There are golds that clash with so, so much (sorry, Jerry). There are occasionally pinks and reds that pop up months after launch. There are even sometimes greens… gorgeous, gorgeous greens. Now, blues aren't unheard of in phone colors, but it's rare to see one that's this bold.
Look at that! That's not sapphire, that's not eggshell, that's BLUE. Really Blue. And now, for your enjoyment and pleasure, some really blue wallpapers!
Look at this detailing! Look at the curves on this fractal! It's clinically precise, gracefully fluid, and stunningly beautiful. Bonus: the black background of the fractal will help it pop on the Pixel's AMOLED screen.
Space is really black, but this deep cerulean spacescape just makes me want to ask Google about life in the rest of the galaxy… and other galaxies. It's frosty, it's mysterious, it's awesome... literally awesome.
My Little Pony Friendship is Magic's underappreciated Princess of the Night is a fabulous blue pony with a really blue and really sparkly mane. A guardian of dreams (and an avid gamer in fan artwork), Luna is a pony with taste and style, and she would absolutely rock the Really Blue Pixel XL, with as many games as she could load on it as possible.
Okay, Google, how many stars are in the universe?
Space is filled with stars, including a lot of blue stars, like Blue Dwarfs and Blue Giants (not to be confused with the Giants that crushed the Mets last night). While we will likely never reach out through the galaxy and see other stars and other worlds up close, that doesn't mean we can't reach for the stars… especially on our home screen.
Sometimes simple really is best, and while you wait for your Really Blue Pixel to arrive, you can have a Really Blue home screen. Grab a bold icon pack and you've got yourself a swank little theme ready to jump to your new phone in a few weeks.

Google Pixel 4a review: The best camera under $400 is a perfect 2020 phone
It turns out Google's "less is more" approach really fits well within the constraints of a less-expensive phone, and its strengths in software and camera processing stand out against less-refined competition. The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
