While Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco has barely died down, we have another explosion drama doing the rounds on the Internet. In the last couple of days, a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 smartphone was allegedly seen catching fire in a video inside a shop in Bangalore that refreshed all the blasting memories of Note 7.

The video shows a shopkeeper trying to insert the SIM into a customer’s phone, when it explodes and catches fire burning the handset’s entire body substantially. As per Tech Case, which initially reported the incident, the customer has since received a replacement for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 from the company. However, the case is now said to be unrelated to the viral video.

Xiaomi on its part issued the following statement:” At Xiaomi, customer safety is of utmost importance to us. We investigated the Redmi Note 4 in the images, and concluded that it was a case of damage due to a faulty third-party charger used by the customer. Nonetheless we worked with the Poorvika store where the unit was bought, and replaced the customer’s damaged unit with a brand new Redmi Note.”

“However, after a thorough investigation, we cannot validate the source of this video, as it has no relation to this case, and was not from the Poorvika store. In fact, it is unclear if this separate and unrelated incident depicted in the video involved a Xiaomi device,” the statement added.
