LG have rather peculiarly announced a case for a phone that they haven’t yet announced. Which gives them less to talk about on Tuesday.
So it appears to be similar to other flip cases, apart from the fact it’s circular. LG reckon you don’t need to actually open the case. Not so sure about that one myself.
The QuickCircle case will come in five eye-catching colors: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Aqua Mint, Indian Pink. No green or orange though, I’m sad now.
The case does have extra functionality though. I’m particularly impressed by them releasing an SDK for the case.
Recently evleaks posted an image showing some images of various modes that the case uses.
So all in all it looks like there isn’t much left for LG to announce next week. Should I even bother going to the event? Either way watch this space on Tuesday night to see if they announce anything not already mentioned.
LG have posted a video on their YouTube channel showing some of the features and I have to say it looks quite useful.
SEOUL, May 22, 2014 — When LG Electronics (LG) officially unveils the long awaited LG G3 next week, it will also introduce another product which was designed to make the G3 infinitely more useful, the QuickCircleTM Case. The folder-style case lets users enjoy various features of their G3 without ever having to open the cover. 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.
Wireless charging compatible with the Qi interface standard is also possible with the QuickCircleTM Case, adding more convenience and portability. A software development kit (SDK) will be available next month to allow developers to customize their LG G3 smartphones to perform customized functions with the QuickCircleTM Case.
“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.”
