Samsung is readying another eco-friendly phone for launch, the Restore model, that gets pictured below and will soon reach Sprint’s portofolio. This is a messaging phone we’re talking about, made out of environmentally-friendly materials, like recycled plastic and you have to know that its case has low levels of PVC, BFRs, Phthalates, Beryllium and more.
All in all, this device is 84% recyclable, while its package is 100% recyclable, plus the charger is Energy Star Version 2.0 rated. As far as specs are concerned, Samsung Restore features a sliding QWERTY keyboard, an optical navigation key, a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a music player and a microSD card slot (supports 32GB cards).
Restore will be available starting this summer for $49.99, with a 2 year contract, on a $50 mail in rebate.
