So it seems like the plastic body era has come to an end for Samsung. Samsung has partnered with the Carbon fiber manufacturer SGL Group. This could be the hint for the future Samsung products to come with the much lighter and stronger Carbon Fiber body parts. There are a lot of good reasons to choose carbon fiber for body parts. Its very light, very strong and it could easily be moulded to any shape they might want.
There was a report about Samsung to choose metal as the body part for some of their up coming smartphones/tablets. But it would all be good if they dumps metal and start making products with the carbon fiber body. Yoosung Chung, President and CEO of Samsung Petrochemical said about this new partnership with SGL Group:
âOur long-term cooperation with SGL Group will ensure the exclusive supply of carbon fiber composite materials to Samsung. We selected SGL Group as partner due to the companyâs unique expertise along the entire value chain from carbon fibers to CFRP components. Lightweight materials have become an important factor not only in industrial applications but also the consumer end markets such as digital media. This partnership will position Samsung as a leading player in the development and application of carbon fiber-based products.â
