There's a nice chance this is going to pave the way for lighter and more durable mobile devices from Samsung, so we are all ears what will be the next steps for the JV, where each company has half of the shares. Of course, Samsung is involved in numerous other businesses, like shipbuilding and construction, which can benefit, but these composites can have multiple applications across Samsung's product spectrum. As SGL puts it:
Samsung Petrochemical's boss also chimed in:

Motorola has used carbon fiber for a while now. Can't wait to see what improvements Samsung will bring.

I hate the appearance of Motorola's carbon fiber razor series. If Samsung phones look anything like the hideous fast too furious razor series I'm moving away from Samsung

light & strong. This will put the cheap cola can (aluminium) to shame.

First and utmost for Samsung is to work on a new design... I own a Note, but ever since Samsungs involvement with JayZ (a known devil worshiper). I'm waiting for HTC one T6. :)

Society asking for more "Durable" phones, is equivelant to asking for more expensive phones. This sounds rather counter-productive considering 88% of smartphone owners purchase cases to put on their phones regardless of quality or durability(iPhones are a perfect example). Why ask for something more expensive if one is going to cover it anyway? I want to pay less for my phone; not more. I only hold onto it for two years at best. I've had no problem with my phone lasting this long other than battery issues. Only another reason why I hope accessibility is not lost with this news. John B.
