Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was totally a disaster due to the problematic battery, which also served as a wake-up call for other phone makers. LG Electronics has recently claimed that they’re adopting a new technology to make sure its new flagship smartphone G6 is safe enough.
Koreaherald reports that the Korean company would start to use copper heatpipes for the G6 so as to conduct heat away quickly. As we know, heatpipes are usually used in laptops as a cooling solution, which is capable of reducing temperatures by 6-10%.
Additionally, LG is conducting safety tests that are tougher than international standards. “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,” a LG official said.
Expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February, LG G6 is likely to hit retail on March 10. The phone is coming with a 5.7-inch 2K+ display, and LG will ditch the modular design on it.
