Samsung Galaxy Note 9 catches fire in woman’s purse

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 explodes inside woman\'s purse in New York

According to a report in NewYork Post, a woman in Long Island, US, has filed a lawsuit against Samsung alleging that her brand-new Galaxy Note 9 smartphone burst into flames inside her purse.

Chung's lawsuit, according to the New York Post, claims that she was in an elevator when her phone "became extremely hot".

She then chose to put it in her bag only to hear a whistling and screeching sound from her purse with thick smoke pouring out. As she was alone in the elevator, the woman reportedly panicked and her visibility was also compromised due to the thick smoke. She said the phone was still burning until a good samaritan picked it up and dropped it into a bucket of water.

Still unsafe Florence weakens from hurricane to tropical storm: forecasters
A mother and baby killed when a tree smashed into their house are among four deaths caused by Hurricane Florence. It's since slowed down even more than it had been - moving west at just 2 miles per hour .

Other rumors claim that Samsung will follow in rival Apple's footsteps and release three variants of the Galaxy S10, each in different sizes and with a varying numbers of cameras. Chung, whose bag and the contents inside were completely ruin, called it a "traumatic" experience in the lawsuit. It has taken great precautions in its battery testing, downgraded its batteries since past year, and implemented a new cooling system in the Galaxy Note 9. "Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore", he said. They added that they have not received any reports of similar incidents involving a Galaxy Note9 device and they are still investigating the matter.

Reports of a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 catching fire earlier this month may feel like cause for alarm after the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7's widespread battery problems, but at this moment the incident is just that: an isolated incident.

After the Galaxy Note7's fiasco, Samsung had stepped up efforts to prevent such situations from reoccurring. The latter recall was required after it was found that there were close to 100 cases of Note 7 units catching fire in the US alone, as noted by Wired. "All confirmed issues are related to pre-orders placed directly with Samsung; individuals claiming to be affected say they have so far only been offered a $25 discount code on their next purchase as an apology for the issue".
