LG improves upon last years QuickWindow case with a circle and better functionality

Much like its predecessor, the G2, LG's new top-of-the-line G3 comes with a special, windowed case. This time out they're calling it the QuickCircle and functionality is certainly improved in this years model. As the name implies, the window this time around has become a circle, and it's a circle that has its uses.

As before you get a variety of different clock faces to display when you close the case, some analog, some digital, and there's still the option to have the current weather conditions, too. You can still activate the window by double-tapping on the display and a swipe across in this years model opens up a whole host of things to do.

App support is increased to include not only the music player but also to your Email, Phone and Camera, and even a pedometer. All display neatly within the circular window, offering little snapshots of important information and controls. We didn't get chance to snap any pictures and see how they may or may not be cropped, sadly.

Aside from what happens within the window, it's basically a flip case to keep your shiny new G3 safe and sound. Oh, and when you close the front, the ring around the window flashes bright white momentarily. Très cool. It also looks to be available in all the same colors as the phones, and a few more besides. We'll no doubt see much more of this when they start getting into peoples hands, but for now check out a quick photo gallery below.
