Samsung Electronics has introduced its first ever, innovative, solar powered cellular phone; “Solar Crest” in Pakistan, emphasizing Samsung’s vision and its pioneering efforts for environmental sustainability. As a global leader in cutting-edge technology, Samsung is leading the way into a greener future by utilizing sources of renewable energy. This innovation is a quantum leap towards technologies that will minimize reliance on ecologically harmful sources of energy. This handset is designed with integrated solar panels, thus it operates and recharges without any ecological deterioration.
