Well that’s another way to use your smartphone, don’t you think? LG never ceases to impress us as far as innovation is concerned and with their brand new LG K7i model, they surely made an impression with its “mosquito away” technology.
The device was just unveiled in India with this rather unique selling point: a Mosquito Away technology, that uses ultrasonic noise (emitted from a special speaker placed on the back) that will keep mosquitoes away from you! The “sound” is inaudible to humans, so you can safely use the phone, or place it on the special Mosquito Away stand, when you’re outside in the countryside to protect yourself from mosquito bites.
If however you don’t want to use this feature, you can always swap the back cover and use a normal one 😉 In case you’re interested, the LG K7i packs a 5-inch 854x480p touch screen, along with a 1.1 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM functionality, an 8 MP main camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie snapper, a fingerprint sensor, and a 2,500 mAh battery.
It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and I don’t think you will be getting any significant firmware updates. The K7i is now sold for INR 7,990, which at the current exchange rates means $121 or €103.
