Replacement Galaxy Note7 smartphone ends up smoking in a US flight, Samsung in trouble again

By Team Feedbaac

It appears that Samsung may have a never-ending problem with the Galaxy Note7 exploding all over. And while users are revealed to replace their faulty devices, it happens so that one Note7 which was marked as safe, started to burn in a US based Southwest Airlines flight.

Passengers on the flight were evacuated immediately without any casualties reported. However, the Note7 burned through the carpet of the aircraft. The user of the device reports that he had the Note7 replaced recently, and was marked as safe. Once he turned off the device according to the aircraft safety instructions, the Note7 begin to smoke on the pocket. Samsung has stated that they are investigating on the matter to determine if the Note7 was the cause of the problem.

"Until we are able to retrieve the device, we cannot confirm that this incident involves the new Note 7. We are working with the authorities and Southwest now to recover the device and confirm the cause. Once we have examined the device we will have more information to share."

While this is the first report of a replaced Note7 being in such a situation, we do not think that those who have replaced their devices should be worried as this could just be an isolated incident. Stay tuned for more news at
