The case includes a special surface with touch and swipe support. An official launch price was not disclosed.

LG Electronics has yet to officially present the G5 flagship. Nonetheless, users have been extrapolating details based on existing rumors and accessory leaks. After LG recently confirmed an "always-on" display for the G5, the manufacturer announced an appropriate Quick Cover Case for the still unannounced smartphone.

The protective case includes a large opening for users to see a portion of the screen. Thus, users can easily see real-time information and updates without needing to open the cover and turn on the screen.

The case itself is capable of registering touch inputs via a series of mesh small holes that are reminiscent to the dot-view cases from HTC. Users can swipe left or right directly on the case to accept or reject calls without needing to unfold the cover. The case will have a metallic finish according to the announcement.

LG will formally unveil the G5 this coming MWC 2016 in Barcelona alongside many other competitors including the Samsung Galaxy S7 series. The HTC One M10 reveal is expected to follow in the coming weeks as well. Both LG and HTC are facing sales woes in regards to their respective mobile divisions according to their latest earnings reports.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
