LG’s ‘Knock’ feature to be standard for future LG devices



LG has come a long way in making good and innovative features. Not only did they build the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, but their own range of devices has had many useful features. One of these, LG’s ‘Knock’ feature, has proved so popular, the Korean electronics giant has announced they will add it to the rest of their devices and all future devices.

LG’s ‘Knock’ feature to be added to ‘L’ Series:

In an announcement on their website, LG’s CEO said that their ‘Knock’ feature would be added to all existing ‘L’ series phones, via a maintenance update to be pushed out in January.

LG’s ‘Knock’ feature, previously known as ‘KnockOn’, was originally developed with the LG G2 because the power button was on the back of the device. LG’s ‘Knock’ feature meant that you tap the screen to turn the screen on and off and has been very popular with its users. It was so popular, that LG added it to their first return to the tablet market with the LG G Pad 8.3 and the G Flex, the first curved screen mobile phone.

LG’s ‘Knock’ feature to also be added to all future LG devices:

In the same announcement, not only did LG say they would be adding the ‘Knock’ feature to all previous devices, but they also said that it would be included as a feature on all future devices.

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.

What LG did not make clear was if they would keep the power button on the back of the device in future devices, or if they would move it to a more traditional position.
