Xiaomi unveils promising new Loop LiquidCool technology for smartphones

The new solution is not only more effective than vapor chamber solutions, but also frees up space for a bigger battery or a larger camera module.

What you need to know

  • Xiaomi has introduced an innovative new heat dissipation solution called Loop LiquidCool.
  • Inspired by cooling solutions used in the aerospace industry, the new technology uses a capillary effect to improve heat dissipation.
  • Xiaomi says it will launch its first phones with Loop LiquidCool technology in H2 2022.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has unveiled a new cooling solution for smartphones, which it claims offers twice the cooling capability of vapor chamber cooling solutions that are used in the best Android phones currently.

Dubbed Loop LiquidCool technology, the solution "utilizes a capillary effect which draws liquid cooling agent to the heat source, vaporizes, and then disperses the heat efficiently towards a cooler area, until the agent condenses and is captured via a unidirectional closed looped channel."

Xiaomi's Loop LiquidCool technology uses a similar method as vapor chamber liquid cooling, but with separate channels for gases and liquids. Since vapor chamber systems don't use separate channels for gases and liquids, hot gas and cool liquids can often mix and obstruct each other under high workloads.

The new cooling solution also uses a ring-shaped pump with a special gas pipe design that lowers air passage resistance by 30%. The maximum heat transfer capacity, on the other hand, is said to be increased by up to 100%.

Another key highlight of the new solution is the Tesla valve structure within the refill chamber, which ensures one-way-high-efficiency circulation. A Tesla valve makes it possible for liquid to pass through the evaporator, while blocking gases from moving in the opposite direction. This, Xiaomi says, allows for higher efficiency in gas/liquid circulation throughout the cooling system.

Xiaomi replaced the original vapor chamber cooling system on a custom MIX 4 with its new Loop LiquidCool solution and found that the technology kept the maximum temperature below 47.7℃ (117.8°F). The temperature of the phone's processor was found to be 8.6℃ (47.48°F) lower than the standard version.

In addition to being more efficient than current vapor chamber cooling solutions, Xiaomi claims its Loop LiquidCool technology can fit into any type of internal design and allows more space for other components such as the battery and camera module.

Xiaomi plans to roll out its first products with Loop LiquidCool technology in the second half of 2022.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1

These Android games support Bluetooth controllers and they're better for it

Gaming is simply better with a controller in your hands. Gaming on Android typically requires you to settle for using touchscreen controls.
