When LG took the wraps off of the G Pro 2 earlier this year, it also introduced something called Knock Code. The new feature is basically an evolution of KnockOn, a double-tap to wake feature that debuted with the G2 last year. Knock Code takes that tap-to-wake action and upgrades it to allow users to set an unlock pattern made up of 2 to 8 taps. Soon more LG users will be able to tap their phone to unlock it, because LG has announced that it plans to push Knock Code to several other phones.
LG says that the G2, G2 mini, G Flex, F Series and L Series III devices will all be updated with to support Knock Code. The updates are slated to begin rolling out in April, and it’s expected that the G2 and G Flex will be the first 2 devices to be upgraded.
Not only does Knock Code add a layer of security to a device, but it’s also just cool to be able to unlock your phone by tapping a pattern on it, so it’s great to hear that LG is planning to push the feature to so many other products. Best of all is that the updates will start going out next month, meaning that it won’t be long before G2 and G Flex owners have a new goodie to play with. Until then, you can check out a demo of Knock Code on a G Pro 2 below.
