LG launched their 2016 flagship device named as LG G5. It is a great device with major overhaul from previous year models from the company. The LG G5 is having truly modular design which we were expecting to come in future but not this much sooner.

Now the company has launched new set of wallpapers which are new way into the VR area. The company has released some 360-degree spherical wallpapers.These wallpapers are currently available on the LG G5 device only.

The 360 Wallpaper feature allows users to set spherical images as the background image on the LG G5 home screen. By moving the phone or swiping the display, the background takes on a life of its own, similar to the experience one would see in a virtual reality world. The 360-degree photos can also be viewed in Cinematic View while the LG 360 CAM captures spherical photos that can be used as wallpapers on the G5 or uploaded to Google Street View.

The wallpapers will be made available from some professional photographers . Initially there will be 12 professional photographers from the company working on this around the world whihc may increase in future depending upon the demand.

“The G5 is designed to deliver a playful mobile experience to customers and 360-degree imagery is a key part of that experience,” said Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company. “360-degree photography is still in its early stages but we believe it will drive adoption of VR innovation in the mobile space.”
