Earlier this week, we have seen the Xiaomi Mi 4i burst while charging. Xiaomi had reacted to this incident saying the device will be investigated to check the root cause of this incident. In the official statement, the company also confirmed that the replacement was offered to the customer. Today, the Weibo post shows the busted Mi 5 battery. The white color Mi 5 which might be a non-ceramic variant of Mi 5 can be seen in the photos.
While the Mi 4i was completely damaged; in the Mi 5’s case, only the battery is damaged while the rest of the device looks perfect. As of now, there is no information about this incident except the images. The Mi 4i that was burst earlier also caught on fire but the Mi 5 might caused an explosion. The device was first unveiled at the MWC 2016 in February this year and went on sale in China starting from March 1st.
