POCO X3 Pro allegedly blasts; company says 'customer induced damage'
A couple of days back, Twitter user Aman Bhardwaj had shared images of his two-month-old POCO X3 Pro which had allegedly blasted five minutes after it was removed from charging. Now, POCO (via 91mobiles) has concluded its investigation, noting that it is a case of "customer induced damage" as there was application of external force. Here are more details.
'The device appeared bent and the LCM was crushed'
"Basis our technical investigation, the device (POCO X3 Pro) appeared bent and the LCM (liquid crystal module) was in a crushed condition which indicates the application of external force. This is thus classified under 'customer induced damage,'" a POCO India spokesperson said in a statement.
