The Realme smartphone caught fire in a terrifying accident. On Sunday, the Realme 8 exploded when its owner was sitting, causing the disaster. Sadly, the gadget was in the pocket. Its leg was almost burned when it heard a sizzling sound. A man from India is the owner of the smartphone.
The Redmi 8 users took to Twitter to report the scary accident when the phone caught fire randomly in the middle of the night on December 25. The user noticed a sizzling sound as he and his siblings were seated; when he checked his pocket, he saw that smoke was flowing from the user’s phone. According to him, it nearly burned his leg.
“My Realme 8 EXPLODED ystrdy (25dec). I was sitting with my siblings when we heard a sizzling noise, I checked my pocket and there was smoke coming through my phone. It almost burnt my leg. Please🙏help me get a refund or replacement,” his tweet reads.
This disaster has occurred before; a few months ago, an eight-month-old girl died in the Bareilly region of Uttar Pradesh when her mother’s cell phone exploded while charging. Next to the infant, the mom had left the keypad phone charging. The phone, which was purchased six months ago, had a bloated battery and was attached to a switch powered by a solar panel. According to the family, there was no adapter involved; it was simply being charged using a USB cable.
Another instance apparently involved a Redmi 6A smartphone that detonated, killing a woman in the Delhi-NCR area. The smartphone exploded and apparently took the aunt of a person’s life, based on a tweet. The aunt used the smartphone and had put it close to her face on a pillow while sleeping. Xiaomi has replied to the tweet by stating that it is looking into the situation.
The user was killed by the battery explosion, which also produced photographs of the smartphone’s damage. The back panel of the smartphone shows that the battery has exploded, in contrast to the front panel’s fully bent and wrecked appearance.
