HTC has had a history of designing beautiful artistic wallpapers for their phones, the announcement of the HTC One introduced the latest iteration of HTC’s proprietary Sense UI bringing with it a plethora of new features as well as new wallpapers. HTC has also announced that some legacy devices will be lucky enough to receive some sort of update to Sense 5, but not everyone will be receiving an update, not everyone even use a HTC device or wants Sense. Well for those of you in the latter categories but want to get some of the latest HTC wallpapers you are in luck, XDA-Developers contributor Loan92 was able to sneakily download the new wallpapers off the HTC One and posted them on XDA. So for those of you who are fans of HTC’s minimalistic and unstated wallpapers you should take a look at these. We have posted the wallpapers in a gallery below where you should be able to download the ones you desires.
Personally I have never been a fan of any skins whether it’s TouchWiz or Sense preferring the look and feel of a more stock Android look that is Holo UI compliant, but some of the wallpapers provided by these manufacturers for these skinned UIs are ‘quietly brilliant’ since they not only look brilliant but are designed with the intention of being a mobile phone wallpaper. The 18 new wallpapers provided for the HTC do look brilliant with the right blend of colour and minimalism and considering the number of full HD 1920×1080 phones hitting the market demand for 1080p mobile wallpapers will surely increase.
The wallpapers also have muted colour scheme, so despite HTC’s heavy usage of LCD displays, these wallpapers will also work extremely well with AMOLED displays and the darker, warmer colours will help conserve your phone’s battery. All of these wallpapers are 1920×1080 resolution. so they are designed to take up the entire phone, but it won’t support scrolling wallpapers which is unfortunate. Nonetheless these are amazing wallpapers for those of you looking for an artistically minimalistic design for 1080p devices and don’t require a scrolling wallpaper these might be for you.
