Galaxy Note 9 Reportedly Catches Fire - Note7 Nightmare Returning for Samsung?

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

A woman from NY suffered the shock of her life when a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 burst into flames in her purse. Soon after, she heard "a whistling and screeching sound, and she noticed thick smoke" pouring from her purse, New York Post reports based on the court papers. According to a report by NYPost, her new flagship device had combusted in her purse while she was in the elevator alone on 3 September. She tried to empty the purse in the elevator, burning her hand in the process. The fire coming from the mobile device continued until a bystander picked the phone up with a cloth and dunked it into a bucket of water. After having to abruptly discontinue the phone, Samsung concluded that the fault lay in the Note 7's battery. She is also seeking orders to bar Samsung from selling the Galaxy Note 9. She claimed that the alleged fire destroyed everything that was in the purse, adding that she was unable to contact her real estate clients due to her "defective" Note 9.

However, responding to this incident the CEO Koh Dong-jin has said "The battery in the Galaxy Note 9 is safer than ever".

The incident Chung recalled in her lawsuit came close to two years after a spate of battery-related issues led to the discontinuation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Lawsuits, settlements, and media coverage have made any Galaxy Note flagship, or any Samsung flagship for that matter, a prime target for claims of negligence or even outright wrongdoing. This is the first time that Samsung has used a 4,000 mAh battery in Galaxy Note series. A report of a Galaxy Note9 catching fire has surfaced online.

Samsung and other device makers are looking for ways to boost momentum in a sluggish smartphone market.

Commenting on the incident, a spokesperson for Samsung told the New York Post that "Samsung takes customer safety very seriously and we stand behind the quality of the millions of Galaxy devices in use in the United States".
