Share

A woman in Long Island has filed a lawsuit against Samsung after her Galaxy Note 9 caught fire inside her purse, the New York Post reported Saturday.

As per a report, Diane Chung had stopped using her phone when it became "too hot" and kept it inside the purse.

She alleged that she heard whistling and screeching sound, followed by thick smoke coming out from her purse.

Once she had reached the lobby, she had kicked the phone out of the elevator and fortunately, someone had grabbed it with a cloth and dunked it into a bucket of water.

Turkey raises interest rates to 24% in startling bid to curb inflation
Recent currency fluctuations in Turkey have political reasons, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday. The bank on Thursday raised its key rate from 17.75 percent to 24 percent to stem a currency crisis.

Samsung have taken a lot of measures with the safety of their batteries with not just the added safety check but also deliberately not pushing the envelope with battery size and/or charging speeds. Calling the experience "traumatic", Chung's lawsuit states that she was unable to call clients, while the Samsung flagship also ruined the contents of her bag. It should be remembered that the Galaxy Note 7 only started atching fire a month or so after it launched in the market and despite glowing initial reviews. 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.

Samsung's Galaxy Note7 fiasco is something Samsung has tried to put behind it. "Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore".

According to SamMobile, confirmation has come from the CEO of Samsung's mobile division DJ Koh, who told Chinese media this week that the changes to the new device would be "very significant", offer "amazing" colours and have an update that would please consumers. 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. A report of a Galaxy Note9 catching fire has surfaced online.

Samsung said the following in a statement after the incident.
