Kevlar cases? Why not just make the phone from this?

Hi all,

I see on NPU that there's a rumour that HMD will start to sell Nokia branded Kevlar cases for the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2. However,

  1. I've no idea if this is true
  2. Isn't Kevlar expensive? 😕
  3. Why not just make the phone from Kevlar in the first place?! 😖

The second point makes me think that these won't be real Kevlar, after all, I'm pretty sure that this is a relatively expensive material, sometimes more so than carbon fibre.

Anyway my main point is about use of cases - if phone's are so fragile that people need to put a protective case around them (not just cosmetic or functional like in the old days, but actually protective) then why not make the phone's tougher in the first place? I mean, do most people now use a case? If most people use a case then this probably means the phones are too fragile! So they look great, but all those great looks that we pay for are soon hidden behind a nowhere-near-as-good-looking case.

So what's the point? Can't HMD lead the world by making a phone that looks great and is tough enough not to need a case? 💡

Cheers 🙂
