Another iPhone 4 has supposedly exploded, this one in Brazil, where the phone was plugged in for overnight charging. The report comes from the Blog do iPhone blog, which says the phone's owner had the device near the bed when it started smoking and giving off sparks.
If the account is true, it would the second report of an iPhone 4, Apple's 2010 model of its popular phone, self-combusting in the last week.
As reported earlier this week, a similar kind of thing happened Nov. 25 to a passenger with an iPhone 4 on an Australian airliner on its way from Lismore to Sydney. That case is being investigated by officials and by Apple. The company has not yet commented on the Brazilian report.
