Each time a new gaming phone is announced we hear a lot about the cooling – so it is surprising that the supreme vapor cooling chamber will not be stumbled on in a gaming phone but in the Sony Xperia Pro instead. Zack from JerryRigEverything has taken apart his fair share of ROG Phones, Black Sharks, Crimson Magics and so on, so he knows what he is talking about.
Sony frail a plastic frame and plastic back on the Pro model rather than the metal and glass build of the Xperia 1 II. That may have improved durability (the plastic back will not be going to crack easily), but it also complicated cooling.
The gargantuan vapor cooling chamber of the Sony Xperia Pro (the gold-colored plate with divets)
A metal plate serves as the interface with various graphite sheets wicking heat away from components and leading it to the plate. This includes sheets that assist chilly the phone’s 5G antennas.
The metal plate in turn transfers heat to an grand vapor chamber – it’s almost as tall and broad as the phone. The chamber then dumps all the heat out thru the display camouflage. Watch the video below for a few more interesting tidbits about the build.
Chances are that you’re not going to employ $2,500 on a phone to utilize the Xperia Pro. Especially since the long delayed launch means that the Pro is powered by last year’s Snapdragon 865. Tranquil, gaming phone makers can probably catch up a few tricks from Sony on cooling build.
In case you uncared for it, here is JRE’s durability take a look at to stumble on if Sony succeeded in building a phone durable satisfactory for professionals.
