What are Xiaomi’s Super Wallpapers?

Xiaomi’s exclusive set of Super Wallpapers are a unique feature on their phones, where the same wallpaper essentially blends across the AOD, lock screen, and the home screen with a continuous, fluid motion.

Earlier this year, Xiaomi brought the new “Moon” Super Wallpapers to HyperOS, featuring five scenes (Chang’e 5, Tranquility Base, The Apennines, Moon Palace, and The Far Side of the Moon). Initially limited to HyperOS devices, the pack has now been ported by developers at App Ports” to run on any Android device.

The Pre-Requisites

The port includes a pack of all six Super Wallpapers: Earth, Geometry, Mars, Moon, Saturn, and Snow Mountain. For this app to work properly, you will need to have:

  1. Google Wallpapers Installed: Make sure you have the Google Wallpapers app installed on your device.
  2. Android 10+: Your phone’s operating system must be Android 10 or later.
  3. Active internet connection: An active internet connection is required to download the wallpaper pack initially.

Please note that these wallpapers require the Google Wallpapers app that comes built-in on Pixel devices and some other phones. It can be downloaded from the Play Store as well. You can easily check if the app is already available by going to settings, then Apps and searching for “Wallpapers.” If neither works for you, then you can download the APK from APKMirror.

Other Xiaomi’s Super Wallpapers included in the pack

This means that while the wallpapers should work on any device compatible with Google Wallpapers, some manufacturers may use their own proprietary settings for managing wallpapers, potentially leading to minor bugs.

↪ Limitations

While Xiaomi’s Super Wallpapers are optimized for devices with Always-On Display, the ported version currently only allows rooted devices to access the AOD feature. While non-rooted devices can still install and use the wallpapers, they unfortunately won’t be able to set them on the AOD screen.

Installing the Moon Super Wallpaper

Each wallpaper in the ported pack comes as an APK file that needs to be installed, and the wallpaper automatically appears in your device’s wallpaper setting. The pack is available on the App Ports Telegram channel, linked below.

Known Issues

While the installation process was relatively straightforward, the port did not function properly on all devices. The developer mentions that “wallpapers cannot be displayed on the Always-On Display (AOD) on some OEM skins (One UI, OxygenOS).” However, during our testing, we encountered additional issues running the app on some custom ROMs.

When tested on a device running PixelOS, the Moon Super Wallpaper displayed a black screen before defaulting back to a stock wallpaper. All other wallpapers in the pack appeared to function normally. In contrast, the wallpapers worked perfectly on three different Xiaomi devices running MIUI and one device running Pixel Experience.

Super Wallpapers have always been criticized for their excessive battery usage. Similarly, since these are essentially Live Wallpapers, they tend to drain your battery more quickly. So, please use them accordingly and be aware of the toll these can take on your phone’s battery life.

Yes, the wallpapers will run fine; however, if you need to use these wallpapers on your phone’s Always-On Display, you will need to root your device.
