Are you tired of looking at your old boring wallpaper? Google recently published 3 new collections of wallpapers to the Chrome OS Canary channel, and in my opinion: they're stunning. You can download them right now — even if you don't own a Chromebook.
A good wallpaper can make a phone feel whole. It's what really ends up bringing the visual experience of a phone together. That's why wallpapers are so important, especially on devices from phone-makers like Samsung. Sometimes Samsung make mistakes, like uploading an unreleased device's firmware really early, and that lets us dig through it to find these great wallpapers.
While you can download the Galaxy S20 FE wallpapers right now, the Galaxy S20 FE hasn't actually been announced yet. Yesterday, Samsung announced Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan where they are likely going to announce the Galaxy S20 FE, but at the moment nothing is official.
Developer and XDA forums member linuxct, who just last month ported Xiaomi's "super" wallpapers for use on other Android phones, has done it again — this time, they've exported live wallpapers from the Asus ROG Phone 3. And with a few downloads plus a little know-how, you can have them on your phone, too.
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.
