Smartphones bursting into flames have been the worst nightmare of many people across the globe. Primarily fuelled by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco that took place last year, the fear of a smartphone blowing up is reignited every now and then, with reports of various smartphones catching fire. Now a similar video has been uploaded on YouTube that shows a smartphone bursting into flames, as its operator tries to put the fire out by stomping on the device repeatedly. Surprisingly, the incident took place in a mobile store this time and was caught on the store’s CCTV.

Naturally, the question arises, which smartphone was it? Though this cannot be easily deciphered from the CCTV footage, Phone Radar claims the smartphone to be a Xiaomi’s offering – the Redmi Note 4. The concerned user has also posted some pictures of the completely destroyed device, clearly showing a totally burnt up Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 but the authenticity of the images cannot be confirmed. Xiaomi India has been reportedly looking into the issue and has not made any official statement as of now.
