LG doesn't care about the cloak and dagger secrecy that usually accompanies smartphone launches. The company has officially launched the new Quick Window case for its upcoming LG G2 flagship handset.

Expected to arrive at the same time as LG's flagship handset, the colorful accessory will be available in seven shades: black, white, pink, purple, blue, mint, and yellow.

Much like Samsung's S-View Flip Cover, the Quick Window case has a cut-out window to provide at-a-glance information such as the clock, weather, incoming calls, and messages.

To activate the the interactive Quick Window interface, one simply swipes a finger across the panel.

LG hasn't announced pricing for the G2 case, but we'll get that as the phone's sale date arrives. Although the G2 is rumored to arrive starting in late August, the United States may not see the phone until September.

LG will formally introduce the G2 at a press event in New York on August 7. Be sure to follow along with CNET's initial reactions and early analysis.
