LG Unveils Some G2 Accessories Ahead Of G2 Announcement

LG G2 Quick Window

LG’s upcoming flagship device hasn’t been announced quite yet but that isn’t stopping LG from showing off some accessories in the mean time.  Today they have unveiled their new flip cover, known as the QuickWindow, that will pair up with their new device, the G2.  The best way to describe it is a Samsung S View case on steroids.

Like Samsung’s S View cover, there is a window on the top flap so you can check out some of the things going on on your phone without having to actually open the flap.  However, LG’s window appears to be a good deal larger than the S View window and it appears they have created a separate UI just for this QuickWindow mode.  As you can see in the photo above, there are small versions of the clock, weather report, alarm, music player, incoming phone call details and incoming text messages apps designed specifically for this window.  It’s also possible (although I’m just speculating) that LG could potentially share the necessary code with devs so that they too can take advantage of this little window; however, I don’t see too many devs wanting to work on something that’s unique to just one phone.

If you’re interested in these cases, LG says that they’ll launch simultaneously with the new G2 so you should be able to grab it when you pick up your new phone.  All the colour options are shown above and include black, white, pink, purple, blue, mint and yellow.

On a side note, that QuickWindow UX looks like a good start for a smart watch UI…

SEOUL, July 30, 2013 — LG Electronics (LG) will be introducing a line of premium cases for its upcoming flagship device, LG G2, to be available at the same time as the smartphone. The aesthetically beautiful case, QuickWindowTM, is the newest addition to LG’s growing premium smartphone accessory lineup, which includes cases, headsets and portable chargers.

An opening or “window” on the cover of QuickWindowTM allows users to glance at various information displays without having to open the cover flap. With only a light swipe of a finger, the QuickWindowTM UX will appear in the window which users can view while on-the-go. Information that can be viewed through the QuickWindowTM cover include a clock, weather report, alarm, music player, incoming phone call details and incoming text messages.

“LG’s newest premium accessory delivers practical and stylish options while protecting the smartphone, which for many consumers is a significant investment,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our smartphone designers have in mind the type of case they’d like to see on their designs. So it made a lot of sense for LG designers to share with our customers their vision of the perfect accessory.”

The QuickWindowTMcase for the LG G2 will be available in seven different colors, including black, white, pink, purple, blue, mint and yellow. The cases will be available simultaneously with the launch of the LG G2.
