Smartphone 5G: need batteries the most capacious and new sinks for the high consumption
The CEO of Huawei Eric Xu has confirmed that the company is working to realize cooling modules of high quality in order to dissipate the heat generated by the modem 5G in arrival.
The next year will see the first smartphone with connectivity 5G. This new network will come in Italy, and with the operators that have already concluded the auction for the assignment of frequencies. At the hardware level, however, it presents an important problem in that the modem 5G warms and consumes a lot more than the current 4G antennas.
According to what reported by DigitTimes, the new modem 5G consume 2.5 times the energy needed to power a chip 4G. This means that the smartphone will need to increase the capacity of the batteries, so as to ensure at least an autonomy equal to that already present on smartphones today. In addition, also need cooling systems, particularly efficient in order to dissipate the heat generated by the modem 5G.
Huawei turned to the Auras Technology for the realization of systems with dissipation, created by using sheets of copper thin 0.4 mm. A similar solution has already been adopted within the laptop high-end. The production of these components has already begun, so that you can implement in the first smartphone 5G planned for the second half of 2019.
Also Apple will probably have to find a solution to the problem of high power consumption and heat. We will see which solution you decide to adopt, and if this will require changes in design, such as the increase of the thickness, of the next Apple smartphone.
