Your guide to a better future
The wallpaper designs join others like the first-ever image of a black hole and Darth Vader.
Disney and Pixar are finally getting in on the action of the wallpapers. Samsung has collaborated with the brands on official S10 wallpapers that incorporate the hole-punch shape in the middle of the screen where the front-facing camera goes. You can download the new wallpapers for free from your Galaxy S10 phone. Characters draw from movies like Frozen, Zootopia and The Incredibles. They also include the stalwart Mickey Mouse.
Samsung’s partnership with Pixar and Disney follows a trend started by fans, who created their own wallpapers to celebrate (or mock) the camera cutout, turning the area into an integral part of the wallpaper’s design — like an eyeball, button or other element.
In addition to the official wallpapers, you can also get fan art that includes the first image of a black hole, Bender, the robot from Futurama, Baymax, the lovable robot from Big Hero 6 and Darth Vader and R2-D2 ($270 at Amazon) of Star Wars fame. Scroll through the best of the bunch below. (Step-by-step instructions on how to install these Galaxy S10 wallpapers are at the end.)
