Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 overheats with the best cooling system

Qualcomm’s letest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset is undoubtedly very powerful SoC. It can handle pretty much everything on a smartphone easily. In terms of gaming, it has the best processing power out there in Android platform. But everything cannot go perfect. Increasing the processor power to its limit causes heating to the phone. This is normal. But what if the phone reach at 50°C even with the best cooling system ever possible on a smartphone?

It happens to the Letest smartphone from Nubia, the Red Magic7. We know, Nubia makes gaming centric phones every time with the most powerful SoC on Android platform. They optimize the phone’s softwere along with hardwares to give gamers best gaming experience. Their letest Red Magic 7 comes with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the most powerful processor at this time.

There is no doubt that the phone is capable to push best gaming performance out there. But doing this, the phone was observed to be overheated. It happened while running Antutu Benchmark app. The phone overheated and the temperature reached 50°C.

Sometimes the phones softwere is designed to overclock the processor power when the beanchmark applications is running the test. As a result, the phone gets more score than normal. This is a kind of cheating. But I am not sure that it happened with the Red Magic 7. Though nothing is impossible.

Gaming phones is usually made in such a way that it doesn’t throttle within a certain level of heat. This can also be a reason why the phone overheated.

But it is not expected from this phone as it has the best cooling system ever possible on a smartphone. The Red Magic 7 has a built-in fan inside of it with 20,000 RPM capabilities. There is also Ice 8.0 cooling system from Nubia. In spite of having this such of cooling system, the phone reached 50°C which is not normal to be honest .

Let’s see how Nubia handle this in future. There are a lot of flagship phones coming in 2022 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Let’s see what others do to reduce the heating problem.
