LG Announces Optimus G Pro Quick Cover With Magnet Action

Advertisement

LG dropped the Optimus G Pro upon the world at this year’s Mobile World Congress and it has a rather narrow window — at least until the end of August, when IFA happens — to try and steal the show from the already established Samsung Galaxy Note II phablet. We’ve taken a close look at the LG device and we’ve also stacked it up against its direct competitor while we covered MWC this year.

While the Samsung Galaxy Note II has the official Flip Cover, the LG Optimus G Pro has just received its “Quick Cover”. However, compared to Samsung’s offering, LG has adopted the “Apple-like” approach, fitting the Quick Cover with a magnet-based system that automatically wakes the display upon flipping it open and turns it off while closing it.

The cover also comes with NFC so you won’t lose that functionality once you apply it and you have options for  black, pink blossom, crystal blue, sensation lime, and platinum white flavors. It will be available later this month going for 39,000-43,000 won (around $35-$40).
