LG to add ‘Knock’ feature to all L Series II and key future devices

LG KnockThe LG G2 was the first LG device to come with a new feature called KnockON. It allowed a user to tap the display twice in quick succession to wake the smartphone up. The feature was also included on a number of devices that followed the LG G2, including the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet and the LG G Flex smartphone.

LG today announced that Knock as this feature will now be called will be included on all “the company’s key mobile devices in the future.” It will also make its way onto the L Series II smartphone line through a global Maintenance Release upgrade. The move is in response to a very positive reaction from LG’s customers.

“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.”

LG will begin deploying its LG Knock feature to its L Series II smartphones in January. As usual, specific rollout schedule details will vary by market and carrier.
