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". She put it in her bag and then heard a "whistling and screeching sound" coming from the bag, along with "thick smoke". In addition, she said that the thick smoke made it tough to see, and she began to smash elevator buttons. Once reaching the lobby she kicked the phone from the elevator. In her lawsuit, Chung is seeking unspecified damages and a restraining order to bar the sales of Galaxy Note 9. To assure safety to the new buyers, Samsung's head of mobile business, DJ Koh cleared the air by saying that Note 9 batteries are safe and have undergone an 8-step test.
