A Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has spontaneously exploded inside a hotel room, causing more than $1,800 AUD (£1,028 converted) worth of damage, according to the smartphone owner.
The Australian owner of the explosive device claims to have been on a business trip when the smartphone reportedly combusted inside his room.
He described the unfortunate event on Reddit using the online alias Crushader.
“My brand new Note7 exploded this morning while I was still asleep, it was plugged in and charging,” he wrote.
“Phone completely fried, I can’t eject the SIM tray to retrieved my SIM or the SD card. I was using original charger and cable if you are wondering.
“Charred the hotel room bed sheet and the carpet when I whacked it down to the floor, burnt one of my finger while doing that too.” [sic]
