LG announces QuickWindow flip cover for LG G2, forgets that the phone isn’t official yet

LG is not keeping the G2, its next Android flagship, a secret. The company even started announcing accessories for the phone, with photos and everything. Okay, it’s a flip cover so not much of the phone itself is visible, but LG could have waited a week until August 7 when the G2 will officially be unveiled.

Anyway, back to the accessory – it’s a flip cover with a window called QuickWindow that lets a small part of the screen show notification and controls from several apps (*cough*).

The QuickWindow UX is triggered by a swipe and shows the time (with several watch faces), but you can also check the weather, keep a timer app, set alarms, control the music player and view incoming calls and messages.

The QuickWindow flip cover for LG G2 will be available in seven colors – black, white, pink, purple, blue, mint and yellow – and will launch simultaneously with the phone.

We’ll be covering the G2 launch, so tune in for more details on the phone (which will pack a 5.2″ 1080p screen and a Snapdragon 800 chipset) and any other accessories (we might get a bunch of colorful back covers, if leaked images are to be believed).
