MIUI 12’s latest Geometry and Snow Mountain live wallpapers are now available for download

Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 packs several stunning live wallpapers, and the company keeps adding new options with every other update. Over the last few months, we’ve shared a couple of ports of these wallpapers that let you use them on any non-Xiaomi device. The latest MIUI 12 nightly brings two more additions and, as you’ve probably come to expect by now, XDA Recognized Contributor linuxct has managed to port the latest live wallpapers (unofficially, without the help of Xiaomi) for use on any Android device.

The latest MIUI 12 live wallpaper port includes two new wallpapers: Geometry and Snow Mountain. As you can see in the attached tweets, the Snow Mountain wallpaper offers a unique unlock animation that zooms out of the peak when you unlock your device. The sky and scenery in the wallpaper change color based on the time of day, and it also features some subtle animations that are triggered when you swipe between pages on your homescreen.

On the other hand, the Geometry wallpaper consists of a set of moving geometric shapes in various colors and opacity. The wallpaper has two versions, a bright one with a light blue background and a dark one with a black background. In both versions, the geometric shapes move around as you swipe through pages on your homescreen. However, unlike the Snow Mountain wallpaper, it doesn’t change colors based on the time of day.

As with all previous live wallpaper ports from linuxct, the latest additions make use of the actual OpenGL code from the original wallpaper for the animations. Therefore, they require a capable device to perform as fluidly as shown above. It’s also worth noting that the port won’t work on certain SoCs, like some Exynos, Kirin, and MediaTek chipsets, due to a different OpenGL ES implementation.

If the wallpapers don’t show up in the stock wallpaper picker, you’ll have to install the Google Wallpaper app from the Play Store to apply the wallpapers.
