Now, Lenovo has hit the headlines as a unit of Lenovo K4 Note seems to have exploded in India. A Twitter user @Vignesh3319 has posted photos of the exploded Lenovo K4 Note.
The photos posted by the Twitter user as shown above shows that it was a serious explosion. The smartphone seems to be in pieces. The details of the situation under which it got exploded remain unknown but it is said that the smartphone was kept next to the workstation when it actually burst. It is also seen that quick safety measures were taken to avoid further disaster. Fortunately, no one has got injured due to the K4 Note explosion.
