Even if we all decided to use our smartphones to just make phone calls, there’s no denying that they still heat-up. Whether it’s the display illumination or the fact that the game you’re playing is taking a hard toll on the processor, but it’s nearly inevitable with today’s technology for you to avoid that. You’d think that a solution to the problem should be for new enhancements to display illumination technology o processor efficiency, but it seems that there are other ideas being considered.
Digitimes is famous for leaking every bolt and screw from almost every gadget made in Asia, and new reports have both Apple and Samsung already working on liquid cooling systems for their next-generation smartphones. This is not new in gadgets though, as there are some computers that use this technology to ensure that their CPUs and GPUs reach higher limits for hard-core gaming or digital imagery processing. NEC has also shown the world how to bring these same laptop technologies to the Medias X06E smartphone as well. In a similar fashion Apple and Samsung are already rumored to be working on “ultra-thin heat pipes” to bring this same technology to their future smartphones.
According to Digitimes, we might see this happen as early as this fall, so who knows, we might be surprised.
