LG recently launched a Smart TV with Mosquito Away feature, and today, the company is bringing the same technology to smartphones. At the ongoing Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) in New Delhi, LG has launched a new smartphone dubbed LG K7i with Mosquito Away feature.
The LG K7i is priced at Rs. 7,990 and it's a variant of the LG K8 (2017) launched last month in India. Besides the Mosquito Away feature, the LG K7i has similar specifications of the LG K8 (2017). LG has placed the mosquito repellent hardware at the back of the smartphone. The hardware produces ultrasonic sound waves, which drives away with mosquitoes.
Coming back to the specifications of the LG K7i, it sports a 5-inch HD IPS display, much like several other smartphones in the similar price range. Internally, the smartphone is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, which is clubbed with a 2GB RAM module. The smartphone has 16GB of internal storage, and the storage can be expanded further with a microSD card.
This budget smartphone comes loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat with LG UX on top, and it is backed by a 2500mAh battery. Several other smartphones in the similar price range offer a bigger battery. For example, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 offers a 4100mAh battery. LG Also added a fingerprint sensor to the back of the phone.
Optics wise, the LG K7i comes with an 8MP rear camera with an LED flash support. Frontal, the device has a 5MP shooter, which sadly doesn't come with any LED flashlight support.
Connectivity options in the device include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port. LG also included NFC support in the smartphone.
LG also confirmed that the K7i is made for the Indian market. The device costs Rs. 7,990 and will be available in the offline stores in coming days.
