One of the software features that LG touted in its announcement of the G Pro 2 is Knock Code, an evolution of its KnockOn feature that allows users to double-tap a device's screen to wake it from sleep. Knock Code takes the feature a step further by letting the user set a pattern consisting of two to eight taps that can be used to power on the phone's display.
LG recently shared some photos and video from its G Pro 2 Experience Zone, which was a sort of early launch party for the new handset held before its full-on release, and the company included a brief video showing Knock Code in action. The clip shows a person tapping on the G Pro 2's display four times in a square pattern to wake it from sleep. The first time that the code is entered, the user taps directly in the middle of the G Pro 2's screen, but the second time around the taps are made in the lower left corner of the display.
KnockOn is a pretty neat feature that could be a quicker way to wake a phone from sleep than having to reach for the lock key and then swiping the screen. Knock Code adds a level of personalization and security to that functionality, giving users thousands of different tap combinations to choose from. There's no word on when or if LG will port Knock Code to other devices like the G2, but here's to hoping that it does. Until we hear more, you can check out the Knock Code video demo below.
