According to expectations, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will be pretty hot. And you willingly believe this, taking into account how the Snapdragon 888 was and the frequency that was “twisted” in the new chip. And this means that an additional load in the form of extra degrees will be in the filling of the Xiaomi 12. The company intends to help electronic components survive the heat.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 hot temper shouldn’t be an issue in the Xiaomi 12
Xiaomi’s product manager today announced on his Weibo page that the Xiaomi 12 will offer a powerful and efficient cooling system. The company promises that the smartphone has received a system with a “three-layer motherboard” to achieve the desired effect with cooling. The area on which the heat is removed is 2600 mm².
And so that users can appreciate the scale of the solution, they published a mock-up of a smartphone with the coverage area of the cooling system in real scale. It looks like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is really hot and the company had to offer a large surface area to cool it.
Whether there will be any sense from all these attempts; we will find out from the results of tests of serial samples of Xiaomi 12 next year. There are skeptics who are confident that the Android flagships of 2022 will be prone to overheating.
