Amid the ‘explosive’ collapse of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, the tech giants are taking all sorts of precaution measures to save themselves from running into a fiasco. The latest from the bandwagon is LG.
LG, in a recent statement, has said that it will use copper heat pipes to prevent its G6 flagship from overheating.
“As more consumers prefer safer smartphones, we will raise the level of safety and quality standards for our next strategic smartphone,” said Lee Suk-jong, Head – LG Global Operations while speaking to The Korean Herald.
The modus operandi of the copper heat pipes is modulating the temperature within the device by 6% to 10%. Apart from sprucing up its G6 flagship model, LG is also paying a close attention to the battery performance of its new handset. It is said that the multinational is checking the reliability of its batteries at a temperature, which is 15% higher than the US and European 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. 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.
