South Korean consumer electronics major LG, on Thursday, unveiled the official G5 smart flip-case, dubbed as Quick Cover, ahead of the flagship smartphone launch. 

"Known as a company ahead of the times, LG took this characterization to heart by revealing the existence of the accessory before the actual product (LG G5)," said the company in a press release.

LG's Quick Cover case is actually not a new accessory as it was first made available to LG K10 a few weeks ago.

It comes with semi-transparent mesh with glossy metallic finish and is touch-enabled so that users can take/dismiss calls or control alarm settings directly from the cover-case without opening it. The cover-case also features a hollow space at the top so that users can take a peek on G5's "Always On" display segment to read time, date and notifications.
