Samsung has confirmed it will investigate claims that its Galaxy S III Android smartphone may be susceptible to overheating, causing damage to the case and the devices within.

The Korean giant said it was alerted to the potential problem by online reports and pictures of a heat-damaged S III. It is attempting to get hold of the device in question for a detailed examination.

The pictures show burn damage near the S III's micro USB port, well away from the handset's battery.
