The history-making black hole discovered by the Event Horizon telescope joins Star Wars, Disney and Futurama characters on the Galaxy S10 phone.
Already referred to as the Eye of Sauron after the The Lord of the Rings novel,, in honor of late singer Chris Cornell, or Powehi, Hawaiian for “embellished dark source of unending creation,” the historic moment can now encircle the hole-punch selfie camera cutout on your phone. (Step-by-step instructions on how to install these Galaxy S10 wallpapers are at the end.)
Samsung calls this design the Infinity-O display, and its default wallpapers attempt to hide the cutout by darkening the top corner, but some Samsung fans have created wallpapers that turn the cut-out into an eyeball for your favorite characters, from Bender, the robot from Futurama, Baymax, the lovable robot from Big Hero 6 and Darth Vader and R2-D2 of Star Wars fame. Scroll through the best of the bunch below.
