    Carbon Fiber! Strong as steel but 3x lighter! Cool!

    I've been waiting for someone to figure out that there are more materials in the world than plastic and metal! Hopefully my next phone will match my Kestrel

    This is great news. Can't wait to see it implemented.

    Carbon fiber is quite expensive. Hopefully they will make this economically feasible for use as a phone material.

    Yeah i remember reading that the s3 cost more to manufacture than the iphone5. Im not a samsung fan in any way but if using plastic leaves them more money to use on a beautiful display and internals then im cool with that. Theres plenty of nice cases around :)

    Aside from the lightweight strength of carbon fiber. The advantage to carbon fiber is the high thermal conductivity. So it will dissipate heat. Don't know enough about heat sinks though to know if that means that the carbon fiber itself will heat up and thus make the phone hotter to the touch.

    Wait a minute. Wouldn't using carbon fiber mean that it would be darn near impossible to pick up via radar, like the F-22?

    Droid does.....stealth? :p

    I really hope Samsung is really on the ball on this one. Carbon fiber composites don't dent like aluminum, so any exterior damage isn't readily obvious. Even though a slight bump might seem like it's nothing, you never know the extent of the damage until you go through the the trouble to look for delaminations branching from the point of impact. Low impact strength is CFC's main weakness.


    But I'm hopeful. With careful engineering, CFCs are lighter and have higher tensile strength. I really hope Boeing is doing its research on existing developments we've seen in CFC tech in the past 20 years.
