Three days after an Apple iPhone spontaneously combust on an airplane in Australia a man is now claiming that his friend's Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket did the same thing.
BGR.com is reporting that one of the users on the xda-developers forum said that the phone exploded in his friend's pocket. The man doesn't appear to be injured, the tech Web site reports.
He said he heard a sound, [felt] a burning sensation on his leg and as he pulled this piece of junk out of his pocket he smelled burning, the forum user wrote, as being reported by BGR.com. There was smoke coming out of his pocket and out of the phone.
Prior to news of the exploding Samsung phone, passengers on Regional Express flight ZL319, which runs from Lismore to Sydney, were frightened on Friday when a fellow passenger's iPhone started smoking and giving off a red glow.
According to BGR.com, the model of the iPhone that exploded was the iPhone 4.
Samsung and Apple have been locked in legal battles across the world regarding patent infringement since April.
Back in October, the Galaxy smartphone maker said it will be filing infringement claims in France and Italy to ban the sale of the iPhone 4S. The iPhone maker has accused Samsung of copying some key designs in its popular smartphone.
Samsung has denied those claims, stating that it has a proud history of innovation in the mobile industry.
