Reliance Jio 4G mobile phone explodes while charging

By : |October 24, 2017 0

Reliance Jio 4G phone is yet to become widely popular with the masses, but there’s already a case of the phone exploding. According to tech blog Phone Radar, the Jio Phone explosion happened in Kashmir. The owner of the device hasn’t been named in the report but the device was examined by a local Lyf distributor who corroborated the information.

The now-deleted image on Twitter shows the back panel of the phone has been melted but the battery underneath the casing seems to be intact. The front panel also doesn’t have any bearings of an explosion. The blog claims to have access to a photo of the phone’s charger, and its wire is supposedly also melted. Citing a Lyf distributor who checked the device, the report says the battery remains operational.

In a statement, a Reliance spokesperson said, “JioPhones are designed and manufactured with global standards, and each phone goes through stringent quality control process. The said incident has been reported to us. Our initial investigation suggests that this is a case of intentional sabotage. The damage to the device seems to have been intentionally caused. The incident, as well as its timing, has been designed by vested interests to malign the brand. We will take appropriate action based on further investigations.”


Earlier, there have been many such incidents with the Apple, Samsung and Mi phones that have exploded spontaneously. These incidents can happen anytime, so it is better to use original charger and battery provided by the company.

The Jio 4G phone will begin shipping the devices in coming days to those who had pre-ordered the device in August. While the second phase of pre-bookings will start very soon.
