JEC Composites Innovation Awards 2021 Winner - Carbon Moble

Firas Khalifeh, CEO of Carbon Mobile, presents the world’s first carbon fibre smartphone

The Carbon 1 MK II, designed in Germany, was awarded in the design category.
Firas Khalifeh, CEO of Carbon Mobile, upon winning the award said, ""We’re incredibly proud the JEC Award judges have recognized and awarded the Carbon 1 MK II. High-performance materials like carbon fibre will drive forward the more exciting and greener future of connected devices.”
Despite their advanced properties for producing robust yet lightweight structures, carbon fibres behave in an electromagnetic shielding manner, meaning that they block radio signals.
After years of research and development, Carbon Mobile’s engineers have developed a revolutionary process to unlock carbon fibre’s potential for connected devices.
