So the Google Pixel embargo dropped today, and if you haven’t noticed, it’s getting pretty good reviews — including from us. One of the nicer touches that Google added with the Pixel in this writer’s opinion is a wide variety of stock wallpapers to choose from. It seems that the wallpaper picker is pulling some of them from the web, but some others — the ones you see below — are actually found in an APK that ships with the Pixel…

You may be aware that these leaked earlier this year, but we thought we would pull apart the APK ourselves now that we have our hands on the Pixel XL and share them with you. We also figured that you might be in search of them now that the Pixel is about to ship, especially if you’re anxiously awaiting yours to hit your doorstep. Yes, that’s a little bit obsessive, but it’s okay. We know how it is.

Check out the gallery below to download all the “New elements” and “Sky high” wallpapers from the Pixel in full resolution. These aren’t all the Pixel wallpapers, mind you, but they’re the ones that we could easily get our hands on.
