LG on Wednesday launched a new K-Series smartphone as it had announced earlier this week. The company launched the LG K7i, a smartphone with ‘Mosquito Away’ technology. The LG K7i comes with an additional rear cover bundled in the box that can be placed on the phone when required. It features a speaker that produces ultrasonic frequencies said to drive mosquitoes away. The smartphone is otherwise a budget offering, and runs Android Marshmallow. The LG K7i was launched at the side-lines of Day 1 of the India Mobile Congress, being held in New Delhi.

Talking of price, the LG K7i goes for Rs. 7,900 in India, which when converted to Nigerian Naira would be around #40,000. Commenting on the launch, Amit Gujral, Chief Marketing Officer, LG Electronics India, said “LG has always been at the forefront of unique innovations. With this launch, LG is bringing the mosquito away technology closer to the consumers in the form of a mobile device which can be an integral part of their daily lives.” Though the company hasn’t detailed any launch offer for the Smartphone but they will be available across retail outlets in India.
SPECS AND FEATURES
the highlight feature of the LG K7i is its Mosquito Away technology, which uses 30KHz ultrasonic sound waves – said to be harmless to humans – to drive away mosquitoes.
The technology, which is enabled by the speaker on the additional rear cover, does not require any refills, LG adds. The smartphone can be placed on a stand when the mosquito repellent is activated, as seen below. The dual-SIM smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It sports a 5-inch OnCell display, and is powered by an unspecified quad core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.
