in Tips & Tricks

Sony Xperia has a new live loop wallpaper for the 2017 Xperia range, including the flagship Xperia XZ Premium. If you’ve been eager to test the wallpaper on your own Xperia device, then you’re in luck, as the Xperia Loops live wallpaper can be found below.

The apk file will only install on stock Xperia Android Nougat firmware, so don’t go trying it if you’re still on Marshmallow. Make sure you have “Unknown sources” enabled under Settings > Security. Let us know how you get on in the comments below.

Update: Please check out the warning from Artem Russakovskii of Android Police fame below, regarding the signature of the apk below. Download at your own risk.

DOWNLOAD APK: Xperia Loops [Alternatively, this version works on all Android Nougat devices with OpenGL ES 3.2 API supported]

Via XDA.

    Works perfectly on Xperia X.

  • SM

    any specific android version require?

  • LocalPatriot

    Thank you Sony! Works fine in my XZ. Sony is the best!

  • Stergios Papoutsoglou

    I love live wallpapers. Thanks

  • LocalPatriot

    I have a problem. When I lock the phone and unlock the lines goes down, and stay there not like the gif upper. Why?

  • LeviYO

    Fully tested and working on Xperia X 7.1.1 Concept Initiative

  • LeviYO

    I kind of have the same problem as I had this happen to me, I went to sleep and when I woke up the wallpaper was fine again. I’m not sure if it’s meant to do so or how long it takes for it to go back to normal? I totally understand what you mean though, you can touch the wallpaper and the circles don’t appear or it doesn’t interact as it should.

  • LocalPatriot

    And I think on my phone the wallpaper isn’t move. This isn’t live wallpaper. What is the wrong on my phone?

  • joseph carmine nero


  • Sami Karem
  • Love this live wallpaper! And it have so many colors and options.

    Btw, do you guys know if there´s an icon pack with the old Sony Icos (on MM)?

  • Saeed

    Update this please, at the next update on XZ.

  • Nayib

    Can you explain?

  • Just FYI, this APK has been re-signed with a known test key, it’s not an original Sony signature. (just try uploading it to and you’ll see we’re blocking this known test key). I feel like this should be pointed out in the post.

  • Nayib

    Does this mean the app could be infected?

  • It’s probably not likely, but yes, it was modified in some way and is NOT signed by Sony. The modification could be anything. But what’s worse is that because the key used was publicly available, anyone can craft an updated APK with anything else added to it, sign it with the same key, and pretend it’s an update to this APK. You will then install it, and Android will accept it because the key is the same.

  • Ħoussam Ȝabbara

    Nice wallpaper , and we need clock widget like Xperia XZ premium

  • PatQQ

    what widget is that?~

  • Svnjay

    The new Sony weather widget.

    You can change the transparency in the app settings.

  • Svnjay

    Looks “busy”.

  • still nothing beats the old wave livescreen on ice cream sandwich.

  • alexander gomez miguelm


  • Diego

    Thanks for warning Artem. AP in action!

  • Objectif

    Where did you find this new widget ?

  • Igor Eisberg

    The following APK should work on any Nougat device (Sony-related dependency removed). Unfortunately, I couldn’t port it to anything lower than Nougat because this Live Wallpaper explicitly uses OpenGL ES 3.2 (new to Nougat) while Lollipop and Marshmallow only support up to OpenGL ES 3.1. Please confirm that it’s working for you, I don’t have Nougat on my device.

  • Svnjay
  • Asu

    Hello mate, how dyou have this icon in the nav bar ? all white icon, and what is your iconpack for the apps ?^^ ty

  • Jussi Tuomola

    I downloaded material night theme from play store. It has the bottom bar included, don’t know any other themes just yet with such. The icon pack comes from another theme: material premium impression. Hope this helps :)

  • Jussi Tuomola

    Like Svnjay said: the widget is sony’s own weather app’s widget and set the widget transparency to 100%.

  • Objectif

    Ah OK yes. I got it it too. It’s not n ew. I thought it a real new widget.

  • Svnjay

    Okay, awesome that you have it too. It was introduced with the Xperia XZ. It was made available on the PlayStore but added to the OS of older phones in Nougat.

  • Asu

    Thank you so much :)

  • Objectif

    Yes. I like it. Before I used Fancy Widget. But I prefer This Sony widget.

    I wish this worked on my z1 compact ;(
    Earlier I could install up to 5.0 android to my WT19i (which came with gingerbread), I hoped that z1c xda support would be even longer, but i’m still on lollipop ;/

  • toby rogers

    Thanks. Everything seems to be running slow

  • Karan Dutt

    Somebody, please tell me that the sides of the Xperia xz premium are made of metal. Please…because it would suck if they’re made of plastic like the regular xz.

  • LazAndKor

    With so many technologies working in harmony, the Xperia XZ Premium is beautiful inside and out. The experience begins with our exquisite glass loop surface, which surrounds the seamless exterior to create a luxurious look and feel.
    Glass and Metal.

  • Shehab Skull

    KEEP CALM BRO ! that dude who pushed out that apk from system dump wanted to add the name of his website inside it ( honestly I didn’t like that ) so he moved his apk to an APKTOOL folder added some command to extract its files .. then went to res/values/strings and changed the apk name to whatever he wants .. then rebuilded it and signed it using APKTOOL or zipsigner ( not sure what did he used ) then uploaded it online .. so no need to worry .. signing that apk was very important as u will get ” parse error ” message if u didn’t do it after your edits ..

