Rumors for the Huawei Mate V flip phone have been doing rounds since the company trademarked ‘Mate V.’ The foldable smartphone is now reportedly launching by the end of the year.

Besides the improved hinge design of the device, little is known about the product. However, recent leaks have revealed the design of the patented heat pipe used for the foldable smartphone.

The leaks are based on a patent filed earlier in 2020, which may or may not be a part of the design for the Huawei Mate V.

According to the little information available, the flexible heat pipe will span across the entire device, made of either Copper, Titanium, or Aluminium. The pipe will be made of a stack of thin flexible pillars, with dual racks of small cones, cubes, or spheres.

The heat pipe will function similarly to the long, flat, copper pipes used in many latest smartphones.
