Sony has launched a smartphone cooling fan accessory thats made to lower the temperature of its Xperia 1 IV under intense gaming loads. The Xperia Stream offers an array of extra ports along with working as a cooling accessory. Its open to preorder now in Japan for 23,100 yen (around $162) with shipping expected on October 14th.
Desire to with these forms of accessories, that have also been made by famous brands Asus and Razer, would be to let a phones processor run at higher speeds for longer, by avoiding the forms of high temperatures that may result in performance throttling. Asus gets the AeroActive Cooler because of its gaming-focused ROG Phone lineup, while Razer recently released an RGB cooling fan thats made to be mounted on whatever smartphone you select.
Sonys cooler plugs in to the Xperia 1 IV via USB, and will be offering four additional ports on its bottom side. Theres a USB-C port for charging, an Ethernet port for wired internet, a 3.5mm jack to add a gaming headset, and an HDMI port for outputting game footage to a capture card. The fans speed could be controlled automatically by Sonys software, or it is possible to fine-tune its RPM manually.
In addition to selling the Xperia Stream alone, Sony can be selling it in a lot of money named the Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition for 189,200 yen (around $1,330). The version of the telephone sold in this bundle has 16GB of RAM, up from the 12GB of RAM in the bottom Xperia 1 IV model. Its unclear when or if either the cooling fan or the Gaming Edition smartphone will undoubtedly be released in Europe or THE UNITED STATES.