  • theskig

    Thanks Artem for the info! ;)

  • dragonsneeze

    They explicitly keep away from commenting on that. They either don’t want to break the “glass loop” promise or sides are plastic. I’ve watched tons of videos all they say is glass front and back, metal top and bottom. I guess we’ll have to wait for JerryRig’s vid. Gsmarena thinks it’s metal but they thought the same with the XZ

  • I prefer PSP like LW from Xperia PLAY.

  • Karan Dutt

    I’ve too watched almost each and every video on YouTube and none of them have mentioned anything about the sides. And yes eagerly waiting for Jerry’s video but I bet that’s going to take some time as I’ve noticed that the dude doesn’t review many Sony phones. Anyway, thanks for your reply.

    P.S. Does the glass loop design entail that the sides are made of gorilla glass 5 as well? Because that’d be fine. A lot better than stupid polycarbonate.

  • Moisés

    I believe it is metal.
    Xz has plastic frame because of signal and Sony did not want to uae external antenna.
    Glass phones have better signal and lower SAR.

  • Moisés

    I guess the back is flat like Z phones, not little bit curved like XZ.
    Front may be regular 2.5D style

  • Moisés

    A website of my country said earlier Xiaomi Mi 6 might have imx400.
    I do not think it is true. Sensor used on Z and X were not sold to other brands….

  • Ryan

    Works beautifully on my XZ!! Cheers

  • razorg

    Maybe Sony is in dire need of some hot cash right now. And considering how well Xiaomi Mi4, Mi5 etc all sold due to higher specs and low prices, Mi6 expected to be more or less the same in this sense, which means more Mi6 sales=more IMX400 sales, and Sony earning some extra cash. Although I read that Sony is supposedly going to “limit” the fps from 960 to 480 on Mi6 sensors because they want to be the only one offering 960fps slow-mo for some while.

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Did you change the name of the apk yourself?
    Can you upload it??

  • dragonsneeze

    My pleasure :) I really don’t know if it is gg5. Gsmarena “was dissapointed” that it was metal. Or so they thought. I can’t tell if it’s metal or glass even from the close up shots. I’m baffled by those reviewers not noticing what it’s made of. If I handled it I’d be able to tell if it’s metal or glass or plastic. You can try asking in Sony Mobile’s forum. Maybe more knowledgable people like the mods would answer.

  • Moisés

    Sony already said it is Gorilla Glass 5.
    People do not know this, but Z3+ and Z5 have GG4 on their screens.

    Their rear glass is more resistent than the one on z3.

  • Moisés

    You have a youtube channell right?

  • dragonsneeze

    I’m talking about the sides not front and back. Some employees said glass wraps around. But sides don’t look like they are made of glass. Gsm arena thinks it’s metal and all others don’t even mention the sides. I just checked the forum. There’s one thread about this and no official comment from any sony officials.

  • Paul

    I know metal sides are more premium, but I really appreciate the plastic sides of my XZ. I don’t use a case and the plastic provides a much better grip. I was always on the verge of dropping my Z3 due to its slippery sides.

  • Simon

    Installs and applies just fine, can select the different colors etc. But there is no rings or nothing hehe, just a flat gradient ;) S7 Edge.

  • Karan Dutt

    I guess, to each his own. My point is that if a company expects me to pay 800$ for a smartphone…they better use good quality metal like the 7000 series aluminum or something instead of polycarbonate which is fairly cheap.

  • bobcat22

    I already install it but i can’t find it in themes?
    Does anyone knows how can i find it or where??

  • Moisés

    Do you believe plastic frame can last longer.. My z4 is not even 1 year old and corners are getting darker.

  • Moisés

    XZ P seems to have metal frame. Like all Z phones.

    The Xperia made of metal, have plastic frames..

    I do not know if the top and bottom of XZP are metal or plastic..
    Buttons of XZ are plastic.. About XZP I do not know

  • dragonsneeze

    Seems like it. But it’s not confirmed officially. When they were talking about it they did not mention a metal frame. Only metal top and bottom. If it’s really metal it makes sense. There’s no reason for it to be plastic while the whole back is radio friendly.

  • rus_media

    This is live wallpaper. Not theme.

  • Naim Noor

    Hopefully the stock Xperia XZ premium clock widget will be made available soon. Good jub guys!

  • Ben Ling

    Works on any Android phone running Android 7.0 or above with OpenGL ES 3.2API supported.


    I got paid 104,000 thousand dollars last year by freelancing online a­n­d I did that by wo­rking part-time f­­o­­r 3+ hrs /daily.

    I profited 104,000 bucks in last twelve months by freelancing from my house a­­n­­d I did that by working part-time f­­o­­r several h /daily. I was following a money making model I came across from company that i found online and I am so happy that i earned so much money. It’s really user-friendly and I am just so blessed that i found it. Here is what i do…

  • Viktor Vickun

    works great on z5 + android 7.0
    what about the clock ? is there a port ? looks fab

  • Salim Nassiff

    The live wallpaper reacts to the battery level. The rings turn red and go to the bottom when power is low. It goes back to normal when you charge the phone overnight.

  • gross.julie

  • Fully working on Xperia Z5 Nougat!
    As mentioned by @SalimNassiff, I thought this should be pointed out again, the live wallpaper reacts to battery level, once your device reaches 15% or lower, the rings drop to bottom of the screen and they turn red. They go back to normal as device recharges.
    As for the signature issue, I downloaded the first file @XperiaBlog provided on the post. Should I download the new one, or which one is the risky file?
    Thanks Guys
