Especially when playing games or making long video calls. However, the small form factor with heavy use of CPU/GPU intensive applications will cause the smartphone to overheat.

The phone gets very hot and once it reaches a certain temperature, the operating system (OS) reduces the phone’s performance by 10-20%. This slows down device performance and interferes with user experience. Liquid cooling solves this problem.

Liquid cooling in smartphones works on the basic principle of heat dissipation. Smartphones with this technology come pre-installed with heat pipes containing cooling fluid. On demand, this pipe absorbs excess heat generated by the processor, turning the liquid inside the pipe into vapor. This significantly reduces the temperature of the device. It also helps extend the life of his SoC in the device.

Coming to the latest devices to incorporate this liquid cooling technology feature, Samsung’s latest flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, keeps the device cool during extended use, such as playing games and watching UHD videos. It is specially designed to The Galaxy S22 Ultra uses a newly designed heat transfer technology called Gel-TIM. It’s designed to help dissipate heat in a more efficient way than ever before, resulting in improved sustained performance. Samsung’s Gel-TIM is a thermal paste used in CPUs. The company says this will allow him to transfer heat 3.5 times more efficiently than last year’s device.

Similarly, the iQOO Neo 6 series is equipped with the latest Cascade Cooling System. His 5-layer 3D graphite cooling plate in the cascade cooling system is the uneven thickness of the graphite structure, which makes better use of the phone’s internal space, fits snugly to the heat source, and further accelerates heat transfer to create a “cascade “Create a. effect. According to the company, the technology offers a vast cooling area of ​​up to 36,907mm, promising a great gaming experience anytime, anywhere.

In particular, OnePlus 10 Pro features a 3D passive cooling system that effectively disperses heat, ensuring both casual and power users experience optimal performance for extended periods of time. For example, the device’s five-layer 3D passive cooling system provides a cooling area of ​​over 34,119.052 mm, boasting a large customized vapor chamber, copper foil, a new cooling film made of graphene material, and copper carbon on both sides.

In short, our smartphones should also stay cool and cool.
