LG’s Smartphone “Quick Cover” Rivals Apple’s Smart Cover For The iPad

Written by on March 7, 2013 in LG - No comments

LG’s new Quick Cover may not be the world;s most original idea when it comes to smartphones, but its a good idea nonetheless.

The consumer electronics accessories market shuttered when Apple debuted the “Smart Cover” for the iPad. The notion that Apple had engineered a proprietary folio cover and multi-position stand for the iPad led many to believe that Cupertino had effectively killed the iPad case market in one fell swoop.

Well, that didn’t happen, of course, as all of the top tablet case manufacturers have managed to create and market a wide range of successful iPad cases that rival the Smart Cover.

LG has taken the Smart Cover concept to the smartphone with their new “Quick Cover.”

According to Mashable:

The Quick Cover takes inspiration from Apple’s Smart Cover: The Optimus G Pro’s screen automatically turns on when the cover is lifted, but shuts down when the cover is placed on top.

What’s more, the cover doesn’t get in the way of the phone’s wireless charging or NFC capabilities. It comes in seven different designs, and costs $36 or $40, depending on whether you choose a patterned or solid color version.

The Quick Cover is not yet available in the U.S. — at present, it is only being sold in South Korea. But most likely LG is testing the accessory in South Korea first and will eventually unveil it in the U.S. and Europe at a later time.
