We have heard about a lot of apps and softwares that can brick a smartphone or steal sensitive information from it, but today, we have come to know about wallpaper that reportedly bricks an android smartphone if used as wallpaper.
The users who have faced the issue have reported that this wallpaper doesn't completely brick a smartphone, but instead, it makes the smartphone go into a loop, where it keeps on switch off and switch on.
The issue with the wallpaper seems to be with its color space. The reported wallpaper for android uses an RGB color space, while Android works around with an sRGB color space. The newer Android 11 is capable of handling RGB, but Android 10 is yet to be supported.
If you've somehow installed this wallpaper and your phone has been softy bricked, you are left with only two options to recover your smartphone (This method is also used to detect third-party apps, which might be causing conflict with your system).
I'll recommend you try the above method first as it will protect your data, but if the above method hasn't worked for you then, you are left with only one choice that is to reset your smartphone.
