Samsung sets new Galaxy device launch for October

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

A Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 smartphone has reportedly caught fire in a woman's purse in NY. Diane Chung, a real estate agent, claims that the incident happened on September 3, when she was in an elevator. Soon after that, she heard a weird noise from her bag which she described as "whistling and screeching" sounds. As she was alone in the elevator, the woman reportedly panicked and her visibility was also compromised due to the thick smoke. She then dropped the bag on the evaluator floor and when she tried to empty it, she claimed to have burned her fingers while she tried to handle the device.

"The mobile didn't stop burning until a good Samaritan grabbed it with a cloth and plunked it into a bucket of water", the report notes.

Samsung sent out invitations Friday for an October 11 event to launch a new mobile device under its Galaxy line. Chung, whose bag and the contents inside were completely ruin, called it a "traumatic" experience in the lawsuit.




It looks like Note 9 plans to continue the legacy of Note 7 as a lawsuit about a potential fire has come to light. Her lawsuit is seeking an unspecified amount of money in damages, as well as a restraining order that would prevent Samsung from selling the Galaxy Note 9. The issue, which the company says is the only one reported, has triggered memories of the battery explosions in dozens of Galaxy Note 7 devices. 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. "Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore", he said.

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". At 4,000mAh, it is the biggest battery found in a device that is marketed under the Galaxy Note brand.
