This may be the world’s first liquid-cooled smartphone

Ever feel like your thighs are on fire after an intensive session on your smartphone, be it playing games or doing other processor draining activities. Well it appears NEC has the answer, with its Medias X 06E phone, which comes with a water-filled heatpipe designed to funnel heat away from the phone’s processor.

While not exactly the “real” liquid-cooling solutions found on desktop computers, it will certainly appeal to those of us who are worried that our phones might spontaneously catch fire.

With tech like this, you might think the Medias X 06E  is designed with edges that will appeal to tech junkies, well you might be wrong.

NEC has decided to laden the phone with a bunch of special jewels and comes in a shade of pink or white. The company also threw in a garish-looking earring that looks like it plugs into the phone.

Aside from the niche cooling system, the phone doesn’t particularly stand out. It is powered by a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, a 4.7-inch 720p OLED display, LTE support, IP58 certified (likely to be water and dust resistant), along with a 13.1-megapixel camera. Expect the phone to be loaded with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).

While modern processors – the Snapdragon S4 in this case – does indeed generate a good amount of heat, a dedicated cooling system might be a little over the top. But if cooling systems are a sign of things to come, then this might be a good way to gauge its practicality.

Unfortunately, unless you live in Japan, there is no way to test it out. The NEC Medias X 06E is pegged to arrive on NTT Docomo in June.
