LG has shared more information on the LG G5’s official touch-enabled phone cover, set to compliment the flagship mobile by offering ‘ultimate convenience’.

The LG G5 accessory has been designed to flaunt the highly anticipated gadget’s curves, allowing users to take calls and control alarm settings without having to open the case at all.

LG’s case features a unique film with a glossy metallic finish, which apparently enhances the look of the LG G5 and makes it even prettier. Of course, what you think of the case’s appearance is down to personal taste, but LG is still very keen to show it off.

A number of other unofficial LG G5 cases have been spotted on the Amazon marketplace recently, backing claims that the smartphone will feature a unique rear camera setup with LED flash and dual-camera lenses.

Just yesterday, it was confirmed that the upcoming LG G5 will feature an always-on display, offering up notification information to users without them having to grab their smartphone.

In terms of specs, we’re yet to hear any official word on what will keep the LG G5 ticking. Late last year, a leak spotted on Reddit suggested that the LG G5 would drop with a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, 3 GB of Ram and a 16 megapixel camera and 8 megapixel camera on the back. The same source mentioned an 8 megapixel front-facing shooter and a Snapdragon 820 processor.

The touch-enabled phone cover looks like a nice match for the LG G5, which is expected to be unveiled for the world to see at MWC 2016 in Barcelona on February 21.

Our fingers are crossed that the LG G5 lives up to the hype.
