Reportedly, this was a case of battery explosion and it cracked the display on the front and peeled off the back panel as if it was burned completely. This shows how severe this was. Also, the images shared on Twitter show the woman lying in bed having blood all over the place.

It is worth noting that this is not the first incident where a phone exploded. Previously, a user’s OnePlus Nord 2 exploded while on a call, which did severe harm to the face of the person. This and a few incidents before did raise serious questions about quality control, while also keeping the brand going with negativity. However, this is probably the first incident, where someone has died due to a phone blast.

This appears to be as serious as it looks and may draw Xiaomi towards the negative limelight. Xiaomi is said to be in talks with the victim’s family to further investigate the issue.

We reached out to Redmi India regarding the same. The company hasn’t commented on the matter yet.
