Samsung has done it again. Similar to the Galaxy S10 Plus, both the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus also sport the hole-punch display. And this time, Samsung has gone all in and places the camera cutout at the top center of the display. And well, it's not distracting to some extent. However, if you are looking to hide this tiny hole from plain sight with cleverly designed hole-punch wallpapers, you have come to the right place.
But (there's always a but), hole-punch wallpapers are not the only way to hide the selfie shooter. You can also try your luck with well-made wallpapers for AMOLED screens or images with whimsical backgrounds.
So yeah, if you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus, it's time you procure a new set of wallpaper apps. The images will do full justice to the QHD edge-to-edge display of your phones.
Let's get started.

1. For the Camera Cutout: Punch Hole Wallpapers
How about we begin with celebrating the hole-punch camera? The Punch Hole Wallpapers app has a pretty cool collection of creative wallpapers centered around the camera. From images of R2D2 to Groot and Bart Simpson, the collection is pretty cool & diverse, and the chances are that you won't be disappointed.
The app lets you set the background from within the app. Once you've selected an image, align it over the camera, and hit the Set Wallpaper button.
As we mentioned above, the collection is quite good. However, some images are not high-resolution. Also, if you happen to have the Motion Wallpaper option enabled, you'd need to disable it for some of the images to fit well. Plus, there are a couple of ads in this app.
If you know your way around the wallpaper world, the odds are that you'll find similar images in many online apps. So, if you want your phone's background to do justice to that awesome display (and that camera cutout), say Hi to WallPix.
This one has a pretty incredible collection of high-resolution images in a diverse theme. And the cool thing is that the backgrounds for the Note 10 are neatly categorized under a single roof.
The images are solid and bright, and more importantly, they are colorful which bodes well with the AMOLED display of the Note 10. Apart from that, there are other categories which you can explore as well. Plus, you can also mark a few images as Favorite.
The Galaxy Note 10 user in you must know that black or dark wallpapers help get more battery life out of your phone. Plus, they are pleasant for the eyes. And the dark and mysterious look is the cherry on top.
Though there are many apps for AMOLED wallpapers, my favorite is Darkops (AMOLED Wallpapers). This app carries a plenty of wallpapers spread across several different categories. And the quality is quite top-notch.
The images are unique in their ways. The dark tone is balanced beautifully by the warm swath of color. If you are new to the world of AMOLED wallpapers, I reckon to give the Landscape category a shot.
Want your home screen backgrounds to change automatically? If yes, say Hi to Walli.
Apart from hosting stunning custom artworks, this app also lets you create a playlist for wallpapers. Yep, you read that right. Create a list, and throw in a bunch of wallpapers into the mix, and forget all about it. The phone will take care of the rest.
To create a playlist, you'll need to create an account or use your Google or Facebook account to log in. If you're fine with that, you can go ahead and create the list.
Aside from the above, Walli's primary feature is its set of custom and unique images. A community of artists create all the pictures, which results in creative and uncommon backgrounds.
Cool Tip: The Editor's Choice folder, under Categories, hosts some of the coolest and highly-rated wallpapers. So you can check them and add images from that folder to your playlist.
If sticking to a particular theme is not your mantra, Dopewalls is the app for you. From superhero walls to nature images, you won't be disappointed. Apart from that, most of the images are high-resolution. The image details such as size and resolution are visible at the bottom.
Cool Tip: Check out the Trending section of the app to discover some of the coolest images out there.
If you want high-def images for your Note 10, you can give the Crisper app a go. This cool app houses both illustrations and images. The crux of this app is the clean and mostly white look. And the best thing about this theme is they deliver a sense of calm.
Crisper is in early access, for now, so you might see some glitches sometimes.
