seems that Samsung is not the only electronics manufacturer to face smartphones
exploding issue as it has been recently reported that Xiaomi, or also known as
the Apple of China, has experienced a couple of its devices exploding in China.
to a report by Central News Agency, Xiaomi has appointed a third-party company
to investigate two cases of explosions.
first case involved the large screen phablet, the Mi Max, which exploded while
it was charging. The phone was said to be charged with the official travel
charger before it exploded and damaged a part of the house.
second case involved a Mi 4c that exploded while sitting in the back pocket of
its owner. The man suffered 3rd degree burns as a result of the explosion. Both
phones were said to have been purchased from Xiaomi’s official online store.
is not the first time the Chinese smartphone maker has been linked to cases of
smartphone explosions. Back in early August, it was reported that a Xiaomi
Mi 5 exploded in China.
