LG K7i is A Smartphone That Makes Mosquito Go Away (Yes, You Heard it right)

Among all the edges Android has over iOS, flexibility is one of the most important, sure, the new iPhone X may come with Wireless Charging and a high screen to body ratio, we have seen some Android phone that are so crazy in design that it becomes their USP. Samsung’s recent Android Flip phones and Yota’s dual-screen smartphone comes to mind. And now, you can add one more to the mix.

LG recently launched a new phone called LG7Ki that features a “Mosquito Away” technology alongside with normal guts of an entry-level smartphone.

The feature uses the phone’s big hump at the bottom back to emit ultrasound waves that LG Claims will keep the mosquitos away. I am a bit skeptical about its effectiveness, but LG seems confidant considering the company has been adding this feature to its TVs and ACs in past years. Still, BBC has a report that says these ultrasound devices “have no effect on preventing mosquito bites” and “should not be recommended or used.”

Apart from that, the phone is a pretty much entry-level smartphone with a 720p 5-inch display, 2GB RAM, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and an 8MP camera on the back and 5MP camera on the front. The internal storage is 16GB that can be extended to 156 GB with a microSD card

The phone will run on Android 6.0 and it will cost $121 or Rs 7,990 in India. Considering the price of the phone and the fact that it runs on a two-year-old software, LG is definitely expecting on the mosquito related features to make it stand out instead of phone’s performance.
