LG announced that its G2
and G Flex
smartphones will both receive a software update starting next month. The update will bring the Knock Code screen unlocking feature to the two handsets, first to users in select countries - so it won't be rolled out to everyone at the same time.
Knock Code is an enhancement of the older KnockOn, and it debuted last month on LG’s G Pro 2
. According to the company, more than 50% of participants in a survey selected Knock Code as “the most anticipated feature” of the new G Pro. You can see a video demo of Knock Code here
Apart from coming pre-loaded on the G Pro 2, and reaching the G2 and G Flex next month, Knock Code is also among the features of some lower-end LG handsets that were announced recently, including the G2 Mini, F90, F70, L90, L70 and L40.
“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,” declared said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
