Right before the HTC One M9 was announced, we came across a flurry of wallpapers believed to be of the smartphone. Now with the One M9+ expected to break cover soon, it has received similar treatment as well.
Over the last few days, we’ve seen a steady drip feed of leaks and rumours about the HTC One M9 Plus, with a possible announcement for the device on April 8th according to an HTC invite. Today’s leak sees the Quad HD wallpapers of the alleged HTC One M9 Plus becoming available to download.
So, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is getting closer and closer to becoming available in the retail shops, but what if you are in the middle of a contract or can’t afford to get the Next Big Thing? Well, you can always choose to give your current phone a fresh lick of paint by installing some new wallpapers. On that topic, we have the stock wallpapers of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets available for download after the break.
Continuing the slow and steady release of HTC One M9 wallpapers, Twitter user @LlabTooFer has posted what would be the ninth and tenth wallpapers for the device. The two most recent images lean on geometric shapes, one circles and one diamonds, to create a background tapestry for the devices. If you want to check out these new wallpapers, just hit the break. Once you see them, if you want to download the full-size images, just follow the source link for download links.
Everybody can use a new wallpaper every now and then and sometimes you can find some really cool one pre-installed on new smartphones. Take for instance, the LG G Flex 2. They have pre-installed 10 new wallpapers and they are available for you to download right now. It’s not about trying to make your phone look like an LG device, it’s more about finding something that looks cool on your device, whether it’s LG or not. Of course, if you’re sporting an older LG device, these might give you the feeling that your device is a little newer than it really is. Hit the break for all the goods.
Google has started pushing out an update to the Chrome OS taking it up to version 40. As is usual for an update to a major system like the OS, Google has included a host of bug fixes, security updates and feature enhancements, most of which are under the hood or run in the background. However, users will see a few changes in the look of the desktop on Chrome OS.
The changes that will be most noticeable involve the default wallpaper, which has been updated to reflect a Material Design. If users happen to own more than one Chrome device, the wallpaper, including custom wallpapers, will now be synced across their devices. If users enjoy using emoji in their communications, they will find a new emoji palette has been added to give users quicker access.
If you have a Chrome OS powered device, be on the lookout for the update to be available to you soon.

Samsung is in the process of bringing a couple metal body mid-range devices to market, the Samsung Galaxy E7 and the Galaxy A7.

Over the weekend he collected 142 material wallpapers While some of the wallpapers are different color variations of the same wallpaper, Even so, this album should have something for everyone.
