Recycled ocean-bound fishing nets will be used in Samsung’s next Galaxy S22 series.
Samsung is two days away from unveiling its Galaxy S22 flagship phone series for 2022, and the corporation has now announced that the phones will include recycled ocean-bound plastic, which may be harmful to marine life. The following are the specifics.
Recycled fishing nets will be utilised in the Galaxy S22 series
As part of its commitment to a sustainable environment, Samsung has disclosed that the next Galaxy S22 series, as well as future devices, would be comprised of a material produced from recycled fishing nets. While attempting to limit the usage of single-use plastics, the new project will also assist the firm in developing novel product ideas.
Samsung said in a news statement that it aims to combat ocean pollution in a way that benefits both consumers and the environment. It reads, “Repurposing ocean-bound plastics is just the first step in our collective mission to address the climate crisis, and Samsung looks forward to using our scale, innovation, and open collaboration to uncover additional solutions.“
However, there is no information on what the new substance would be like. Samsung is likely to provide additional information about this during their Unpacked 2022 event on February 9 at 10 a.m. EST (8:30 IST).
For the uninitiated, the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra will be unveiled during the event. Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset variations, enhanced cameras, larger batteries, and other features are promised. While the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are expected to appear similar to the Galaxy S21 phones from 2021, the S22 Ultra will include minor design modifications and a dedicated S Pen slot. Along with the Galaxy S22 series, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is likely to be released.
When the launch happens later this week, we’ll let you know all the specifics. As a result, keep an eye on this space for updates.
