    Default Samsung is planning to add liquid cooling technology to Samsung Galaxy S7.

    Over heating of device is a matter of serious concern, especially in Android models. It can seriously affect the performance of your device and also may lead to sudden power drain or bloating of battery and can even damage the device from inside.

    It is heard that to beat this Samsung is planning to incorporate liquid cooling technology to keep the device cool. It is possible by running pipes of cool liquid inside the device. But the major challenge is the size of the device as the new technology could increase the size of the device to a great extent. It is a real challenge before Samsung.

    It is not the first time this technology is being used in a smartphone. Sony Xperia Z5 and Lumia 950 XL already have built in liquid cooling feature.

    It is a good news, because the new Snapdragon processors normally heat so much, thereat it decrease cpu performance. Microsoft and Sony used this excellent solution to avoid uncomfortable during user experience and to increase the durability of phones.

    Yes, it will definitely increase Samsung phone's acceptability. But the real challenge is the size of the phones. I read they are still working on that as they don't want to compromise on size and price. I mean no price rise because of this. If installation of this new feature causes a price rise, it is not going to help Samsung as they are already facing stiff competition from other Android mobile brands. I heard that they are even planning to reduce the price to withstand the competition. So they have to find a perfect balance between cost of production and price of the handset.

    But as a technology it is very useful and as you said it can greatly increase the life span of the device.

    I wonder if this means this phone will make charging while playing not an issue anymore. Let's be honest, it sucks when your battery is low when you have something to do online or you are addicted to a game.

    Nowadays, the games and graphics applications are more modern, it is necessary to improve the hardware. Thereat, the younger cpu heat up much more than the old and decreases efficiency. Consequently, a more modern system cooling is required. There are some phones that use the Snapdragon 810 as LG G FLEX 2 that loses some performance because of overheating, but it does not use a good cooling system. Unfortunately, The price will increase a little bit.

    While I think that Samsung looking at cooling is a good idea, I'm not sure that liquid cooling is the best option.

    Surely the developers of the processors can come up with their own solutions to the problem?

    I do not know how nowadays the cooling systems work on phones, but I believe water cooling will decrease temperature on CPU, so it is the best solution. Maybe, it will increase phone price.

    I was familiar with 'liquid cooling' technology only with the bikes. Anyways, I guess that would be very useful and benificial to users, as this is a very common issue now a days and it also results in the downfall of sales of smartphones. Mostly, heating issues occur due to overclocked CPUs which needs proper tuning.

    Initially, it will be an expensive technology, but its price will decrease futurity like any technology.

    When it comes to water cooling I'd also be concerned with the weight aspect it would add to a mobile device also. While the cooling is an issue, so is the mobility factor and I'm not sure that water cooling would be the most effective in my opinion.

    @webworld, liquid coolers in phones? isn't there a risk of it destroying the phone? Like you said there are already some made. Like what happens if a person manges to break the cooler?

    Liquid cooling has been very effective. Models like Sony Xperia Z5 and Lumia 950 XL have already employed this. Samsung is planning to fit pipes that carry liquid which ensures more effective conductivity for heat. The heat is absorbed by this liquid and then thermal dynamics spread it around the system over non-critical areas. Samsung has already started sourcing a supplier for heat pipes.

    But yes, if somebody happens to break the cooler nothing can be done, better go for a new phone. That will any way damage the inner circuits of the phone.

    So this phones, despite the good they provide, are still high-risk when being bought? Would you get a phone like this?

    To be frank, I don't get what do you mean by high risk in this model? I can't find any risk factor in this phone. It is just like any other handset model. In other models if you break the phone, nothing can be done and similar is the case with a phone with liquid cooling. I am sure it will not be visible when you open its back cover and also the pipes would be strong enough to withstand any kind of shocks.

    But I am quite concerned about how it is going to make the phone bulky and its impact on the pricing of the product.

    Do you think this technology will now keep batteries from bloating if we play an app while charging? Overheating seemed to be an issue to people who uses their device while charging.
