Samsung Galaxy S8 to use a heat pipe design similar to the S7

The Galaxy S7 was Samsung’s first phone to feature a heat pipe and word from the grapevine is that the company will use a similar design for the upcoming Galaxy S8.

Allegedly, Samsung considered moving to a two-pipe design, but ultimately decided to stick with the tried and tested setup.
Back when the S7 launched, its heat pipe was the thinnest on the market - Samsung worked with its partners to make a pipe just 0.4mm thick. The pipe is responsible for taking heat from the chipset and bringing it to a graphite sheet on the back where it can be dispersed.

Heat pipes are often found in high-end computer coolers (both desktop and laptop) and have gained popularity in phones recently. Apparently, LG is considering a similar pipe for the LG G6. Anyway, Samsung is expecting shipment of the Galaxy S8 pipes to start in February.
