This girly Android smartphone comes with liquid cooling, racing stripes
Liquid cooling is what hardcore PC overclockers use to keep their high-performance machines from failing due to excessive heat. It is a cooling method used in cars, power plants, industrial equipment and... now smartphones. Well, just one smartphone in particular – the NEC Medias X, which is one of the handsets that NTT DoCoMo announced last week

But why would something as low-powered as a smartphone need liquid cooling? Well, the reason isn't related to overclocking as the NEC Medias X comes with a Snapdragon 600 SoC – a chip we're already familiar with, clocked at its default 1.7GHz frequency. The cooling method was added to provide better heat dissipation, spreading the excessive energy across more of the phone's surface. You know, so that it doesn't get hot to the touch only at a single point during an intensive gaming session. Take a look at the image below illustrating the heat emitted from a NEC Medias X compared to a non-liquid cooled phone

Thanks for the tip!

Wow, because it is a Japanese product? Weakest argument ever... Coming from galaxymega6.3. Fanboy much? -_-' This is proper innovation, not some software gimmick

"...the other one is the Japanese product" Could you explain what exactly you don't like about Japanese products? Or maybe it is not about the products at all?

Japanese manufacturing is not bad at all. If he meant Chinese then hes a hypocrite because the Galaxy phones are made in China.

He forgot that Sony, the company who made the sensor for the S4, is Japanese.

I don't think that he forgot that, I'm sure that he never knew that.

Japanese-branded products are better than both Korean and Chinese sh!t. I always go for made in japan stuff and buy things and sundry from outlets like DAISO.

It'd be wrong to deny that the Japanese make quality electronics, but you'd be wrong to say that Korea doesn't. Also, China -is- catching up, much to the dismay of some. Besides, it's hard to not expect bias for Japan coming from someone with 'kurogane' in their name, as well as what looks to be a 5-year-old wearing panties on her head.

true, perhaps in electronic sector, the korean & chinese can catch up the Japanese. But from automotive sector, the korean is still far behind. Japanese joins motorsport like formula 1, motogp, etc. and builds supercars & superbikes.

Well of course I know that. We aren't talking about automotive tech here, so I don't know why you brought that up. It's funny that people red-thumbed my previous comment. I would hope it's because of rudeness and not the truth of it...

No dude, you're wrong. Chinese branded products aren't bad at all, like Huawei, their phones aren't bad at all. And don't forget, China is catching up. Not all Chinese branded products are bad!

The Oppo Find 5, which is a chinese smartphone, is considered as a better smartphone than the Sony XZ, according to lots of reviews. How do you explain that?

Except for the looks, that thing is no girl-stuff inside.

Now if Samsung use this on there S5 with E5450Exynos Dual+Quadcore=6xA15, or 8xA15 clocked at 2.9Ghz, man whatever you thro at it, no matter how many widgets, live wallpapers wild running 40+apps, this thing will load in an instance, web browsing will be way much faster. Antutu would score 60.000+ holy moly cow... ®

Japan knows what the consumers wants and also know how too attract female consumers too and our u.s. counterpart can't do this.

I've been wondering how long before this would show up in a mobile device.
