It's going to be a good year, at least for those who own LG's L series 2 phones. Early next year LG will include Knock feature in all of its key handset models. Starting with LG L series 2 phones, the company will release global maintenance software update starting in January 2014.
Originally, the Knock feature first made its debut on LG G2, a big ticket phone by all means. Later the makers behind LG G Flex ported the same feature on an 8-inch tablet, the G Pad 8.3, followed by the company's first flexible phone.
"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,", "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." said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics' Mobile Communications Company
Basically, the Knock feature allows users to switch on and off their phones, simply by knocking twice on the display. The feature proved insanely popular on the LG G2, considering the phone does not have a power button on the front side. Now the company is all set to introduce the same feature for its mid range L series II phones.
LG's exclusive 'Knock' feature was first introduced when the company released G2, back in August this year. For the first time an Android powered phone, the G2, got an access to use the feature. But, originally, a similar attempt was first made out, when the Finnish giant Nokia introduced N9 smartphone in 2011. Then, the whole button less thing was seen as a crazy innovation.
