LG Optimus G Pro to get updated with some LG G2 features, and a new QuickWindows case
Amid rumors about a May launch of the LG G Pro 2, a published report out of Italy reveals that the LG Optimus G Pro, the former Android flagship from the Korean OEM, is going to be receiving an update. The update will bring some features of the current flagship model, the LG G2, to the older model. One of the features coming over is KnockOn, which allows you to unlock and lock your phone with a double tap to the screen.

In addition, there will be a QuickWindows case that offers the same capabilities as the QuickWindows accessory for the LG G2. According to the report, there is also the possibility that the case will allow the LG Optimus G Pro to reveal a "dedicated interface' through its opening, accessible without having to open the case.

The report also goes on to add that the update is expected to take place only in Korea for now, but we wouldn't be surprised to see it eventually migrate to other markets including the U.S.

Sooner or later, the KnockOn feature will remind us of LG.

Why isn't Samsung doing that?! I have a Galaxy Note 2 and there haven't been any new accessories by Samsung for it for a really long time!

Why would they put out new accessories for a device that's 15 months old? The G Pro is under a year old & most devices that are that old don't get new accessories.

I'm not huge fan of LG, but that notification light is pretty damn cool. And bravo LG, for supporting older models.

That's cool and all but why not 4.2 or 4.3 at least? Oh well.

Nice case, but is this an update to Android 4.3 or maybe 4.4?

I would hope so. The Optimus G and G Pro are still on 4.1.

Nice that LG is supporting their outdated models.
