LG QuickWindow Smartphone Case for LG G2

LG won’t be unveiling its next flagship phone until next month, but it has already announced the official case for the LG Optimus G2. dubbed the LG QuickWindow Smartphone Case, the case sports a generous rectangular window on its front much like the one found on Samsung S View Cover, only much bigger. btw, LG has gone all the way out to trademark the product name QuickWindow, just so you know that they are pretty damn serious about the case and its upcoming flagship. anyway, back to the “window” thingy; the “window” (no relation’s to the Redmond company’s operating system) allows users to take a glance at various information such as time, weather, alarm, music player, incoming call, as well as text messages, without having to flip open the cover and with a light swipe, the QuickWindow UX will appear within the confine of the “window”.
