LG Official Promises No Explosions For Upcoming G6 With Unique Heat Pipe Mechanism
Given the amount of leaks that we see everyday, it's hard to imagine that flagships other than Samsung's Galaxy S8 will launch this year. The Korean tech giant's upcoming smartphone has seen a lot of features surface so far. However, today, it's the turn of the LG G6 to grace the news. The company has made some statements about the device today. Take a look below for more.
LG Will Use Heat Pipes For The G6 To Prevent Overheating
2016 was an interesting year. Not only did we see few upgrades in the smartphone world, a couple of incidents were quick to make headlines. The Galaxy Note 7 took the lead, albeit for all the wrong reasons. Samsung's flagship phablet, which was all set to take on Apple's iPhone lineup, became the center of an overheating saga. Units of the device began to explode all over the world, especially in the United States. These events forced the company to recall the Note 7 as the device was banned from airlines as well.
Now, Korean manufacturer LG is promising that it's flagship smartphones will be safe from any such mishaps. The company's mobile communication division's chief Mr. Lee Seok-jong has made some statements to the media today. According to Lee, LG will use a unique mechanism involving heat pipes for the upcoming LG G6. This will ensure that the device is able to dissipate heat efficiently and avoid any mishaps.
“We will significantly improve the safety and quality of our new flagship smartphones as more consumers seek safe smartphones,” said Mr. Seok-jong. Another LG official also detailed on how the company will go around using the latest mechanism, According to him, "We are conducting battery heat exposure tests to a temperature 15 percent higher than the temperature set by the international standards of the US and Europe. The battery also undergoes diverse tests such as piercing it with a sharp nail or dropping a heavy object on it from a high place."
LG's been making some very durable smartphones lately. The company's V20 is MIL-STD 810G certified, which allows it to be used in military drills and combat. That's quite a rating if you ask us. Hopefully, LG will be able to top the bar with the G6. Samsung's bleeding and the sharks are circling around folks. It's definitely going to be an interesting year for mobile. Thoughts?
