Another Redmi phone catches fire in India, this time a Redmi Note 12 Pro

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro

According to reports, a man’s smartphone caught fire in his shirt pocket. This comes just after an unfortunate incident involving an alleged Redmi Note 5 Pro explosion in India that led to the tragic death of an 8-year-old girl.

The man in question, Naveen Dahiya, purchased his Redmi Note 12 Pro in February of this year. On April 11, he noticed smoke coming from the device while it was in his shirt pocket. He felt a burning sensation and discovered the phone was on fire. Fortunately, he was able to remove the phone from his pocket before it caused any harm to his skin.

It is unclear what caused the fire on the Redmi Note 12 Pro, as it was not being charged at the time. The phone was completely destroyed by the fire, but Dahiya was unharmed. He contacted Redmi customer service, but was dissatisfied with their response. He has threatened to take legal action against the company if he does not receive a satisfactory response.

It is crucial for Redmi to investigate this incident to ensure the safety of its users. It is expected that the company will issue an official response to this incident soon, amid concerns that other units may be at risk of catching fire. This serves as a reminder to users that smartphones can be dangerous if they malfunction. It is important to take precautions, such as not overcharging the phone or exposing it to extreme heat.
