June is Pride Month, and as part of a broader initiative in support of LGBTQ+ people, Google has brought a little Pride flavor to its Wallpapers app. Starting today, you can deck out your phone or Chromebook in a collection of vivacious rainbow-colored backdrops — including one featuring an absolutely delightful eel.

Xiaomi introduced the latest iteration of its Android skin MIUI 12 last week. Along with a slew of UI and privacy improvements, the company also showed off new planet-themed "super" wallpapers. As XDA Developers reports, their forum member linuxct has already extracted three of them and made them compatible with most phones running Android 8.1 or above, including Xiaomi devices thanks to a package name change.
A new wallpaper is a quick and easy way to freshen up your phone. If you're a fan of OnePlus's wallpapers, you're in luck — Hampus Olsson, who designs them, has just made the three new 7T backgrounds available for download on his blog.
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. The company is following up with this trend by releasing a bunch of new hole-punch wallpapers for the S10 and S10e featuring Disney and Pixar characters.
Slowly but surely, Google is embracing theming in Android. In the first Android Q beta, basic settings in the developer options allowed us to change the font, icon shape, and accent color throughout the OS. In Beta 2, icon shape selection now applies to settings app icons as well as quick settings and home screen apps. At some point in the future, it appears that a standalone Pixel Themes app will control these functions.
The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro were officially announced earlier this week, and some already have the phones. One of the P30's early testers has shared all the included wallpapers (and EMUI themes) with XDA Developers, so you can use them on your device of choice.
Samsung's first foldable phone, the aptly-named Galaxy Fold, is scheduled to be officially released later this month. As is usually the case with new high-profile phones, someone got their hands on one a little early, and they have graced us with all the included wallpapers.
We were all a bit skeptical when Samsung started talking about the "Infinity-O" display tech last year. As expected, the Galaxy S10 family sports a hole in the display for the front-facing cameras. At first, Samsung sought to downplay the holes, but now it's getting with the trend of wallpapers that work with the cutout.
Samsung has begun shipping its Galaxy S10 family of devices in several countries around the world, which means that many users are now getting to unwrap their shiny new phone, set it up, and gawk at its gorgeous Super AMOLED display... save for that little hole-punch (or two) in the top right corner. But fans can be tenacious and enterprising; you give them an ugly eyesore and they transform it into pure art. Case in point: someone started making a few hole-punch embracing wallpapers that strategically place objects with dark circles right where the cutout is supposed to be. And now there's an entire subreddit dedicated to that.
Some people aren't thrilled with the placement of the Galaxy S10 series' hole-punch cutout, and Samsung seems to be very aware of that. All of the S10's wallpapers conveniently fade to black at their top right corners, which is an interesting tactic. The six new wallpapers are now available for your viewing and downloading pleasure.
