LG K7i "Mosquito Away" Android smartphone hits India
In some areas of the world, mosquitoes are a serious problem and, unfortunately, the citizens of many Indian states have to face these annoying insects. The new LG K7i "Mosquito Away" Android smartphone comes to help these people in their fight without the use of toxic substances or any harmful radiation. Thanks to an ultrasound generator integrated into the phone's back cover, the LG K7i is supposed to keep mosquitoes away.
Sadly, the technical specs of the LG K7i are not impressive at all, placing this handset in the low-end sector of the market. This handset carries the model number LGX230I, so it is closely related to the LG K4 (2017). It has an unspecified 1.1 GHz quad-core processor under the hood, most likely the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 as its sibling, next to 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The 5-inch display has a modest resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels, while the cameras provide 5 MP (front) and 8 MP (back). At last, there is a 2,500 mAh battery that should provide a good autonomy, but nothing out of this world, especially when using the "Mosquito Away" cover.
To enjoy a good night's sleep, the users of the LG K7i should replace the normal back cover with the "Mosquito Away" cover, place the handset in the "Mosquito Away" stand, and then enjoy the protection they provide. According to LG, the clinical trials concluded that this handset can repel about 72 percent of the incoming mosquitoes. However, its efficiency depends on a lot of variables, such as temperature, humidity, number of mosquitoes, and so on.
The LG K7i (LGX230I) has a price tag of INR₹7,990 (about US$120) and only comes in brown. It can only be acquired in India for the time being, but those interested in such a handset might try one of the many apps available in Google Play that promise to keep insects at bay.
