Manufacturers always seem to get ahead of themselves. The latest example is LG, which has cheekily introduced a new Quick Cover case for the “yet-to-be announced LG G5“. The company has written up an entire press release filled with small jabs and jokes about the G5′s unannounced state. But all that aside, this new Quick Cover case actually looks quite interesting and feature-packed.
LG’s new Quick Cover case features LG’s new touch function, which allows users to take calls and silence alarms simply by swiping on the semi-transparent cover. The Quick Cover case also features a cut-out that enables you to see the information on the LG G5′s always-on display, which the company also recently began teasing. With this, users can quickly see the time, date and small icons informing them of their notifications.
The case is designed to be consistent with the look of the LG G5, so it’s likely that the LG G5 will feature a similar glossy metallic finish.
LG will be showing off the Quick Cover case at its Mobile World Congress booth between February 22 and 25. Alongside the new case will be the new LG G5, which will have been officially announced by that point.

The latest LG Quick Cover offers the advantages of previous Quick Covers but with even more 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. It enables users to take calls and control alarm settings without opening the case for the ultimate in convenience.
Users of the case can check the time, date and notifications on the Always-on Display of the yet unseen LG G5 even with the cover closed. LG also incorporated a unique film with a glossy metallic finish to enhance the smooth and luxurious look and feel of the cover for maximum consistency with the speculative LG G5.
The Quick Cover for LG G5 will be on display at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from February 22-25. Visitors to MWC are encouraged to stop by LG’s booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via to see the LG Quick Cover and the rumored LG G5 for themselves.
