LG G6 to have ‘heat pipe’ cooling system
After the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall, hardware manufacturers have been trying to take all measures to ensure that their smartphones are entirely safe and free from all sorts of perils. LG is taking additional cautions to test the safety of the batteries for the LG G6. It is also adding hardware in order to help disperse heat.

We will significantly improve the safety and quality of our new flagship smartphones as more consumers seek safe smartphones,

In order to make this possible, LG is running broad tests on its batteries to ensure that they won’t explode or cause any harm to anyone. Tests include revealing the batteries to heat 15% hotter compared to mandated by US and European standards and piercing and falling the batteries from great heights.
According to reports, an LG representative stated that the G6 will have copper “heat pipes” as well that take heat away from the device’s SoC. Though adding copper heat pipes is nothing new for smartphones, it’s surely something new for LG’s phones.
For now we just know that the LG G6 will most probably include an 18:9 ratio QHD+ display and that it may resemble to the G5 and the LG V20 – a combination of the two in looks. Hopefully, we will get to know more from LG at Mobile World Congress in near future.
