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

Chung placed the smoking bag on the elevator floor and tried to empty it, burning her fingers as she tried to grab the Galaxy Note 9.

According to the New York Post, the incident occurred just after midnight on Monday, Sept. 3. When the elevator reached the lobby and the doors opened, she kicked the phone out. She placed the phone in her purse, and shortly after she heard a whistling sound, followed by smoke coming out of her bag.

Samsung and other device makers are looking for ways to boost momentum in a sluggish smartphone market. The device had to be discontinued within months of its launch. The latter recall was required after it was found that there were close to 100 cases of Note 7 units catching fire in the USA alone, as noted by Wired. 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. The company released a public apology for the same and stopped producing and supplying the Note 7.

Everyone remembers the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note7 saga all too well. For owners of all phones with lithium-ion batteries, be careful with your devices while charging (avoid cheap third-party chargers!), don't leave them in hot cars in the summer and especially don't charge your phone under your pillow or next to your bed.

Another senior Samsung official Kate Beaumon had said that the latest Note 9 uses a newer cooling system for better heat dissipation.

Chung has reportedly filed a lawsuit in the Queens Supreme Court while seeking a restraining order on the sale of Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

The plaintiff claims that Samsung should have known that the Note 9 was "defective" and seeks damages and a sales injunction on the phone. The incident, reported by New York Post, was reported by Diane Chung, a Long Island resident, who claimed that the phone caught fire inside her purse.
