A Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Has Allegedly Exploded (But Don't Panic Yet)

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

"She claims she was trapped alone in the elevator with the burning Galaxy Note 9, and was "extremely panicked".

According to a report by the New York Post, the incident happened when the woman was in an elevator and her phone got extremely hot while using it.

The fact is that lithium-ion batteries, a type of technology used in all smartphones, are fundamentally unstable, and can overheat or even explode due to myriad factors such as stress, heat or being punctured.

A woman from NY suffered the shock of her life when a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 burst into flames in her purse.

Abe and Putin meet, talk trade and peace treaty
Xi and Putin, among others, watched a video of the days when the Chinese boys and girls lived in the care center 10 years ago. The four islands whose population stands at some 20,000 people are known in Russian as Iturup, Shikotan, Habomai and Kunashir.

The new incident re-surfaces the issues that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners faced two years ago. Soon after that, she heard a weird noise from her bag which she described as "whistling and screeching" sounds. Chung started pressing buttons in the elevator, and eventually made it to the lobby of the building, where she kicked the Galaxy Note9 out of the elevator. For those who don't know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 device comes with a price tag of roughly $1,000 and has a massive 4000mAh battery. However, the device did not stop burning until a passerby picked it up with a cloth and placed it into a bucket of water, the newspaper reports.

Another senior Samsung official Kate Beaumon had said that the latest Note 9 uses a newer cooling system for better heat dissipation. It follows the 3,300mAh battery on the Note 8, which has had few reports of thermal overrun malfunctions, and the 3,500mAh unit on the Note 7, of which more than 2.5 million devices have been recalled. To avoid future problems, the company created an eight-point inspection process for its batteries that, Samsung said, goes "well above and beyond the industry standard".

For its part, Samsung says it is investigating the matter but that no similar incidents have been reported. The Galaxy Note 9 has been launched in a number of markets around the world including India and has since received widespread praise.
