LG K7i handset gets rid of mosquitoes

Today's smartphones have plenty of useful features. And the LG K7i has one capability that you don't normally see available from a smartphone. It actually gets rid of pesky mosquitos. Available exclusively in India, the LG K7i might carry a howitzer when it comes to killing bugs dead, but when it comes to its specs, the handset is a low-end model with a 5-inch screen and a resolution of 720 x 1280 (HD).

Powering this high-tech can of Raid is an unknown chipset carrying a quad-core CPU, clocked at 1.4GHz. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. Those seeking additional storage can access the 256GB capacity microSD slot. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 8MP, while the 5MP front-facing shooter handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 2500mAh removable (!) battery. There is support for NFC and a 3.5mm headphone jack is on board. The LG K7i also supports dual SIM dual standby, and the unit measures 8.1mm thick. It also tips the scales at 138 grams. The phone is available in brown only, priced at 7,990 Rs. That works out to $121.38 USD at current exchange rates.

Thanks to a technology called Mosquito Away that was once found in LG Air Conditioners and Televisions, the LG K7i prevents you from getting all bitten up when the summer months come around. Mosquito Away is based on ultrasound waves that insects can't stand. It drives them away. Meanwhile, it is odorless and silent, and keeps your arms and legs from being the main dish at the next mosquito buffet.

Before I dove into the page, India and Africa was the first thing that came to mind after reading the headline. Not disappointed.

This reminds me of the early days of Android, there was an app I had on my gingerbread phone that was supposed to keep mosquitos away but I don't think it actually did anything.

I've tried that kind of app, and my dog react to it.. So I'm sure it actually did something (but probably not enough to drive bug away..) but most of those apps is likely malware, stay away from it, lol..

They should use the "mosquito killer" marketing slogan in their ads. It should sell.
