The IFA 2020 event is going to start from September 3 in Berlin amid the Coronavirus pandemic.  During this two day event, LG is going to bring a very special device.  LG will launch Wearable Air Purifier electronic mask ‘PuriCare’ at the event.  That is, you will be able to wear this air purifier on the face like a mask.  LG’s announcement ahead of IFA 2020 doesn’t explicitly mention the COVID-19 pandemic, but it heavily implies that the mask was developed in response to it.

South Korean electronics giant told that the company will launch its unique electronic mask at IFA 2020 next week.  Two H13 HEPA filters will be found in this electronic mask.  This means that a system similar to the company’s home air purifier products will also be seen in this.  With the help of dual fans and respiratory sensors, the purifier will give clean and filtered air to the users.

 With the new device, users will be able to breathe clean air easily and the special sensors given in the mask will set the speed of 3-speed fans according to the breathing speed of the user.  The company says that the electric mask that fits on the user’s face reduces air leakage significantly and even after wearing it for hours, the user will not have any kind of discomfort or irritation.

 In the electronic mask, LG has given an 820mAh battery and the company says that this will provide up to 8 hours of backup in low performance-mode.  Apart from this, it can also be used for two hours in high-performance mode.  The company will also offer a special carry case for this electronic purifier.  Apart from this, it also has UV-LED, which can kill dangerous germs.  The mask can also be controlled from the phone’s app.

LG’s announcement, however, does not clear exactly when the mask will come in market or how much it will cost, but it is speculated that it will be available in the fourth quarter of this year in few markets.
