You probably have seen HotKnot on your Infinix smartphone and have wondered what it is and what you can possible do with it.
Well HotKnot is a great feature that is found mostly on MTK devices such as Infinix phones which can be very useful if you know what it is and how to use it. So what is HotKnot?
Let’s find out…
Hotknot was developed in 2013 by a Chinese touchscreen designer Goodix, the brain behind the invisible Finger Print Detection. The technology allows the capacities touchscreens of smartphones to interact – a feature that can be used for quick data transfer/sharing, in a similar way to NFC.
When the two screens are near each other, their physics are used in such a way that allows one of them to act as a transmitter and the other one as a receiver.
What Can I Do With HotKnot Technology?
You can use HotKnot to…
- Transfer and exchange photos and videos.
- Sharing contact data: web addresses, phone contacts, social media contacts, etc.
- Sharing application data.
- Facilitate mobile payments.
- Exchange game moves.
- Enable Bluetooth pairing, Wi-Fi connectivity and other services.
How Can I Use HotKnot Technology on my Phone?
To enable HotKnot on your smartphone, go to Settings>>HotKnot.
A question will appear on the screen “Allow data exchange when the screen touches another device?”. Once you toggle it on, HotKnot will be enabled and once you have your phone’s screen close to another device’s screen, you will be able to perform data exchange.
Note: In order for the technology to work, the two phones need to come with HotKnot technology and be in close proximity to each other (within at least one centimeter).
Now that you know what HotKnot is and how to use it, do you think that it is a useful feature? Maybe you should try it out.
