The Apple of China, Xiaomi, again came into limelight with another issue with its products. The company has been going through a rough patch in recent times with its own products- the Mi4i and the flagship Mi5 exploded in recent times.
Late yesterday, GizChina reported that a user from China reportedly claimed that the Mi Band 2 which she wore overnight scorched her hand and she even posted the photos of her hand, which clearly shows the blood in the area where the wristband rests.
This incident took nearly 20 days ago. On July 13, when she woke up in the morning, she noticed bleeding on her hand and reported to Xiaomi regarding the same. However, after 17 days, the Chinese company replied back to the user saying that the burns were not because of the band. That said, the user is pretty sure that the burns were due to the band.
As said earlier, this is not the first time that a Xiaomi product came into limelight with such type of incidents. The company's flagship smartphone Mi 5's battery was exploded in recent times and the Mi4i blasted in India when put into charging.
Having said that, the Mi Band 2 is the company's new fitness tracker featuring a heart rate sensor and OLED display. Xiaomi has already sent us a review unit of the Mi Band 2 and the unit was working fine. Stay tuned to GizBot for the full review of Mi Band 2.
Update: We received an update from the officials of Xiaomi saying that the product was Mi Band Pulse which burnt the hand of the user and not the Mi Band 2.
