The unpleasant incident occurred in Ireland. A white Galaxy S III bought from Carphone Warehouse was attached to a car mount when suddenly white flames started coming from its bottom. Scroll down all the way for pictures of the disturbing incident.
It’s just an isolated case for now and we hope it stays that way. Samsung has already released (...Samsung link...) an official statement:
"There have been recent online posts displaying pictures of a Samsung GALAXY SIII that appears to have heat-related damage at the bottom of the device. Samsung is aware of this issue and will begin investigating as soon as we receive the specific product in question.
Once the investigation is complete, we will be able to provide further details on the situation. We are committed to providing our customers with the safest products possible and are looking at this seriously."
If you own a Galaxy S III and it starts to overheat, feel free to share everything with us.
