LG launches G2 case accessory ahead of G2 launch
LG has taken the unusual step to give an early reveal for the QuickWindow Case accessory for its yet to be launched G2 flagship. Taking its design cues from the Samsung S View Cover for the Galaxy S4, the new case protects the 5.2inch display while simultaneously allowing users to glance at a variety of different app and widget views. It steps functionality up from the Galaxy case, which is currently limited to offering users a view of the combined clock and weather widget and alerts.
LG says that users only need to use a light swipe of a finger to launch the QuickWindow UX allowing users to glance at the info they want without having to open the cover. Functions that can be viewed through the cover include a clock, weather report, alarm, music player, incoming phone call details and incoming text messages. The accessory will be available in seven different colors including black, white, pink, purple, blue, mint and yellow.
The cases will be available simultaneously when the G2 is launched on August 7.
