The Galaxy S7 – Unique Cooling System

The Galaxy S7 - The Coolest Smartphone with Its Own Personal Air-Conditioning

Unique Cooling System allows uninterrupted usage even when running intensive applications

Virtual reality engine, pocket DSLR, supercomputer, smart-key, gaming console and media powerhouse- the all-new Galaxy S7 wears many tags with ease. The advanced capabilities and specifications of the smartphone also brings with it unique challenges in order to deliver the ultimate user experience.  Smartphones getting overheated with extended use has been an Achilles heel of sorts for the mobile phone industry.  Unlike the conventional systems before it, Samsung has succeeded in creating a super thin cooling apparatus (0.6mm) for the powerful Exynos processor in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. A variation of the desktop water-cooling model, the cooling technology at play in these smartphones keeps vital components like the processor working at optimum temperature, greatly extending the lifespan and allowing for longer uninterrupted usage.

Under the stunning metal shell of the Galaxy S7 is flat copper piping that weaves around the Graphics Processing Unit and the processor to dissipate the heat generated by the phone.  The piping ensures that the heat is evenly spread and not concentrated on any specific spots.

Loosely described as the ‘air conditioning for your phone’, the piping has a liquid that vaporizes at high temperatures and then condenses at low temperatures. The liquid draws heat from the processor when vaporized and repeats the cycle over and over again, converting from vapor to liquid and vice versa depending on which component is hotter than the rest.

Supporting Vulkan API, the phones can run graphic intensive games such as Asphalt 8 with ease.  The S7 and S7 edge are powered by a  64 bit Octa core (2.3GHz Quad + 1.6GHz Quad processor, mated with a Quad HD Super AMOLED screen (5.1” 2560 X 1440 (577ppi) screen on the S7 and 5.5” Quad 2560 X 1440 (534ppi) on the S7 Edge). The phone’s Dual Pixel sensors, an industry first for mobile camera technology mirror the human eyes’ fast autofocus, setting the world standard in low-light mobile camera technology.
