Samsung Galaxy S III Spontaneously Combusts

We’ve all heard the expression “get ’em while they’re hot,” but the Samsung Galaxy S III just might bring new meaning to that phrase. An owner of the global HSPA+ model of the Galaxy S III claims that his or her phone burst into flames while it was sitting in its car mount. No one was harmed, but the once-white Galaxy S III came away with a nasty charred exit wound and appears to have taken on a lot of damage. It’s unknown what caused the phone to explode — maybe it was a third party car mount — but the owner was able to return it. The retailer will reportedly replace the phone after it discovers what caused the incident.
