Another Xiaomi phone exploded, this time it was the Redmi Note 7 Pro
- Tram Ho
According to a man named Song Yujie, living in Henan Province (China), the Redmi Note 7 Pro that he bought for his father suddenly exploded and caught fire without any cause. Reportedly, Song Yujie ordered this phone on July 24. It worked well until November 27, then caught fire naturally, as of now, it has been just 3 months.
Song Yujie said his father used the aforementioned Redmi Note 7 Pro to watch videos on YouTube while lying in a blanket. Later, he fell asleep but suddenly woke up after smelling the burning smell and realized his phone was on fire.
Fortunately, there were no major casualties, except that the blanket was burnt and Song Yujie's father suffered a minor burn while trying to extinguish the fire. Looking at the photo above, you can easily see that the Redmi Note 7 Pro has been completely broken, breaking into parts after being burnt.
Answering the reporter on November 28, a customer care staff of Xiaomi said that Song Yujie's Redmi Note 7 Pro was burnt not due to the company's fault. In other words, the Chinese manufacturer believes that this problem is caused by external impacts, not related to the quality of the smartphone it sells. Although the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with an 18-month warranty, it does not come under warranty.
More interestingly, this is the second case recorded in November about the Xiaomi phone self-igniting when in use. A few days ago, the Redmi Note 7S of a man named Chavhan Ishwar (living in India) also happened similarly and Xiaomi also denied responsibility. "After thorough investigation, we concluded that the fire occurred due to external forces and was classified as 'customer-induced damage'," Xiaomi said .
