LG Announced A Phone That Repels Mosquitoes Using Ultrasound



This is when technology gets a little weird but sounds practical at the same time. LG announced the K7i smartphone that comes with unique new technology. The new tech has the ability to repel mosquitoes. You heard that right! Mosquitoes. The phone integrates an ultrasound mosquito repeller in its back hump and we have seen this technology in LG's home appliances before. 

Previously, it was included in products such as Air Conditioners and TVs, however, the K7i smartphone can do the same job as well. The K7i phone is actually LG's existing midrange K7 Android smartphone, with the speaker as a removable back case.
