LG Elec­tron­ics has said that it will take knockON to a new level with a one-step, easy-ac­cess power on and un­lock­ing so­lu­tion in­stalled in its smart­phones.

With con­sumer re­search show­ing that smart­phone own­ers un­lock and check their de­vices more than 100 times a day, LG said in­spired to take KnockON to a new level with a one-step, easy-ac­cess power on and un­lock­ing so­lu­tion.

The com­pany said in a state­ment that start­ing with the G Pro 2, other key LG smart­phone mod­els in­tro­duced from 2014 will come with Knock Code™, an up­graded ver­sion of the highly ac­claimed KnockON UX fea­ture. “Since Knock Code™ wakes and un­locks the phone si­mul­ta­ne­ously; it pro­vides more con­ve­nience and greater se­cu­rity over con­ven­tional pass­word and pat­tern-based se­cu­rity op­tions. And be­cause Knock Code™ can be used any­where on the dis­play, it’s pos­si­bly to ac­cess one’s phone with­out even look­ing. “In Knock Code™, the smart­phone dis­play is di­vided into four in­vis­i­ble quad­rants. The user taps or “knocks” any­where from two to eight times in the quad­rants in a spe­cific se­quence. With more than 80,000 pos­si­ble com­bi­na­tions and no fin­ger­print streaks, Knock Code™ of­fers a greater level of se­cu­rity. Also, be­cause Knock Code™ can be im­ple­mented any­where on the screen in any size with­out hav­ing to view the screen, there’snochance­of­pass­wordtheft.Knock­Code™will al­sobe­of­feredasafirmware­up­grade­for­some­ofLG’s pre­vi­ously re­leased smart­phone mod­els, in­clud­ing LG’s flag­ship G Se­ries”, the state­ment said.

LG made some bold and orig­i­nal de­sign moves in 2013, moves which have paid off both in terms of brand per­cep­tion and in­no­va­tive recog­ni­tion.
