Samsung has launched an investigation into the safety of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III, after reports of one of the phones exploding in Ireland.
He reported seeing white flames and hearing a bang, later finding the smartphone had burned from the inside out and melted the case.
"There's no confirmation it was a fault with the phone. It may actually have been caused by a combination of my car mount and my car's heating system," the user said.
Samsung said it was investigating the incident and would release its findings this week.
"Our initial investigation found no fault with the phone, but we'll conduct further investigations to decide the exact cause of the problem," spokesman James Chung told Reuters.
Samsung’s flagship smartphone is not the only device to suffer from overheating. Following Apple’s launch of its new iPad in March, users complained the device was “too hot to hold”.
HP also came under fire last year when researchers discovered a bug in the company’s LaserJet printers that could allow hackers to set the device on fire.
