New official Infinity-O wallpapers integrate Disney and Pixar characters with your Galaxy S10's camera cutout

When Samsung designed its Infinity-O display, it probably didn't expect fans around the world would create amazing wallpapers to embrace the camera cutout. In fact, these were so popular they even got their own subreddit, before the company itself published a few official ones.

With the Pixel 2, Google introduced automatic dark/light themes dependent on your wallpaper. It was a short-lived exclusive, making its way to Android 8.1 just days later. It hasn't even been a year since then, but Google is already changing the themes' behavior slightly — for the better, in my opinion.
