HMD introduces Nokia's eco-friendly smartphone
HMD Global, the exclusive licensee for Nokia-branded smartphones and accessories, has launched a new smartphone model as the first eco-friendly handset in Thailand to catch a global trend. Paradorn Ramaboot, business development manager at HMD Global, said the company will focus more on sustainability by making "green" smartphones that are durable and safe. He said HMD wants to support consumers using their smartphones longer to reduce electronic waste, following the eco-friendly theme. HMD recently launched the mid level Nokia X30 5G, which is made mostly from recycled paper instead of plastics and chemicals. The focus is on materials that are as environmentally friendly as possible, Mr Paradorn said. The phone case is manufactured mostly from recycled materials. The aluminium frames are 100% recycled and the back cover is plastic with 65% recycling. The box and packaging are made from 100% recycled paper.
