Samsung Breaks Barriers Implements Notebook Level Water Cooling Solution in the Galaxy Note 9

Samsung’s Note series have always been Samsung’s real flagship devices. They share a lot of DNA with it’s sibling, the S series. But they always release a few months after the S series and Samsung utilizes the time to perfect the Note series and the end results speak for themselves.

This year’s Note 9 is no different. Initial previews have been very positive for the device and a lot of complaints, like the awkward position of the fingerprint sensor, which has been fixed in this year’s iteration.

But, this year we have a massive improvement in the thermals department. Hi Tech Mail Ru from Russia had dismantled the device and found out that the Note 9 had a entire copper tube for heat dissipation. This is a far-cry from the passive cooling methods used in most phones. Samsung has claimed that the new copper tubes inside have actual water inside them called the  “water-carbon” system. Even flagship devices have copper tubes for cooling but they aren’t as big as the one in the Note 9. Infact this has a lot of resemblance with the ROG gaming phone from ASUS, which had massive copper tubes for cooling.

Gaming has recently picked up on Android phones due to the releases of both PUBG and Fortnite. Fortnite is also a Note 9 exclusive on launch, so Samsung might be targeting the gamer demographic with their new device. So certainly better cooling solutions will go a long way.

Apart from the thermals, there have been minor changes underneath the hood of the Note 9. The S pen is more tightly packed with the hardware and the charging port has been integrated with the motherboard, but not as a single unit. Even with these improvements, they have managed to put a massive 4000mAh battery.

The Note 9 is powered by the Snapdragon 845 and will be available in 128GB / 6GB RAM and 512GB / 8GB RAM versions with a 6.4 inch OLED display. Preorders have started today and the phone will be available with retailers from 24th August.
