While the LG G2 won’t become official until the 7th of August, LG has still managed to unveil a case for the much anticipated successor to the LG Optimus G (LG dropped the Optimus tag from its high-end devices).

LG has labelled the case/cover “QuickWindow” and it’s one of those cases with a cover which flips over the screen. It also has a slot in the front cover that reveals a part of the screen to display messages, incoming calls, the weather, the time, an alarm, the music player or just the time.

Now if that sounds familiar it might be because Samsung unveiled almost exactly the same case for the Galaxy S4 called S-View cover. They both seem to work thanks to some nifty software which reformats the screen to the size of the slot and allows you to protect the front of the device, and still keep up with notifications, and answer phone calls without having to flip the cover flap over.

If you’re already planning to buy the LG G2 and want to use an official accessory then you’ll be happy to know that the QuickWindow case will be available in a multitude of colors like black, blue, mint, pink, purple, white and yellow.

The case isn’t the only thing that’s interesting about the G2 as it will feature a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a Full HD 5.2-inch display and a 2580 mAh battery. The smartphone will be unveiled in New York on the 7th of August so stay tuned for more coverage.

What do you think of the QuickWindow cover? Is it weird for an official case to come out before the phone is, erm, official?

    LG doesn’t need a marketing or research, just copy Samsung and you’ll do fine ;D

      LG was the FIRST to introduced this kind of Case cover for its LG Spectrum2 before Samsung Copied this LG’s idea for s4.

      Quick Window cover is more functional and better than S-view cover.

        In what aspect exactly?
        The S-View cover let’s you answer calls and change music, see time and interact with the device too, stop being a stupid sheep.

          LG LTE Smart pouch cover is very similar to s-view cover,
          Obviously samsung took LG’s idea…

          No more arguement samsung ia very well known cheater and copycat…

          • Skander

            Huh?

            Samsung announced the S-View cover with the S4 way before this one, also the one they announced with the spectrum failed, doesn’t count. ;)

            Motorola invented the first cellphone, LG copied motorola, see? Doesn’t work that way.

      Sometimes I wonder if the LG G2 is a refreshed version of the S4 with Optimus UI or not xD. I won’t be surprised if the G2’s slogan will be: The Next Big Thing is already here!

        If we believe in the rumors so far, G2 won’t be a refreshed S4 but an actually cool and somewhat innovative device

          I agree and I hope LG does another nexus because I really like my LG nexus 4

          • MasterMuffin

            With that translucent navigation bar like in G2 please!

    While it is of my understanding it is indeed a rip-off, I think it might be more useful than Samsung’s implementation as it may offer more space to interact with the device (other than just viewing stuff).

  • YoungHermit

    They should call it the Q Cover…

  • frank

    Let’s see how Samsung likes having their ideas replicated so closely

    • Bryan Z

      lol… I know right.

    It just kinda confusing me with the regards of RAM are that of be packed for the alleged LG G2. Some article says it will be 3GB while others suggests its only 2GB. I don’t know now what is to believe?

    • kimLJT

      “alleged”, it might help you think ;-)

  • Fishtank

    Title made me think of this, but in a phone cover context…
