The smartphone is one of Samsung's older Galaxy Duos, which was launched way back in 2013. The video showed the phone exploding in the owner's shirt pocket – he fell down while trying to take off his shirt but was not hurt in the incident.

In India too, there have been reports of phones catching fire. Eventually, Samsung was forced to discontinue the Note 7, resulting in an arguably unprecedented tech PR crisis that, by some estimates, cost the company well over $3 billion in revenue. It was so bad that airlines forbade passengers from bringing them onto the plane, Samsung offered a recall and it brought into question the safety of the company's lithium ion batteries. Watch as the man struggles to remove his shirt after the explosion that left him a bit dazed. The victim of the incident - Yulianto speaks to Daily Mail and says, "There was a strong sensation of heat and I felt something start to shake". "Before I knew what was happening there was fire and I panicked". He then takes off his shirt, and is seen nursing his eyes.

Notably, Kuo points out that up until the debut of iPhone X, most Android OEMs were laser-focused on developing a viable display-embedded fingerprint reader - similar to the technology that Qualcomm and Vivo showcased earlier this year, and at least conceptually similar to the Touch ID solution Apple was believed to be working on for its iPhone X.

Is Apple Deliberately Slowing Your Old iPhone To Force You To Upgrade?
That's because as smartphones get more powerful and more capable with each new release, apps and services are also updated. CPU performance did decline in the results, but only slightly, and the graph leveled off from May 2017 onward.

Smartphone makers have always recommended its users to use only original batteries manufactured by the company, and not any of it from the third party vendors.

We sincerely wish for our customer's swift recovery, and strongly recommend all our consumers to use Samsung's genuine or approved batteries for the Samsung products and should not go for the batteries which are coming from the third party.

The man involved in the incident fortunately only received minor burns.
