Smartphones are going some unusual tests these days to test their durability under harsh conditions. Xiaomi sent the Redmi Note 7 to space which captured several images at 31,000m altitude before falling to the ground. In the latest test, Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO used industrial hydrogen balloon to send iQOO smartphone to space. The phone was brought to the altitude of 31,000 meters under the extremely cold weather of minus 56 °C. The phone continuously ran for five and a half hours without shutting down. Then from an altitude of 31,000 meters, the iQOO phone was allowed to freely fall and surprisingly, the phone survived with its screen still intact.
To recall, iQOO phone was launched on March 1 in China. Equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, the phone uses a 6.41-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. With 44W ultra-fast flash charging technology, the 4000mAh battery present in the phone can be charged in just 45 minutes.
The iQOO smartphone uses a multi-layer heat dissipation structure that consists of a 10,000-degree thermal conductivity heat pipe, a high thermal conductivity aluminium alloy frame, a multi-layer composite graphite heat-dissipating film and a curable thermally conductive gel that help achieve better temperature regulation while playing high-end games for a longer time.
