LG India has been announced to launch a unique smartphone in India, which keeps away Mosquito from us. LG K7i comes with innovative ‘Mosquito away’ technology priced at Rs 7,990, targeted at the mass budget segment. The announcement was made during the ongoing India Mobile Congress in Delhi by the LG. The LG K7i comes with a new rear cover that can be popped onto the back of the device and can instantly turn it into a mosquito repellent.The smartphone is otherwise a budget offering and runs AndroidMarshmallow.
The Mosquito Away technology as LG calls it, uses ultrasonic sound (30,000 Hz or above) waves to irritate mosquitoes enough to abandon ship. This sound frequency is out of our normal range of hearing which is 20Hz-20,000Hz so you won’t hear the noise.

LG K7i Features
Although a budget smartphone, LG K7i’s highlight feature has to be the ‘Mosquito away’ technology which according to the company is safe and harmless for humans. The rear cover features a speaker that produces ultrasonic frequencies, which the company claims will drive away mosquitoes. Other than this feature, the device is a rather simple device with average specifications. The add-on rear cover gives the LG K7i ability to produce sounds at 30KHz which is harmful to mosquitoes but not humans. LG also point out that its proprietary technology is silent and odourless in nature. The company even provides a separate stand which can be used while the mosquito away feature is activated.
“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. The technology, which is enabled by the speaker on the additional rear cover, does not require any refills, LG adds.” – Amit Gujral, Chief Marketing Officer, LG Electronics India
