The new LG G6 smartphone ships with an artsy wallpaper that looks like a stylized number 6. A neat fact about the image is that it’s not a computer rendered artwork: it took two months to create and shoot the photos.
Here’s a 1-minute video by LG showing how the project was done:
Here’s a closer look at the finished photo wallpaper:
Part of the reason the project took so long was that different materials were used to create 4 versions of the same thing: there’s a different wallpaper displayed depending on which UI theme you’re using on the phone.
LG definitely isn’t the first company to create a digital-art-style default wallpaper with a camera: back in 2015, we shared how the default Windows 10 wallpaper was created by photographing light shining through a pane of glass.
