LG shows off Quick Cover case for LG G5, confirms metal build for the new flagship

Even though the LG G5 won't be unveiled until February 21st, the manufacturer has introduced the Quick Cover case that it will sell for its new flagship phone. The LG G5 Quick Cover case borrows generously from the one produced for the LG K10, which allows users to take calls without opening the case. The LG G5 Quick Cover does respond to touch, letting you set the alarm without having to open it.

LG has already teased the phone's always on feature, and does so again by showing the display of the LG G5 as viewed through the cutout on the front of the case. The picture shows the time, date and four notification icons underneath. LG also reveals that the LG G5 will have a metallic build. In its press release today, the company points out that the Quick Cover sports a unique film and a glossy metallic finish that complements the LG G5. The LG G4 and LG G3 were both made with a plastic build.

Earlier today, we passed along the results of a trip made through the Geekbench benchmark test by the LG G5. The test confirmed that the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of RAM inside, and Android 6.0.1 pre-installed.
