Following the Samsung Note 7 phablets bursting into flames last year, making the South Korean smartphone giants to discontinue the production of the phone, there’s a new dramatic video that has been seen trending on Twitter viewed more than 1.26 million times, garnered a swift reaction, 24,461 likes, with more than 22,654 retweets and 737 replies, of a smoking iPhone 7 Plus.

According to sources by Mashable, Brianna Olivas says her rose gold iPhone 7 Plus exploded and began smoking Wednesday morning.

Olivas says the trouble began the day before when her iPhone 7 Plus, which she bought from Sprint in January, wouldn’t turn on. She took the phone to an Apple Store where employees ran tests and told her everything was fine. The phone appeared to be working normally again, Mashable reports.

“The next morning I was asleep with my phone charging next to my head, my boyfriend grabbed the phone and put it on the dresser. He went the the [sic] restroom … and from the corner of his eye he saw my phone steaming and [heard] a squealing noise. By the time he got over to the phone it had already caught fire, he quickly grabbed the phone and threw it in the restroom … as soon as he threw it in the restroom is [sic] blew up and more smoke started coming out of the phone,” she said via a direct message on Twitter

Representatives from Apple are conducting tests and expect to have a final report in a week’s time.
