Samsung has a new “upcycling” initiative that will allow you put your old devices to new use.

Consumers tend to stick to their devices for just about two years especially with flagship brands like Apple and Samsung churning out upgrades yearly. Most of these old smartphones end up unused and toked away.

This is were the new project from a team of Samsung engineers has its focus on.  Samsung C-Lab, has come up with innovative ways to make these older devices useful. One of such is the “upscale” of old Galaxy S5s into a bitcoin mining rig.
