While nowadays smartphones are very powerful, they also come with a few drawbacks because of that, such as unimpressive battery life and high operating temperature. If companies want to have the chipset inside the phone working on its highest clocks, they need to use heat pipes.
With increasing amount of heat dissipation, smartphone manufacturers are starting to implement cooling systems inside the smartphones. The first and currently the only Samsung smartphone to feature some kind of cooling system was the Galaxy S7 series.
Sony's Xperia Z5 was one of the first handsets that incorporate heatpipe cooling and the main reason for that was the overheating Snapdragon 810 chipset. Motorola looks to incorporate the same technology in its next-gen Moto X smartphones, to keep the phone from overheating.
As chipsets get more powerful with all those octa-core processors and other integrated things, they also dissipate more heat. That wouldn't be much of a problem if smartphones are not that thin, so cooling the chipset is getting tougher and challenging.
