Carbon Mobile was founded 4 years ago to accelerate the adoption of advanced materials in personal electronics.
Carbon is the brainchild of founder Firas Khalifeh. It started when he asked the simple question, ‘Why aren’t advanced composites like carbon fiber materials accelerating change in personal electronics the same way they are in other premium sectors?’
This sparked a journey of discovery and lead to the development of the lightest and thinnest 6" smartphone. All possible by rethinking the materials we use to create tech.
He has a pretty fascinating story to tell. He’s recently been sharing with some journalists and tech commentators.
Here are two great examples.
