Samsung Galaxy Note9 catches fire inside woman's purse

And this tech might also get inherited to Samsung's flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 this year or in early next year. Diane Chung, a real estate agent, said that on September 3, she was in an elevator and her phone became hot. She then put it inside her purse, only for her to hear a "whistling and screeching noise", with thick smoke pouring out of the purse. The phone allegedly had to be dumped in a bucket of water once the elevator reached the ground floor. This is reminiscent of the widespread issues plaguing batteries within the Galaxy Note 7 two years ago, although the company assures the press that it is now an isolated incident. Chung has now sought ban on the sales of Galaxy Note 9 in the U.S., according to her lawsuit filed in the Queens Supreme Court. As a result, she is claiming unspecified damages and a restraining order to bar sales of any Galaxy Note9. A fresh report suggests that at least one of the variants of the Galaxy S10 will arrive with a dual camera setup at the front and a triple camera setup at the back. As a comparison, the Galaxy Note7 had multiple incidents just weeks after it was launched and the device was recalled for the first time even before the Galaxy Note7 was a month old. According to the New York Post, the company is reportedly investigating into the matter, though it has yet to be informed of similar cases of the Galaxy Note 9 catching fire. The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a large 4,000mAh battery. "Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore", claimed CEO Koh Dong-jin in the marketing for Samsung's new phablet device.

While the incident is unfortunate, we'll remind you that there's always a theoretical risk for any battery-powered electronic device to experience battery issues including fires or battery swelling.

The report further states that Samsung is planning to introduce a new Galaxy M lineup that will replace the "online exclusive" Galaxy On series smartphones.
