Galaxy Note 9 Catches Fire In Woman’s Purse, Samsung Faces Lawsuit

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Long Island real estate agent Diane Chung reported that her Note 9 caught fire on September 3, resulting in thick smoke billowing from inside her purse while she was riding in her building's elevator. Soon after that, she heard a weird noise from her bag which she described as "whistling and screeching" sounds. The smoke from the phone filled the elevator until she was able to get the door open and kick it into the lobby. Alone in the elevator, Chung kept her purse down and tried to remove the device, while burning her fingers. However, the device did not stop burning until a passerby picked it up with a cloth and placed it into a bucket of water, the newspaper reports.

Oh, no! Have the Samsung Galaxy's exploding battery woes returned? She is also seeking orders to bar Samsung from selling the Galaxy Note 9.

She explains the whole incident to be "traumatic", and mentions in the lawsuit that the fire ruined everything that was inside her bag. This is the first time that Samsung has used a 4,000 mAh battery in Galaxy Note series. It has taken great precautions in its battery testing, downgraded its batteries since previous year, and implemented a new cooling system in the Galaxy Note 9. "The battery in the Galaxy Note 9 is safer than ever", Samsung's mobile business head DJ Koh reportedly told The Investor last month. The issue was disastrous for the company, so it will no doubt be displeased to see a lawsuit alleging that a Galaxy Note 9, the most recent version of the large-screened device, has also ignited. "Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore", he said. A report of a Galaxy Note9 catching fire has surfaced online. The Galaxy Note 9 has been launched in a number of markets around the world including India and has since received widespread praise. Until Samsung comes out with its report, it's hard to say whether we are looking at a flaw in the battery or the incident is due to some external reasons.
