“The phone is powered by the same ‘mosquito away technology’ that is available in some of our televisions and ACs. We will see the kind of response we get to this device and decide if we will extend it to other smartphones as well,” LG Electronics India Chief Marketing Officer Amit Gujral said.
The technology uses an ultrasonic frequency that is safe for humans but keeps mosquitoes away, he explained. “It covers a radius of about one metre. No harmful radiations are emitted,” he said.
Priced at Rs 7,990, the device features a 5-inch display, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, 8MP rear and 5MP front camera and 2500 mAh battery.
