[Discussion] Redmi Note 4 screen bulging up (battery swelling?)

Hi guys. Has anyone experienced or noticed your Redmi Note 4 is bulging and swollen in the middle of the phone? I only started to notice recently because I felt the edge of the phone screen is touching the edge of the phone case which is weird. Can tell that the screen on top (earpiece) and bottom (mouthpiece) are quite secured on the phone nicely no problem, while the middle is slightly arcing upwards. Imagine looking at the cardslot area from the side, can see the screen is slightly swelling in the centre.

This reminds me of my Redmi Note 2 which battery swell up. But now in the case of Redmi Note 4, battery is built in which cannot replaced...
Sian thing is that my set is import set bought in Lazada, so its not covered by local warranty...

Now I am worried if its still safe to continue to use...

I tried to google in both english and mandarin, but apparently there seem to be no complains of similar cases so far. The closest similar pic i can find is something from Redmi Note 3

Does anyone know if the Mi service store opens tomorrow (25 June, Sunday) ? Because its officially Hari Raya Puasa, I don't want to go liao then its closed wasted trip... :(

Yours is Redmi Note 4 X20 right?

If so, it is export set and Mi service center will not be changing it for you even though you would pay for the charges.

Hello there! I recommend visiting an authorised service centre as soon as possible. The swelling of the phone means that there are certain types of chemical reaction in the battery which has resulted in producing gas, which makes the battery swell up like this. It has swelled up to a point where it broke my phone's screen protector.

Do change it asap!!
