Burning smartphones are always in the spotlight. The stories with spontaneous burning of smartphones are liked by a wide audience, of course, when they do not happen to them. Troubles happen with devices of all companies and “even” iPhones have shown their hot temper more than once. Another episode with a smartphone fire occurred in India by the Poco X3.
The owner of the smartphone announced that he purchased it in December last year. Until that time, he did not see any signs that it might have problems. And unexpectedly on April 13, while charging, the Poco X3 caught fire. The battery exploded, injuring the back cover and shattering the glass on the front.
The owner of the fire victim published the story of the Poco X3 fire on his Twitter page, accompanying it with photographs of the burned-out smartphone. Naturally, the main question that interests him is: who is to blame for the tragedy?
Poco commented on the situation today, stating that they are investigating the cause of the incident. According to the initial finding, the damage was caused by an “external force”. Referring to the photo, the company said that there was an external impact – the smartphone’s battery was damaged by piercing it. The owner of the burnt-out Poco X3 completely denies the fact of external influences and is convinced that the fire occurred due to problems in controlling the temperature level during charging.
Here is a reminder of the specifications of the Poco X3 smartphone.
