LG Selling Phone That'll Protect Against Mosquitoes

LG has a new handset that comes with an unusual feature: mosquito repellent capabilities. The K7i smartphone includes an ultrasound anti-mosquito system on its rear that can ward off mosquitoes using ultrasonic sound waves that are inaudible to humans.

This technology is already present in other LG products, including TVs and some home appliances. Though it's the first time LG has offered the tech with a handset.

Technically the K7i is just the regular K7. Yet it comes with a removable back case offering the mosquito repellent properties. LG is including a regular flat back with the device so it can fit more easily into your pocket.

The K7i is entering the Indian market for Rs. 7,990.
