LG Teases Quick Cover Case for LG G5 Also Confirms Metal Build

 

Even though the LG G5 won't be unveiled until February 21st, the manufacturer has introduced the Quick Cover case that it will sell for its new flagship phone. The LG G5 Quick Cover case borrows generously from the one produced for the LG K10, which allows users to take calls without opening the case. The LG G5 Quick Cover does respond to touch, letting you set the alarm without having to open it.
LG has already teased the phone's always on feature, and does so again by showing the display of the LG G5 as viewed through the cutout on the front of the case. The picture shows the time, date and four notification icons underneath. LG also reveals that the LG G5 will have a metallic build. In its press release today, the company points out that the Quick Cover sports a unique film and a glossy metallic finish that complements the LG G5. The LG G4 and LG G3 were both made with a plastic build.

Earlier today, we passed along the results of a trip made through the Geekbench benchmark test by the LG G5. The test confirmed that the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of RAM inside, and Android 6.0.1 pre-installed.

"The latest LG Quick Cover offers the advantages of previous Quick Covers but with added features. The touch function, recently introduced on the K10's Quick Cover View, is now available on the G5 Quick Cover's semitransparent mesh cover. The touch function enables users to take calls and control alarm settings without having to open the case for the ultimate in convenienceLG's signature "second screen" Always-on-Display, rumored to be a feature in the highly anticipated LG G5, allows users to check the time, date and notifications, all with the Quick Cover closed. Complementing the look and feel of the forthcoming LG G5, the new LG Quick Cover incorporates a unique film with a glossy metallic finish to enhance the smooth and luxurious look and feel of the cover."-LG
