The Korean manufacturer LG has introduced a new K-series smartphone – K7i – in India. The new smartphone packs an interesting new feature called ‘Mosquito away,’ which uses Ultrasonic waves to repel the mosquitoes.
According to LG, the Mosquito away tech is completely safe and harmless to humans. It has been found to repel 72% of the Anopheles Gambiae mosquitoes (the malaria causing mosquitoes) in clinical trials.
The phone has been priced at INR 7,990 and will be available in the coming days. The company is bundling both normal back cover and the Mosquito away back covers in the box, so the consumers can have the normal back cover on their phone when they don’t need to repel mosquitoes.
LG K7i is not the first device from the company to come with ‘Mosquito away’ feature, in fact LG had earlier launched TVs with the same technology.
