The German company Carbon Mobile announced the release of the carbon 1 MK ll phone, which is considered the lightest smartphone in the world, reaching 125 grams, and it is the first in the world made of carbon fiber.
This means that the outer cover of the phone provides structural integrity with no internal supports.
Despite its wonderful properties, carbon fibers have a downside when used in smartphones, as carbon fibers block radio waves, which is why we see them used sparingly, but the company’s team spent years working on this problem and solving it.
The only solution to this problem is the HY RECM technology, which was developed over a period of four years. This technology combines carbon fibers with a composite material that allows radio waves to pass through.
The mono design does not have an internal frame, and all components are connected by the same carbon fiber, as plastic makes up less than 5% of the materials used in building the phone.
And every carbon mobile phone can be dismantled and converted into raw materials.
One of the main features of the carbon 1 MK ll phone is that it has an AMOLED screen measuring 6 inches with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18: 9.
The screen is protected by the thinnest 0.4mm Gorilla Glass Victus panel.
The phone works with Android 10, but the Android 11 update is coming in the second quarter.
And carbon 1 MK ll is powered by the HELIO P90 chipset, which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space.
A microSD card can also be added if you need more internal storage space.
The battery capacity is 3000 mAh, which can be charged up to 50%.
As for the camera, the device includes a 16-megapixel dual rear camera, and both seem to have the same focal length, while on the front there is a 20-megapixel camera.
The phone does not support the fifth generation networks, but it includes support for the WI-FI 5 standard
Bluetooth 5.0 with aptX HD, GLONASS, Galileo, and USB-C 3.1.
There is also no 3.5 mm headphone port, but there is NFC, and there is also a fingerprint reader installed on the side.
We find that the price of the phone reaches 800 euros.
