“Knock allows users to turn the smartphone on and off by tapping twice on the display. After G2 got, the next device to ship with this capability was the LG G Pad 8.3 followed by the G Flex curved smartphone,” it said.

“The reaction of audiences was apparently so positive that a version for the L Series II was developed to reach as many customers as possible,” it added.

The site said Knock will be included in a Maintenance Release upgrade that will roll out starting January.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics’ Mobile Communications Company, said Knock is “a great example of what happens when you marry the latest in mobile technology with consumer-centric insights.”

Most mobile phone companies, including LG and Olive, import handset for the Indian market. Kwon said that the industry will see a shift towards smartphones next year and companies not present in the higher-end category may have to e…………… continues on TMCnet
