LG is cracking on with its usual practice of seeding information about upcoming products ahead of the actual event.

Like it does each year with IFA and CES, LG is drip feeding images and details about the main product it plans to show at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which starts in just over a week's time.

This time it has revealed more about the LG G5 flagship smartphone, even sending out press pictures of the device hidden behind an all-new touch-enabled Quick Cover case.

We already found out that the LG G5 will have an "always-on" display yesterday, and now it seems it will work in tandem with the Quick Cover, so you can take calls, check the time, date or notifications, or control alarm settings without opening it or turning the phone on.

The Quick Cover incorporates a "unique film" with a glossy metallic finish, so it won't be a poor second cousin to the design of the phone itself.

Of course, we're still awaiting official specifications details and pictures of the handset. But given LG's marketing plan of revealing all in dribs and drabs before the event even starts, what's the betting that we'll get those sooner rather than later?
