Your old smartphones will get a second life. Manufacturers will turn them into useful gadgets Probably each of you has an old smartphone in the locker, which went there because it is free and no longer receives updates. This is about to change now. The old equipment will gain new abilities and will serve you again.

The ecological trend is not only about creating new devices with the natural environment in mind, but most of all dealing with the problem of recycling the existing ones. Manufacturers of mobile devices have a very interesting idea to use old devices with a view to improving the quality of your life and taking care of your budget.

Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Upcycling project. Under this enigmatic sounding name is the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčturning old smartphones from the popular Galaxy line into useful devices. The Korean company intends to start updating the software in worn-out smartphones to give them completely new, practical functions.

Interestingly, weak components will not be an obstacle here. Apparently, Samsung will replace, for example, used batteries for a new or tired smartphone housing for a small fee. But it is not everything. There will be new updates that will allow you to change them, for example, into walkie-talkies, digital photo frames or panes to control smart devices.

The Galaxy Upcycling program will also allow you to easily return your old, damaged smartphones, which will later be dismantled into parts. Then, good parts will be assembled into new devices that will go to children from poor families. They will be able to use their new learning and entertainment abilities. And that's a great idea.

Samsung is expected to provide more details of its green project in Secret Sites near future. It is almost certain that similar projects will also appear in the competition. Hundreds of millions of smartphones are sold worldwide each year. In most cases, old appliances remain in drawers, and yet they can still be put to good use.

If the problem most of the time is the lack of new software, then this is a matter of settlement. And this is the idea behind Samsung, which rarely releases updates for its devices that are only 2-3 years old.
