Strangely, LG just released a preview video (above) and some information on the upcoming G3 case called the Quick Circle, which we’ve seen quite a bit of leaks around already. The case has a circle opening similar to the way the HTC M8 or Samsung Galaxy S4 and 5 have special cases that give quick looks to important information. The Quick Circle looks a little bit more robust however.
Users can check the time, place calls, send text messages, take photos, listen to music or get an update of their health directly from the circular window.
More stylish than traditional rectangular-windowed smartphone cases, LG’s QuickCircleTM Case comes in five eye-catching colors: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Aqua Mint, Indian Pink. The case is designed to protect the side edges of the G3 and provide the best “grip-ability” while maintaining the G3’s original sleek lines. To accentuate the beauty of its circular design language, Smart Lighting emits a soft, white, circular glow inside the window whenever the case is opened/closed or a call/text message is received.
“The smartphone ecosystem is constantly evolving ― no longer are cases just for protection from the elements and bumps and drops,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “They’re the perfect accessory to build in extra features that add more value to a mobile device. With QuickCircle Case, we’ve exceeded the baseline by making it customizable to better fit users’ needs.”
We’ll be on hand next week when LG announces the G3, though frankly, there appear to be few surprises left.
