Samsung faces lawsuit after Note 9 allegedly catches fire inside woman's purse

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

Woman Sues Samsung After Galaxy Note 9 Allegedly Burst Into Flames Inside Her Purse

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

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might not be so fireproof after all, as recent reports suggest that the device caught fire while inside a NY woman's purse, destroying all of its contents in an experience the customer described as "traumatic". While some have speculated that the Samsung Galaxy S10 could finally be the foldable phone we've all been expecting, it's unlikely that Samsung will have its expected foldable screen technology on its flagship range, and will rather launch it as a separate product line. "She claims she was trapped alone in the elevator with the burning Galaxy Note 9, and was "extremely panicked". "We have not received any reports of similar incidents involving a Galaxy Note9 device and we are investigating the matter". The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a large 4,000mAh battery. After having to abruptly discontinue the phone, Samsung concluded that the fault lay in the Note 7's battery. She stopped using the phone, and put it in her bag, and soon after there were sounds of whistling and screeching from inside the bag, and thick smoke started pouring out of her purse, the report states.

According to The Investor, last month DJ Koh, head of Samsung's mobile business heralded the batteries found in the Galaxy Not 9, calling them "safer than ever", "Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore", Koh reportedly said.
