In the wake of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 7 disaster and the issues surrounding the Apple iPhone, many companies are now resolved to taking tougher measures to ensure that their smartphones do not pose any health risks to users.
One such company is LG and recently, reports surfaced claiming that the South Korean tech company will be taking the G6 through tougher tests to ensure that it doesn’t do a Galaxy Note 7. Furthermore, the report added that the flagship will adopt a new technology that involves the use of heat pipes in controlling the issue of overheating.
Apparently, Samsung Galaxy S8 will also be taking the same direction as LG G6 as far as the heat pipes are concerned. We are talking of copper-made heat pipes (unless Samsung has a different idea) placed on either end of the phone and their role is to help with the faster transfer of generated heat away from the device. This technology is common on laptops whose processors generate lots of heat that need immediate dispensation. With a faster-cooling Samsung Galaxy S8, the company is sure that there won’t be a repeat of what happened with the Note 7.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 towards the end of March and release it somewhere in mid-April. The flagship has a lot on its shoulders following the death of the Note 7, but it seems Samsung is ready to deliver. There is talk of two models – one with 5.7-inches of display and the other with 6.2 inches. Both will have curved screens and this time, there’s no physical home button, instead, it has moved to the screen.
The Snapdragon 835 will power some of the devices while others will be powered by an Exynos 8895, rumors claim. There will be up to 6GB of RAM and possibly double the amount of maximum storage the Galaxy S7 Edge managed. Android 7.0 Nougat will be running the show out of the box.
Like many other details that are currently doing rounds regarding the flagship Samsung Galaxy S8, the latest report on thermal pipes is also a rumor and hasn’t been confirmed yet. As such, take it with a grain of salt.
