Samsung W510 made from Corn

Samsung Electronics announced two environment-friendly mobile handsets, W510 and F268 at World IT Show in Seoul.

The Samsung W510 is the company's first mobile phone with 'bio-plastic' made from natural material extracted from corn.
When producing W510, Samsung did not use any heavy metals, such as Lead, Mercury, or Cadmium, and applied water-soluble coating.

The Samsung F268 with all the accessories including charger and headset does not contain BFRs (Brominated Flame Retardant) or PVC.
In addition, Samsung F268 has an alarm function to encourage users to unplug their charger when the devices are fully charged. The product also follows the Energy Star requirements as well, which are strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy.

The Samsung W510 for the Korean market and Samsung F268 for the Chinese market will be launched in June.
