The Samsung Galaxy S22 series can use steam chambers to cool the inside of the handset, using a technology often found in high-end gaming phones.
Not that Samsung is a stranger to using steam chambers in the flagships, but it has been implemented in a random way, and placed them in the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, but not the cheaper siblings (they have an ‘advanced heat pipe system’), as well as in some (but not all) Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra phones.
Now a new one DigiTimes The report suggests that Samsung is considering bringing back steam chambers for its 2022 flagships, and although it is still uncertain, it is apparently promising enough for Taiwanese suppliers to get ready in case the phone maker orders them a lot.
This probably means the flagship series Samsung Galaxy S22, but can also include other top phones ̵
Would the phones really need a steam chamber?
Steam chambers have certainly sounded like the best mobile cooling situations, especially since they are featured in top gaming phones – heck, the Asus ROG 3 even has a transparent plastic section on the back cover to show off the steam chamber.
And while the steam chambers cool down phones, it is not clear if they are the only solution for top-level flagship phones. In fact, the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra phones had several cooling systems that were quietly implemented – seemingly randomly – across both phone models. Some wanted copper vapor chambers, while others wanted termite pads in graphite that removed heat.
In an investigative demolition report, I’m fixing it found that the systems appeared to be split between telephone models apparently for no reason or reason. While boasting of steam chambers appeared to have been a marketing ploy that sold several devices in previous S-Series flagship phones, they are potentially prone to failure when damaged, an expert told the website. While graphite pads reportedly appeared in the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, it may mean that bringing on steam chambers in the 2022 smartphones, that the phone maker is not settled on one cooling technique over the other.
