There are articles and tweets about this after YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss made an awareness video about it.


Please check your old samsung devices too, and keep it in a safe/fireproof sleeve/bag until Samsung comes with a solution or free battery replacement.

Comment below if u have the same issue.

It always happens to unused phones. I checked on my old phone collections and one of my old vivo phone battery expanded..

Not always, my iphones and huawei batteries are still fine, most YouTubers having this issue on their Samsung phones. I believe Samsung already started to find the root cause for this.

After watching yt from Arun, I did check on my S6+ and N10, and surprisingly I see my N10 does has a gap at the back cover, an indication or sign that the battery is bloated. Not much but enough for the cover not to fully closed.
I don't see it with my S6+ however.
@samsung, please have a look on this issue urgently as it's not supposed to happen especially on premier/high end model.

Good that you've checked now, I'm not sure whether this will lead to an explosion but its better to take extra precautions before something happens. Isolate the samsung phones from other phones and keep it in a fireproof container if can
