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.

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points. Thanks to the way Microsoft has worked to improve Microsoft apps and services across all platforms — from Macs to Android tablets to phones — you can still get most of the Microsoft goodies on a Chromebook. In fact, if you're on a tight computer budget, a Chromebook could be the best machine for Microsoft users — something even Microsoft acknowledges as it preps Windows 10X to better compete with Chrome OS. From productivity to playing games, here's how to get the best Microsoft experience on a Chromebook. Best of Microsoft on Chromeb

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those. Note: You will only be able to use a Pro Controller if your phone is running Android 10 and if the game you're playing supports controllers. Additionally, the process for syncing the controller with your phone will be different from one phone to the next.

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
