Not even a day has passed since the official unveiling of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge that the smartphone receives a teardown treatment. A Russian tech blog got their hands on a S7 unit and instead of a million things they could have done, they decided to disassemble it with a simple heat-gun.
This operation revealed something literally amazing, apparently the all new flagship Galaxy S7 features a liquid cooling technology inside. Although no exact details of the technology are outed yet, but reports are that it is built on some intricate flat copper piping with a tiny amount of coolant inside tasked to take the heat away from the Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 chipset. This particular technology would literally come in handy while heavy operations like gaming.
We know that Samsung put extra effort in stressing the fact that the new Samsung Galaxy series has some impressive gaming capabilities. This smartphone now features the new Vulcan graphics along with a dedicated Game launcher. This Game launcher by Samsung will minimize notifications and other disruptions whilst gaming to drastically enhance the experience. Thanks to the liquid cooling technology, heat will now be extracted very effectively away from the delicate components thus increasing the life of the motherboard. Needless to say, problems like overheating and freezing will now be countered.
Apart from this major revelation, the dis-assemblers found that Samsung used some kind of a strong watertight adhesive to pack the the rear cover instead of the standard rubber seals. Now this should be kept in mind that there may be a possibility that this adhesive may lose its properties if exposed to high temperature for a prolonged period. Furthermore, if you take your smartphone to get an old battery or a broken screen replaced, the handset might just lose its IP68 waterproof certification.
Last but not the least, the teardown unveiled the robustness of the power button. It seems that it has been installed with quite strong mechanism which won’t give away with time. So there’s another good news for the careless guys out there.
