LG To Bring Knock Code Feature To Low, Mid Range Devices

LG aims to recapture its 3rd place ranking in worldwide sales of mobile devices by bringing its Knock Code feature to its lower end devices.  Knock Code is an improvement over the company’s KnockOn feature which was revealed last fall on the LG G2. KnockOn allowed a user to double tap on the display of the device to wake it or put it to sleep. This latest update allows anyone to knock on the phone in a previously set pattern to unlock it.

As of the third quarter of 2013 Huawei is the world’s largest smartphone maker dethroning LG. LG however believes that it can bounce back and in order for them to do this is to bring more value to their low to mid range devices. The company is banking on its Knock Code feature to do this. LG President Park Jong-Seok says that “We will become global No. 3 with differentiated values, such as sales, quantity and brand value (supported by comprehensive factors).”

LG says that its Knock Code security lock is a better way to secure a device compared to other means. This is because the code is entered on a blank screen and people nearby won’t be able to see ehat ou are doing.

This feature is also more convenient since it turns on and unlocks a device simultaneously. “Thanks to LG’s intelligent algorithm and advanced hardware, the knock pattern can be entered on any area of the screen — whether the display is turned on or off — using anywhere from two to eight taps.”

Over at the MWC 14 event LG revealed its upcoming devices that will be sporting this new security feature.
