Another complaint comes up as Samsung probes Ireland’s S3 explosion
Samsung is currently investigating a report that one of its Galaxy S3 handsets exploded in a user’s car in Ireland, and another model allegedly exploded in a Korean schoolboy’s pocket.
The news comes as the electronics giant gears up to launch its flagship handset in its native Korea on Monday. A schoolboy in Korea was earlier reported to claim his handset’s battery exploded while in his back pocket.
In that incident, Samsung claimed the external pressure pre-empted on the device was what caused it to explode.
The Galaxy S3 is Samsung’s flagship device and these incidents would certainly put a doubt in the consumer’s mind.
