Samsung investigating reports of exploding Galaxy S III
Emulating Apple a bit too closely it seems
Samsung is looking into reports that one of its Galaxy S III superphones decided to go bang in Ireland, Reuters is reporting.
A consumer from Dublin posted photos of his blown up Galaxy online, claiming that the phone exploded while mounted to his car dashboard. Luckily there were no serious consequences.
"There's no confirmation it was a fault with the phone. It may actually have been caused by a combination of my car mount and my car's heating system," the consumer wrote.
Samsung said it is aware of the issue and that it is investigating the report. Once the investigation is complete, the company will release its findings.
The Provisional Apple Republican Army and the Real Apple Republican Army have not claimed responsibility for the blast.
