We knew that the Samsung Galaxy S III is the hottest device at the moment (now in the U.S. too) but we didn’t think of it literally, like this unique specimen for instance, pictured above. It is apparently the International version of the Galaxy S III and it reportedly ended up in this stage while in an in-car holster.
It got sent back to the manufacturer for investigations and Samsung said: “Samsung is aware of this issue and will begin investigating as soon as we receive the specific product in question. Once the investigation is complete, we will be able to provide further details on the situation. We are committed to providing our customers with the safest products possible and are looking at this seriously“.
While phones melting down is nothing new, it is definitely not a good sign for Samsung. Let’s just hope it is an isolated case (read unique case) and the causes of “death” were not phone related.
