At the Mobile World Congress 2014 last month, LG stated that the Knock Code will be a key characteristic in future LG devices. Now LG is all set to update a slew of its devices with the same. The Knock Code feature will be made available via a means of a firmware update beginning in April. LG G2 and G Flex will be the first devices to get the Knock Code support.
LG's Knock Code innovation is pretty useful in waking up and unlocking the device all the time and gives you more options than the regular passwords for better and added security. With Knock Code, the smartphone is divided into four concealed quadrants.
You can tap or "Knock" at any place from two to eight times in the quadrants in a particular pattern to wake up the device. It gets over 80,000 patterns to unlock the device and you do get a pretty high level of security.
"LG engineers placed a great amount of emphasis on providing users with exceptional security and convenience when developing Knock Code. Making Knock Code accessible to a wider audience is consistent with our direction to differentiate LG mobile devices on the basis of user experience," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
The region specific roll out of the device will be detailed soon by the company and will inform the users in a particular area about the update then.
