Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge wallpapers leak early, download them here

Well folks, we're only a couple of weeks away from the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and, supposedly, the Galaxy S7 edge. And — naturally — information, pictures, and images that are further from rumorland and closer to what the actual thing is going to look like are leaking. So far, we have alleged photos of the back of the Galaxy S7 and the front of the Galaxy S7 edge, both of which look pretty real to us. Now, we have a selection of wallpapers, which will allegedly come pre-loaded on the handsets.

There are a total of 13 images and a few of them are in the same style as the blue wallpaper we've seen on various Galaxy S7 leaked and promotional images, so it's pretty easy to assume that these are the real thing. The ones that don't have twirly glowing shapes on them are in a Material Design-esque style, with rectangular shapes layered on top of each other, creating the feeling of depth by employing different color gradients and shadows.

We are unsure whether or not these are all the wallpapers we are going to get. They are not necessarily bad, but strike us as being a bit bland, and most of them are in blue, with only a couple being gray and another couple in gold. Looks like if one doesn't like cold colors, they would be pretty limited in choice as far as the stock wallpapers go. Thankfully, there's an abundance of great images on the Internet.

IMO i like to use solid dark colors wallpapers, to keep my screen clear and eye relaxant, but i also like some kind of gradient start dark and go a bit lighter, I wouldn't mind as well to include an abstract vector object to add more life as long it's using a color from the same color palette of the background. thus, i find these wallpapers very soft, relaxant, and alive. Anyway, Samsung is also producing more sophisticated wallpapers and themes such as iron-man, hulk and more, and as the other said, you can always find your taste online.

I can't believe people get angry over launcher, icons and wallpapers. It's not iOS folks. And even on iOS you can change wallpapers. Just download backdrops or tapdeck, if you're unhappy. Bright colorful wallpapers make it hard to see icons and widgets above it, especially a simple text based clock. Dark wallpapers increase contrast. It's a personal preference.

Wallpaper, it takes nothing to download a new one. And these are not offensive wallpapers, they are just 'plain'. Would definitely please those media persons and stock android lovers who like basic/bland stuffs.

(SIGH) Dark... Just like the dark age of Android from Android A to Android K... Such a shame that Uncle Sammy really know how to mess up, screw up & fatten up a perfectly fine piece of 'operating system'... Well, who am I to argue, eh?

It's dark to give a better battery efficiency as the screens will be AMOLED.

Sriniva1995: Samsung is digging its own grave, or so it seems... Samsung is all about Big, bulky, ugly, heavy & "expendy" when it comes to both hardware & software... Samsung will soon be sleeping with the fishes (i.e Nokia, Sony & Blackberry) if it decide to keep on with this arrogant behavior...

Yeah, flat is so boring, I miss 3D. Material design isn't just flat. It has layers built right into it for the purpose of shadows and dimensionality, so I don't know why we have this boring 2D graphics trend going on. Who started this lame style anyways?

@skips Fair enough, mate... But we aren't just complaining about those bloody wallpapers... These wallpapers are a hint about how the upcoming S7's UI will look like... By the look of these wallpapers; it seems like DOOMSDAY & ARMAGADON just had a baby, and its UGLY...!!! And kudos to you, if you recognize the above mentioned quote...!

stop "predicting" and crying like a little toddler until you have seen legit leaks from S7's UI or when the phone is ACTUALLY GOING TO BE ANNOUNCED WALLPAPERS MEAN NOTHING.

its not about not using it its about ads and public opinion, when you see a space image on apple its like wow beautiful like the flower on black screen, its just in ads then people change it later but its about showing off the image quality.

Most untasteful and boring wallpaper you can come across. There must be a reason why one would need vibrant and punchy amoled screen.

Blue is not good for Amoled. It has the shortest life span of the 3 basic colours!

This remind me of my old Xperia T I had a few years back. It had similar live wallpapers that looked like this one. Jeez, nice memories. I miss the design of that phone!! Darn, why Sony never brought it back!!!!!

Yup, normally, colour themes for stock wallpapers means colour of the device also. Therefore, i can see that we have options of dark blue(bluish black?), gold, piano/satin black, or maybe electric blue? Idk, just maybe :)
