According to the Galaxy club, Samsung has just applied for the “Metal 12” trademark, Metal 12 refers to magnesium, because it happens to be the 12th element of the periodic table, in fact Samsung’s Metal 12 is a magnesium alloy, and has been introduced in Samsung’s new Notebook The 9 (2018) series, which will soon be used in Samsung’s mobile phones and wearable devices, will make these devices lighter and stronger.
Magnesium alloys can help Samsung reduce the overall weight of the equipment without affecting durability. Android World says the 13.3-inch notebook 9 weighs just 995 grams, and the 15.6-inch version weighs only 1200 grams because the laptops use metal 12 materials. Trademark applications submitted by the European Union intellectual Property Office show that the material can be used in other devices, including tablets, smartphones and wearable equipment.
Fans of the Galaxy S series will certainly recall that a few years ago, a rumor in Galaxy S7 that a cell phone would use a magnesium alloy fuselage, but never achieved it, and Samsung’s trademark claim indicates that the next generation Galaxy S9 is likely to use this material.
