Are we going to see a new type of war soon between handset manufacturers? Just when Samsung introduced its solar powered touch phone, its Korean peer, LG also announced its solar powered clamshell phone. We are not pro at Korean but the rough machine translation says a 10 minute charge could give up to 3 minutes of talking. Like Samsungâ€™s phone, this one too gives a 360o green approach.
The phone is made from bio-plastic and is free from 6 RoHS hazardous substances (lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium 6, PBB, PBDE). LG has also worked on the standby power consumption and even has an eco-friendly manual which is printed with soy ink on a recycled paper.
The phone will be showcased at MWC.
