A New iPhone 8 Battery Swelling Incident Reported In China

A New iPhone 8 Battery Swelling Incident Reported In China

Apple rival Samsung had big problems with smartphone batteries in its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.

Both the rear cameras of Galaxy Note 8 are equipped with optical image stabilisation with live focus and dual capture. The front display panel had begun to rise after the device had been plugged for a couple of minutes, she said, causing it to snap open seconds later. There have been around five separate reports of iPhone 8 Plus screens becoming detached due to battery swelling according to The Guardian.

Apple confirmed once again that it is looking into these incidents, but it's obviously not a great look, especially in a market where Apple is still trying to establish a strong foothold.

According to the Apple Store Thailand website, the iPhone 8 will launch in Thailand on November 3.

Apple began shipping the iPhone 8 in the USA on September 22, with the price starting at US$699 (THB23,370).

This case was slightly different, though, as the unit arrived in this state, rather than as a result of charging.

Lena Headey confirms season 8 filming has begun with behind-the-scenes snap
This comes after Emilia Clarke's Instagram post in which she is seen dyed her blonde tresses ahead of the final season. Another GoT star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) recently confirmed that he would join the set this month.

Pictures taken by Liu and displayed on ThePaper's website showed an iPhone 8 plus split open along the side featuring the sim card holding, with the phone's internal parts visible.

What is Apple doing about this?

When Gizmodo spoke to an Apple spokesperson on Friday, they declined to comment on the matter any further.

Obviously, should other cases come to light then you would expect a more formal announcement. Once he realized that there was an issue, he packed the iPhone back up and returned it to the seller without ever charging it. On the contrary, we can only account for six incidents out of potentially millions of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models sold.

If it isn't behaving strangely, no. The number of phones claimed to be charged using power adapter and Lightnin to USB cable in Apple's box increased to 5.

In all likelihood, these devices are outliers with faults particular to their construction or components. Be sure to check back periodically to see if anything changes.
