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

That seems to be the case yet again with the first report of a Galaxy Note 9 catching fire in NY, which could set of a chain of reports and claims, each of which can be true or not.

Real estate agent Diane Chung says in her lawsuit she was using the new handset on September 3 when it suddenly became "extremely hot", the New York Post reported Saturday. After putting it in her bag, "she heard a whistling and screeching sound, and she noticed thick smoke", court papers claim.

The lawsuit states that Chung was using her phone earlier this month in an elevator when it suddenly "became extremely hot". A man had to use a cloth and immerse the device in bucket of water to put out the flames.

Other rumors claim that Samsung will follow in rival Apple's footsteps and release three variants of the Galaxy S10, each in different sizes and with a varying numbers of cameras.

But now, German newspaper Sports Bild has claimed that Nuno Santo could be in the running for the Manchester United job. He tells me things directly. "But I have not read that he says he wants to sign for the club".

Of course, the U.S. being the USA, a lawsuit has now resulted with the plaintiff suing Samsung for "unspecified damages and a restraining order barring the sales of any Galaxy Note 9s". 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.

The new incident re-surfaces the issues that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners faced two years ago.

Her legal claim recalls the South Korean company's 2016 disaster with the Galaxy Note 7, which ignited so often that Samsung had to dump 2.5 million devices. Samsung are of course taking the matter seriously and are investigating the incident even though it is just a single isolated incident - the Galaxy Note7 fiasco did have to start somewhere after all. The Galaxy Note 9 has been launched in a number of markets around the world including India and has since received widespread praise. The report says that she was traumatised by the incident, and she was left being unable to contact her clients while her bag contents were damaged.
