How to download and set wallpapers
First things first: We need to tell you how getting and installing these works.

Samsung Galaxy S23 series
The Galaxy S23 series is a great set of devices, and it looks the part. Especially when you take a look at its wallpapers. Our friends from XDA Developers have pulled them from the firmware, and now you can enjoy them on any phone. There are two sets to choose from. You can get the simpler ones that have what looks like a light flare and abstract scenes. Then there are some One UI 5 wallpapers you’ll enjoy if you prefer something a bit more colorful.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
Here’s another folding handset, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 wallpapers follow a similar design language to previous iterations.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
Similar to the fold series, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 features very similar wallpaper designs to its previous iteration. Let’s take a look at them!
Samsung Galaxy S22 wallpapers
Samsung’s Galaxy S devices are among the most popular smartphones every year. The S22 series is no exception, offering a fantastic set of features, high-end specs, striking designs, and of course, some of the coolest wallpapers around.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 tablet/smartphone hybrid is just as exciting as previous iterations. The device isn’t only multifunctional, but it’s an impressive high-end gadget. Its wallpapers are also really fun, mainly if used on a foldable smartphone of this kind, as the design plays on the whole butterfly-style wings concept.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 wallpapers follow a similar design language to other foldables. These wallpapers display colorful petals that will showcase the phones’ stunning displays, also taking advantage of deep black backgrounds.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE came as a more affordable version of the S21 series, but with an experience that is no short of high-end. In these FE series, Samsung focuses on what matters and gets rid of the extra bells and whistles you get with the flagship devices. It has a less premium design, but the wallpapers look just as good. They follow the same design language as the S21 series but are slightly different, so you should also consider downloading them.
Samsung Galaxy S21 wallpapers
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series is comprised of three handsets. These are the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. All come with the same wallpapers, though. And all feature abstract designs using what seems like colored sand. They’re all great, so have at it.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 wallpapers
Samsung’s Galaxy S devices are the most popular, but true Sammy fanatics know the real flagships are the Galaxy Note handsets. These are usually better spec’d, have larger screens, include an S Pen, and get bigger batteries. 2020 gave us a couple of versions, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, and they come with some nice wallpapers.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 wallpapers
Samsung continues evolving its foldable venture, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a much better option than its predecessor. It also has some nice wallpapers we know you will enjoy. Given its unorthodox screen sizes and ratios, these won’t look great on all devices, but you can give them a try. Just remember that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has two types of wallpapers. The wider ones are for the larger, unfolded screen. The narrow wallpapers are for the smaller outer screen.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G is similar to the original Galaxy Z Flip, and even the wallpapers are similar. They have slight differences, and the Z Flip 5G comes with a couple of extra abstract, colorful images. Don’t try to fold the phone afterward, unless you have an actual Flip!
Samsung Galaxy S20 wallpapers
The Samsung Galaxy S20 series consists of three devices: S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra. These come with some very unique wallpapers. I swear, sometimes I don’t even know what these Samsung wallpapers are all about. Are those… flowers? At least I recognize the bubbles!
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE wallpapers
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE finds a great balance by taking everything people loved about the S20 series, while leaving out what they didn’t care much for. It also maintains a reasonable price that keeps customers’ wallets relatively healthy. The wallpapers changed slightly, but they are very similar, keeping that flowery, colorful design language we know and love.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 wallpapers
The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus come with some bubbly Samsung wallpapers we know many of you are fond of. They have a balanced and colorful ambiance that will make your device look great, so grab them below.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Star Wars Edition wallpapers
The Star Wars Edition is arguably the coolest Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus version. Its Star Wars Samsung wallpapers are just as impressive. And since this is a more rare device, we know many of you will enjoy at least having the wallpapers.
Samsung Galaxy Fold wallpapers
The original Samsung Galaxy Fold underwent some design setbacks, but its wallpapers are some of the coolest. Especially considering how the butterfly theme adapts to the phone’s mechanics. We know it won’t be the same effect on regular smartphones and tablets, but these are still really cool.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip wallpapers
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip introduced the flower and reflection wallpaper that suits its foldable design nicely. There’s also a very dull, mostly gray wallpaper for the Thom Brown edition. You can get the flower versions if you’re feeling adventurous, or the Thom Brown edition if you want to feel a little fancier.
Samsung Galaxy A90 wallpapers
The Samsung Galaxy A90 came with good specs and what used to be an excellent price for a 5G phone when it was launched, back in 2019. It’s no longer a very relevant device, but it came with some unique wallpapers, and we haven’t seen any similar backgrounds released. These even include some Mickey and Minnie ones!
Samsung Galaxy S10 wallpapers
The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus were stunning 2019 contenders, and they continue to be very popular phones right now. Their wallpapers are also very clean, while keeping a colorful vibe, and showing a very elegant, subtle disturbance in the water. If you feel like rocking one of these images, find them right below.
Galaxy M10 and M20 backgrounds
The Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 weren’t very popular phones. They were made for a younger audience, but sacrificed a lot to reach a lower price point. One thing that stood out was its set of wallpapers, though. The phone’s imagery features a unique and surreal look into what looks like reflecting mountains, both below and above. They are trippy, but also very cool. Go get them!
