by Henry Emmanuel

Ever wondered what the world’s deadliest animal is? Nope it isn’t lion, neither is it an elephant nor snakes, it’s mosquito. I know this might seem impossible, that something so miniscule could be more dangerous than sharks and humans. But trust me, mosquitoes kills more human than human murderers do. According to world health organisation, mosquito bites results in the death of more than 725,000 people in a year and most times, it “incapacitate” its victims for days. The majority of this deaths are due to malaria which is mostly transmitted my anopheles mosquitoes​. Drugs have been invented to remedy the situation and scientists are producing ultrasonic technology to help keep mosquitoes at bay.

Having known how ubiquitous and rampant mosquitoes are in most countries especially in India, LG – the company known widely for its electronic products have decided to make a couple of moves in keeping​ mosquitoes at bay and hence they have gone technologically by launching the LG K7i which came out to become the world’s first mosquito repellent Android phone. LG K7i (LGX230I) packs a weight of 154g and 5.0 inch display size. The device runs on Android 6.0 marshmallow and offers 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and SD card upto 256GB. Coupled with a 5MP selfie camera that supports gesture shot. Here’s a quick highlights of LG K7i features.

One of the robust and perhaps the most unique feature the LG K7i offers is its ability to repel mosquitoes by using an ultrasonic technology.
