These honours include the following awards;

  • A Gold Tier Award, the EPA’s highest award for the responsible recycling of electronic waste (e-waste).
  • A Sustained Excellence Award, a new EPA accolade.
  • In addition, Samsung’s SolarCell remote control, introduced in early 2021 and developed to reduce battery waste and help narrow the loop on plastic waste, also won an honorary recognition.

The US EPA SMM Programme

  • These awards were based on the recognition by US EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) program, where the victors were recognized in a virtual grants ceremony.
  • SMM Grant 2021 EPA’s SMM Gadgets Challenge program recognizes brands that have utilized inventive techniques in using materials for reducing pollution. Samsung has been associated with the SMM since 2011 & got many recognitions. 

Samsung’s Contribution & Recognition

  • The EPA SMM Gold Level Grant, which Samsung has won for the eighth year in a push, recognizes brilliance in e-waste collection in the U.S. Samsung collects and reuses 100 million pounds of e-waste each year within the U.S.
  • Since 2008, Samsung has reused over a billion pounds of hardware, moved them out of U.S. landfills, and recouped reusable materials with a target of putting 500,000 tons of reused plastic in its products universally by 2030. 
  • Samsung is also working on sun-powered batteries to further control & eliminate the waste of more than 200 million A.A. batteries from the earth. This innovation available on Samsung K and 8K QLED TVs (Neo, Q80A, Q70A, Q60A) and MicroLED are expected to eliminate the waste of 99 million A.A. batteries and avoid 5,840 greenhouse gas GHG.

Additionally, in January 2022, Samsung announced advancements in the second generation of its SolarCell remote control, which can now draw power from radio frequencies into devices like Wi-Fi routers. Remote controls have also been incorporated into more Samsung products, such as new Samsung T.V.s and home appliances.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

The image has a Samsung Galaxy AI watermark which points out that it might be made changes, however, it’s best to wait for more confirmation before trusting this particular design detail since the brand has yet to reveal any official details.
