LG introduced the K7 smartphone in India earlier this year, and now the company has added some interesting features specifically for visually challenged users. The LG K7 was one of the first smartphones to flag off the company’s K-series, and the LG K7 LTE variant was also the first to be manufactured in India.
The LG K7 price remains unchanged at Rs. 9,500, but the company has updated the smartphone with new features like screen reading software (Talk back), and Text to Screen (TTS) language pack support. It will also come with in-built apps like Cozy Daisy Book Reader App (with three books preloaded), Voice Reader App, eReader App, GPS Essential App, Kota Magnifier App, and Play Magazine app.
The LG K7 smartphone will have call and text voice reading enabled by default, and will also have two word books and two PDF books preloaded. The company notes that a batch of these updated LG K7 units were distributed to differently abled people at Samajik Adhikarita Shivir in Gujarat, as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday celebrations over the weekend.
“We are happy and extremely proud to make the smartphone more relevant for differently abled users, we have included special features to the K7. We hope that by doing this, we will be able to make a small difference to someone’s life and spread happiness.” Kim Ki-Wan, Managing Director, LG India said in a statement.
As for the technical specifications, they remain the same. The LG K7 features a 5-inch FWVGA (480×854 pixels) resolution display. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, and packs a 1.1GHz quad-core SoC coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.
