07 Sep 2021: 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.

Fact: '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.
