The world's deadliest creature is not what you might usually expect. It's not a Shark trying to strangle surfers in sea, certainly not Cobra in the woods and not even a Black Tarantula known to give people the creeps even in their dreams. You might not believe us and would certainly crosscheck with Google but the most number of deaths caused by an animal or any creature on the plant is Mosquitoes.
Yes, you heard it right. Mosquitoes cause the most harm to humans and as per WHO reports, they are responsible for over 7,25,000 human deaths per year. The number is almost double than the deaths caused by humans and almost 15 times higher than the deaths caused by snakes per year. The capital of India, New Delhi alone recorded 68,000 positive blood samples for the dengue virus in city's hospitals.
The situation is alarming and the conventional solutions to prevent such wide spread chaos have been proved to be ineffective and even harmful for human health. The type of mosquito's repellents we have in markets such as coils, creams, plug-ins are said to cause headaches, coughs, sore throats, nausea and dizziness. Moreover, long-term exposure to the chemicals released by such repellents often cause side-effects including allergies, asthma as well as respiratory irritation.
The need of the hour is some sort of solution that can keep the mosquitoes at bay without effecting human's general health. One such solution can be Sound Wave Technology. Ultrasonic frequencies produced by electronic devices can disable mosquito's power and are safe to humans' health as they don't emit any harmful radiations. The technology can be utilized with some efforts and can be turned into a mainstream product.
That said, LG has achieved the feat and has introduced the world's first phone with Mosquito Away technology. Priced at just Rs. 7,990, the LG K7i is an affordable Android smartphone that can keep you safe from being the main dish at the next mosquito buffet. This truly unique product can be described as yet another technological milestone that sets a new benchmark to ensure the health of the Indian consumers with the kind of technology it packs in. LG K7i comes with one major capability that you don't normally find in any other smartphone in the market. Let's find out how LG aims to change the market dynamics with this new smartphone.
LG K7i: Mosquito Away Phone
LG is not new to this game as the company has already introduced products with such technology in past with its Air Conditioners and Televisions. Based on important health insights, the company has now introduced K7i smartphone equipped with the same technology.

With the launch, the company is bringing the Mosquito Away technology closer to the consumers in the form of a mobile device which can be an integral part of their daily lives. As such, LG K7i has been designed to keep mosquitoes at bay while keeping you safe when you're talking to your dear ones. The smartphone is basically an ultra-sonic device that is equipped with the innovative technology that once activated disables mosquito's power to bite and transfer harmful virus to your body.
