It comes with a special cover called Mosquito Away Cover which can be snapped on to the smartphone. It features a speaker that generates ultra sonic sound to repel mosquitoes.

The LG K7i also comes with a Mosquito Away Stand on which you can put the smartphone when are making use of the Mosquito Away technology to get rid of mosquitoes around you. The Mosquito Away technology is “invisible and odorless” as it relies on ultra-sonic sound instead of emitting any light or chemicals.
LG says that it Mosquito Away is totally safe to use as no harmful chemicals were used. Moreover, as this technology doesn’t make use of any chemicals, you don’t have to go through the hassles of changing the refill every month. Just snap on that special Mosquito Away cover and you are all set.
Well, while all that sounds so good, the LG K7i itself is a low-end smartphone. It is powered by an unspecified quad-core processor which is coupled with 2 GB RAM. It has a 5-inch FWVGA on-cell display and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
For photography, you get an 8 MP camera at the back and a 5 MP camera on the front. To save the photos and videos take with these cameras, you have 16 GB of internal storage at your disposal. However, you expand the storage via microSD card if you want.
The LG K7i supports 4G VoLTE, and, keeping this entire package up and running is a 2500 mAh battery which is removable.

We at LG want to deliver innovation at its best for our customers and we hope that this product will be beneficial for them. Earlier we have launched Mosquito Away AC & TV, the response for this technology has been extremely positive and I am confident K7i too will be appreciated by consumers.” said Mr. Kim Ki Wan, Managing Director, LG Electronics India.
