Samsung responds to report of heat-damaged Galaxy SIII

Samsung has responded to online posts about a Samsung Galaxy SIII that appears to have suffered some heat-related damage.

In a statement on its Samsung Tomorrow blog, the company says it will begin investigating as soon as it receives the phone and will provide further details when the investigation is complete.

A Dublin-based student reported earlier this week that his Galaxy S3 was fixed in his car “when suddenly a white flame, sparks and a bang came out of the phone”.

However, he’s subsequently noted that there’s no confirmation the issue was caused by a fault with the phone and “may actually have been caused by a combination of my car mount and my cars heating system”.

Samsung has provided a replacement phone.
