It seems like there is a special connection between Samsung and Fire. According to a recent report, an alleged incident has been reported saying that Samsung Galaxy Note 9’s battery caught fire in a woman’s purse.
According to the report, A real estate agent named Diane Chung filed a lawsuit against Samsung after her phone caught fire and burst into flames while inside her purse.
The incident took place while Diane Chung was using the all the new Note 9 in an elevator earlier this month. Suddenly her device became extremely hot, and she kept it in her purse. However, within seconds, she found some whistling and screeching sound plus she found thick smoke coming from her purse, and it was the end of her all new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 device.
The report also states that she brunt her fingers in order to pick the phone up. Also, the smoke was coming from the phone until a bystander picked the phone up with a cloth and dropped it into a bucket of water.
Back in 2016, we had seen the same thing with Samsung batteries with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. However, in this incident, Samsung taken back the device and later revealed that there were two manufacturing problems.
However last month only Samsung’s mobile business head said that the batteries on Galaxy note 9 is “safer than ever,” “Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore.” He has also said
“Samsung takes customer safety very seriously, and we stand behind the quality of the millions of Galaxy devices in use in the United States,” Samsung said in a statement provided to Mashable. “We have not received any reports of similar incidents involving a Galaxy Note9 device, and we are investigating the matter.”
However, we have to see if it was a problem with that specific device. Or Samsung Galaxy Note 9 devices have the same issue.
