Samsung Galaxy Note 9 catches fire in woman's purse

Samsung Galaxy J4 to get a Plus edition soon

Ironically, the incident comes barely a month after DJ Koh, head of Samsung's mobile business had promised consumers the batteries on the new Galaxy Note 9 are "safer than ever" and it goes "well above and beyond the industry standard".

The 4,000mAh cell on the Galaxy Note 9 is the largest to be featured on the Note series of devices.

According to the report, the woman claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 had gotten extremely hot while she was using it.

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. According to a report by NYPost, her new flagship device had combusted in her purse while she was in the elevator alone on 3 September.

The real estate women Diane Chung claimed in her lawsuit that her Samsung Galaxy Note 9 became "extremely hot" while she was in an elevator, reports New York Post.

Everyone remembers the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note7 saga all too well.

Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 more risky than we thought? If Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 suffers the same fate as Note 7, the company might have to consider discontinuing the entire line-up.

She then made a decision to put it in her bag only to hear a whistling and screeching sound from her purse with thick smoke pouring out. A report of a Galaxy Note9 catching fire has surfaced online. The smoke and sounds only stopped after a man picked up the phone with a piece of cloth and put it in a bucket full of water.

In an email to PCMag, Samsung said it's looking into the incident. It has taken great precautions in its battery testing, downgraded its batteries since past year, and implemented a new cooling system in the Galaxy Note 9. The Galaxy Note 9 has been launched in a number of markets around the world including India and has since received widespread praise.
