Samsung unveiled its latest “eco-phone” this week in Beijing.
The E200 Eco is the third phone Samsung has introduced this year with parts made from bioplastic materials extracted from corn and the first which features the entire case made from corn-based plastic.
The E200 Eco features a camera, video messaging and an MP3 player. The phone will be available in Europe next month but does not yet have an American release date.
Samsung affiliate Cheil Industries has been developing these environmentally friendly materials.
