Google usually offers new wallpapers with the release of Pixel phones, take the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro wallpapers, for instance. However, the software giant has been using the same pink sky wallpaper on AOSP since Android 7 Nougat that dates back to 2016. If a new report from XDA‘s Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman is anything to go by, Google is bringing a new wallpaper for AOSP with Android 12.1.
