Google's Wallpapers app now offers even more free, high-res wallpapers

In case you didn’t know, Google has its own Wallpaper app. Released last year, at about the same time with the Pixel and Pixel XL, the app is dubbed Google Wallpapers, and it’s available for all Android devices. 

Today, Google updated the app with various new wallpapers, in addition to unspecified bug fixes and interface improvements (though these are likely to go unnoticed).

Overall, Google Wallpapers currently offers almost 300 high-resolution, nice-looking wallpapers – like the one seen on the left. The images are split into five categories: Cityscape, Earth, Landscapes, …

Getting tired of your current wallpaper every time you unlock your device?

Beautiful ultra high-res wallpapers, perfect for your Pixel XL, Galaxy S8 and S7, LG G6, LG V20, HTC U Ultra and others

High-resolution, and high-quality wallpapers are not the easiest thing to find, especially if you have as many as 1440 x 2560 pixels to fill with information – as would be the case if your smartphone has a QHD display.

The reasons for that are several. Perhaps most importantly, however, it’s just exceedinly easy for wallpaper repositories to simply upscale lower resolution content to make it appear as if it would fit perfectly on your fancy screen, but the reality is that stretching the image takes a ton from the quality.

New ASUS tablet with high-res display unveiled in benchmarks

Android tablets are a dying breed, but ASUS won’t give up without a fight. A 9.6-inch tablet was outed in the GFXBench database, carrying decent specs for an upper mid-range model.

On a related note, MediaTek is, indeed, working on a 12-core chip.

The CPU is supplemented by the PowerVR GX6250 graphics unit, hopefully fast enough to power the 2048 x 1536 resolution screen without major hiccups. Added …
