“The Crest Solar represents our effort and commitment to strengthen our leadership in the solar panel mobile market,” said JK Shin, head of Samsung’s Mobile Communication Division. “The Crest Solar will be the perfect fit for anyone in any market — not only because it is solar powered, but because it has features that were designed to appeal to various cultures.”

According to Samsung, users of the Crest Solar mobile phone can pretend they have an incoming call for escaping unsafe situations, thanks to its fake call feature.

The new affordable Samsung Crest Solar handset will hit numerous markets including India, Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia and Latin America beginning this month.
