Google hasn’t even come close to showing off the new Nexus phone(s) for 2016, but that hasn’t stopped a slow
trollout of leaks involving them. We’ve heard the specs, seen mock-up renders, and now have supposed wallpapers from the device that you can download. (more…)
We are still a few days away from HTC’s unveiling of the HTC 10, but since when has that ever stopped the Android community from getting their hands on the goodies? In the latest release of intel, a well known HTC leaker has published a gathering of wallpapers that will be included on the HTC 10. In my own personal opinion, they are way better than anything you will ever find on Samsung device, so here’s your chance to rock them before the phone is even announced. (more…)
Thanks to a forum member who goes by the nick JK Shine (get it?) over at SamMobile, we supposedly have the wallpapers for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. There are 13 in total and they certainly look a lot like Galaxy S wallpapers we have seen in the past. They all feature those sort of swooping brush stroke, sea-ish, futuristic jellyfish designs that we have grown accustomed to with Samsung phones. They also tossed in a couple of Material Design friendly options.
And yes, the wallpaper you are seeing in the renders above, that hilariously looks like a “6” even though these phones are of the S7 line, is included. (more…)
Yesterday, on Google’s Design site, Rachel Been penned an article that shared the story of the art behind the new wallpapers in Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The story talks of the artist’s (Carl Kleiner) use of different types of paper, layering, and lighting to create these Material Design beauties…wait a minute. Did I just say paper, layering, and lighting? I did. Wait, you mean the Material Design wallpapers in Android 6.0 aren’t just digital creations? They are real compositions of paper that are actual photographs? Indeed they are. How cool is that? (more…)
In Preview 3 of Android 6.0, Google included a handful of new wallpapers, all of which we have for you below. Some of the new wallpapers will look like releases from the past because of their aerial views, but Google also mixed in new colors and textures into many.
There are 9 wallpapers in total. You’ll find four of them below, along with a .zip full of all 9. (more…)
The OnePlus 2 may not arrive until August 11, but one of their lead OxygenOS designers just handed out the phone’s wallpapers ahead of time to “keep the hype up.” There are supposed to be 27 wallpapers in the bunch, but we’re only counting 25. Still, here are 25 free wallpapers that will probably look good on any device, not just the new OnePlus 2.
Below, we’ve put together a mini preview of the lot, but if you head through the download link, you can grab a .zip of all of the papers in full resolution.
You may not be interested in the OnePlus 2, but who can say “no” to hot wallpapers on a Saturday afternoon? (more…)
Wouldn’t you know it? It’s Wednesday. And you know what that means – it’s Google Apps Update Day! So far, app updates are available for Hangouts (available earlier this morning) Google Wallet, Inbox, and Android Wear. While today is not as hectic as last Wednesday in terms of updates, these improvements are certainly welcomed from Google. (more…)
