We will significantly improve the safety and quality of our new flagship smartphones as more consumers seek safe smartphones.
Incidentally, the Note 7 also featured the same cooling system, but that didn't prevent it from inexplicably catching on fire. Which is why LG is saying that it will also conduct rigorous battery tests to ensure the phone doesn't overheat:
We are conducting battery heat exposure tests to a temperature 15 percent higher than the temperature set by the international standards of the US and Europe.
The battery also undergoes diverse tests such as piercing it with a sharp nail or dropping a heavy object on it from a high place.
What LG is doing isn't exactly new. All manufacturers do stringent quality tests to ensure that their phones are safe to use. But with the Note 7 debacle, we'll be hearing more about the process, and that's a good sign. The LG G6 slated to make its debut next month at Mobile World Congress.
