LG brings “Knock” feature to its affordable L Series II smartphones

LG Knock

LG is bringing the Knock feature (formerly known as KnockON) to its affordable L Series II smartphones. Initially introduced in the company’s flagship G2 device, the feature will be included in the forthcoming Maintenance Release upgrade, rolling out starting from January 2014.

Knock allows users to turn the smartphone on and off by tapping twice on the display. After G2 got, the next device to ship with this capability was the LG G Pad 8.3 followed by the G Flex curved smartphone. The reaction of audiences was apparently so positive that a version for the L Series II was developed to reach as many customers as possible.

“Knock is distinctively an LG UX and a great example of what happens when you marry the latest in mobile technology with consumer-centric insights,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics’ Mobile Communications Company, “No one ever thought that a power button needed to be improved until our engineers wondered why they couldn’t turn the entire screen into a power button.”

We kinda like the Knock feature, what do you think about it?

    I guess I’ll start. Sucks for LG as they’ll most likely be sued by Apple over this. Not that Apple has anything like this, but they’ll finda way to say they actually invented this technology and use it as their own.
