The Galaxy Note 7 fever and its problems with the battery has brought consequences, this time positive for users, and it seems that the smartphones of 2017 will have to be examined thoroughly with the toughest tests that the telephone industry has done so far.
The last to move tab has been LG, who in the words of Lee Seok-jong to Koreal Herald has confirmed directly that the G6 will be the safest phone in its history, and that it will hit the market after very hard tests to ensure its operation.
We will significantly improve the safety and quality of our new flagship smartphone, as consumers are now looking for safer phones.
The LG G6 will also be the first LG smartphone to use a cooling system based on heatpipes to keep the heart of the terminal at adequate temperatures, although this type of heat sinks had already seen them especially after the overheating problems of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 a couple of years ago.
For example, passive cooling tubes use some Sony Xperia phones, Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Lumia 950 XL. Note that the Galaxy Note 7 also incorporated heatpipes to dissipate heat, although the problem of their “fires” was another.
As is obvious and seen the seen, LG also confirms very rigorous tests to the battery to ensure that a case like the Galaxy Note 7 at home is not repeated:
We are conducting tests of exposure to battery heat even at a temperature fifteen percent higher than that established by the international standards of the United States of Europe.
The battery is also subjected to various tests such as drilling with a sharp object or beating, dropping a heavy object on it from a considerable height.
If nothing goes wrong, the LG G6 should see the light at the Mobile Word Congress 2017 in little more than a month and a half, although we are 100% sure that we will have more data long before its official presentation. Do not disconnect this month!
