We’re suckers for a great wallpaper, so we’re always on the hunt for something new. Luckily for all of us, MIUI 12 brings an eye-catching Super Wallpaper into play along with a suite of new features. Xiaomi has released just a few of these wallpapers so far, and here’s how you can bring them to any phone you please.

What is a Super Wallpaper?

If you’re not sure what exactly the MIUI 12 Super Wallpapers are, we can’t blame you. It’s a pretty intense name, but the wallpapers essentially show Earth, Mars, and other planets from afar before going down to the surface when you unlock your device.

It makes for a visually appealing effect, and Xiaomi has continued to roll out Super Wallpapers since the launch of the Mi 10 Ultra. One of the most recent is Faraway Rings, and it shows the planet of Saturn, giving a vertical or horizontal view of the planet’s rings after unlocking.

Fortunately, XDA contributor linuxct (h/t: XDA-Developers) ported the Saturn Super Wallpaper to most devices running Android 8.0 or higher. So you don’t need to buy a Xiaomi device running MIUI 12 to experience this option.

How to install the MIUI 12 Super Wallpaper

Installing this latest Super Wallpaper is simple enough as you download the relevant APK files, install them, and choose the desired option via your phone’s wallpaper picker. XDA-Developers also notes that you can download the Google Wallpapers app from the Play Store if the wallpaper doesn’t show up in your default wallpaper picker.

It’s not exactly easy for us to give you a preview of Super Earth, Super Mars, or Faraway Rings due to their animations. However, each one offers at least three locations for you to explore different parts of the respective planets. You can also control the brightness of each wallpaper for a better view.

You can download the Saturn Super Wallpaper APK files via the button below, along with the Earth and Mars options if you haven’t grabbed them already. Otherwise, you can also find the best live wallpaper apps via the previous link.
