Hope Casserly purchased the budget Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 phone in 2013 and the incident happened in October this year. She is a student of computer science at the University of Guelph in Canada.
“My back was to the phone and… I saw a light going across my shoulder, which would be the inside of the battery on fire. It hit the wall and fell onto my bed,” Casserly said, according to the CBC.
Samsung on its part claims that Hope Casserly was using an unauthorized battery.
