LG's Quick Cover protects your LG Optimus G Pro
If the Samsung Flip Covers had a doppleganger, it would be the new LG Quick Covers designed to cover the LG Optimus G Pro. Thanks to the strategically placed magnets, the Quick Cover turns off the phone while the cover is being closed, and turns it on when the cover is being lifted. The flap protects the 5.5 inch display on the handset and the back replaces the rear cover of the device which is just the way Sammy's Flip Cover works.

In case you were worried, the Quick Cover will not interfere with the NFC capabilities of the LG Optimus G Pro and wireless charging is not affected. What is affected is the weight of your wallet which will be lighter by 43,000 won ($40 USD) when you purchase one of the covers with a solid color from an online store or physical retail location in South Korea. Patterns will cost you 39,000 won ($36). Right now, this is just for South Korea and there is no word if or when we will see these roll out globally. It would help to have the phone launch globally first. The LG Optimus G Pro is expected to touch down in the U.S. during the second quarter which begins next month.

Time for Sammy to sue the crap out of LG...this is blatent copying the phone exactly looks like the Note 2 from the front and the covers look exactly the same as Sammy's.
Not that this phone is any kind of threat to the original Note as this is merely a phone and the Note....well its so much more!

I got over the phone and said maybe it wasn't intentional and maybe the similarities were a coincidence but this, this is just down right copying Samsung, there is no true visible difference between this and the smart cover, or the two phones

Now If Samsung was the one who copied LG we would see a bunch of Anti-Samsung fans raging on about how all Samsung does is copy other brands -_-, I'm tired of this BS, Humans are just plain Stupid, I should of been born as a dog or something, they seem to be reasonable

Samsung is really setting a standard for other manufacturers.
