There are a mixture of HD Android wallpapers and QHD Android wallpapers so you can get stuff specifically for your 1440p device if you have one but you’ll need to wade through as there seems to be no categorization between HD and QHD.

Yes, friends, I have been curating my own private collection on Google Photos that I’ll be sharing with you. I have amassed them from various posts and articles by other blogs so you may have seen a variety of these before. There are roughly 265 images that range between scrollable and vertical. They’re all QHD or better as well. There are some landscapes, cityscapes, space, abstract, and smatterings of animals, cars, and people.
