There's an interesting happening in the background.

If you directly apply this wallpaper then it will crash your phone, but if you take a screenshot of the image and then set it as wallpaper, it works fine. that's because, in gallery, android converts the photo to sRGB.

Tech becomes crazy as we deep dive into it.

Now what I did was, upload this image on a website that supported the ProPhoto color space, then I uploaded the image converted by, combined and downloaded as sRGB.

Due to this original colors were preserved.
