Samsung Galaxy S10 5G was announced alongside the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. It is among the first ever 5G devices made by the Korea based tech giant. Despite all the measures Samsung has taken to prevent a repeat of what happened with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, a Samsung S10 5G unit has exploded in South Korea.
The owner of the phone said he had placed it on the table before he started seeing smoke and then it exploded. The attached photo shows severe burns at the back and front sides. The phone was totally damaged and the owner claimed that he didn’t do anything that may have caused this type of damage.
But Samsung believes otherwise. After inspecting the S10 5G, Samsung said it believes the phone exploded because of external factors. The company refused to reimburse the phone which sells at around USD 1226.
The Galaxy S10 comes with a 6.7-inch display. It is powered by Exynos 9820 chipset and has 8GB of RAM. Two internal storage option are available: 256GB and 512GB. The battery powering this packs 4500mAh.
