Behind-the-scenes video shows how LG created the V30’s wallpaper

The hype machine for the LG V30 is gathering pace as we get closer to its launch at IFA 2017 in Berlin on August 31st, with Evan Blass doing what he does and LG posting details about its latest UX 6.0 interface, the floating bar that replaced the V20’s secondary display, as well as the handsets’ dual camera setup. Continuing the trend, the Korean handset maker has posted a video showing how the V30’s main wallpaper was designed, which we have thoughtfully embedded for you after the break. 

If like me, you thought that the wallpaper would simply involve a designer sat in front of a computer designing, then you’ll also be surprised by the level of effort needed to produce said wallpaper. From cutting out what appears to be perspex letters and numbers to the expert positioning of different colored laser beams to refract light, it’s a surprisingly complex process.

Excitement levels for the V30 are high, with LG having ditched the gimmicky secondary display in favor for, hopefully, getting the fundamentals right. Unlike the G6 that launched in February at MWC 2017, the V30 is powered by 2017 silicon, in the form of the Snapdragon 835 processor.

You can check out the behind-the-scenes video on how the wallpaper is made below. Considering everything that we know about the V30, what are your thoughts on LG’s upcoming new flagship? Are you onboard the hype machine yet?
