Samsung, the South Korean multinational company has been on Cloud No. 9 these days, since the smash hit opening of Samsung Galaxy S III, the Android based smartphone and some way or the other it anyhow finds its way in the news. The company has done it again, but the scenario is different and somehow that news is not a good one. A Galaxy S III user placed the device in an in-car holster and bang!! The device broke down and caught fire. The phone case started melting and the phone lost all the function. A source on this very incident that led to Samsung Galaxy S III fire, reported that the lower part of the handset contains significant burn marks from where the casing started to melt. The damaged area is slightly removed from the charging point. The damage has not only been done to the exterior but has significantly affected the interior as main features of the phone became unusable though the display looked unaffected.
The burnt Galaxy S III has been taken for repair and Samsung now knows of the situation and so does the world. And because of that, the company has issued a public statement saying that the company is fully aware of the current situation. An investigation will begin as soon as they receive the malfunctioned model. “We are committed to providing all our customers with the safest products possible and are looking at this seriously,” the statement read. And this is certainly not the first time that a cellphone has malfunctioned. The Samsung Galaxy S III incident has again brought out the very intense but often overlooked situation of smartphone safety. We hope that Samsung does not waste any time in rectifying what led to the malfunction.
