Samsung Makes Sure Galaxy S8 Won’t Repeat The Galaxy Note 7 Fiasco By Using Thermal Pipes Like The LG G6
LG and Samsung are going to utilize thermal pipes for their respective flagship devices, which are actually due for release this year, a brand new report says. This technology is going to allow the devices not to overheat, which happens to be a situation Samsung is actually trying to stay away from, lest it springs up a brand new debacle.
LG had previously confirmed that it will outfit the LG G6 with heat pipes to avoid undesirable and potentially life threatening incidents where devices explode suddenly. In the same vein, Samsung is going to employ a design for the Galaxy S8 that also includes thermal pipes, which will stop the unit from being embroiled in aforementioned incidents.
Samsung: Galaxy S8 Will Not Explode
Per Digitimes, citing supply chain producers as the form, the Galaxy S8 will be embedded with thermal pipes manufactured by Taiwan based Auras Technology and Chaun Chong Technology. Meanwhile, the LG G6 is going to have heat pipes from Japan based Furukawa Electric and Taiwan based Delta Electronics.
The Galaxy S8 is supposed to contain 2 ultra thin pipes, based on the article. This will have increased thermal dissipation, though the energy sources claimed that the Galaxy S8 will instead use Galaxy S7’s ultra thin heat pipe design. Mass shipments of this particular part commence February, the article claims.
Digitimes’ report states the Galaxy S8 is going to launch in March. The release plan conflicts with a different rumor which touts a mid April release for the imminent flagship.
Note 7 Fiasco
Ideally, the winter pipes prevent the impending flagship from encountering the same snafus the Note seven did. In 2016, Note seven handsets started exploding randomly – not all, to be clear, but enough to be a pressing matter. Soon after, Samsung initiated a recall system for affected customers. When the issue still persisted, Samsung officially withdrew all Note seven products outside in the outdoors and halted the device’s production altogether. As it appears, the Note seven fiasco is quite possibly the biggest security blunder in the story of smartphones, a circumstance so dire that the Federal Aviation Administration officially banned the Note seven from air travel. The ban has since been lifted Jan. ten.
Reports say that Samsung’s Note seven investigation has wrapped up, and it is poised to disclose its findings before January ends. Furthermore, it is also likely to spotlight other steps it is taking to reduce Galaxy S8 battery explosions.
Galaxy S8 Unveiling
Samsung is likely to unveil the Galaxy S8 come late February at this year’s Mobile World Congress, happening in Barcelona, Spain. It is being tipped coming rocking with lot of things, but largely, rumors point the Galaxy S8 to have a curved near-bezel-less screen constructed under the Y OCTA display technology, an iris scanner like the one found on the Note seven, 3D Touch ish screen pressure sensitivity, and other things.
Whatever the Galaxy S8 ends up being, explosive should not be one of them. The phone is not only Samsung’s newest flagship. Additionally, it stands as an opportunity for the business to confirm that it is able to greatly patch a screwup.
