LG G6 May Have New Heat Pipe Cooling System for Extra Safety

Posted by at 11:42 am on January 16, 2017

LG is taking extra steps to test the safety of the batteries going into the G6 as well as adding hardware to help disperse heat…

“We will significantly improve the safety and quality of our new flagship smartphones as more consumers seek safe smartphones,” Lee Seok-jong from LG Electronics’ mobile communication operation group said.

To do this, LG is running extensive tests on its batteries to make sure that they won’t explode or accidentally harm someone. These include exposing the batteries to heat 15 percent hotter than mandated by US and European standards as well as puncturing and dropping the batteries from extreme heights.

The Korean Herald was told by an LG representative that the G6 will also feature copper “heat pipes” which conduct heat away from the phone’s SoC. A mockup of how this might look can be seen below. While the addition of copper heat pipes is not new for smartphones (even the exploding Galaxy Note 7 had them), it’s new for LG’s lineup.
