As Samsung’s Unpacked event on the 9th August approaches the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks continue. We posted recently that for the first time the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will support Dex Mode ( a desktop PC experience designed for mouse and keyboard when connected to a big screen) without being placed in a dock with active fan cooling.

Now a new picture showing the exploded device has revealed the secret of the new prowess – a much more extensive cooling system.

According to SamsungMobile.News the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature a significantly improved heat dissipation system with “almost half of the right side of the device covered with copper tubes.”  These “heat pipes” are generally used to move heat from the processor to a larger part of the casing where they can be radiated to the environment.

According to earlier leaks, Samsung is also making other changes to Dex mode, such as only supporting 5 windowed apps on Dockless Dex Mode vs 20 in docked mode, but this should still allow road warriors to be more productive while carrying less bulk.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be one of Samsung’s most expensive devices, crossing the $1000 mark for the first time.  Is all this engineering worth the price? Let us know below.
