   According to the New York Post, Diane Chung claimed that the Note 9 started getting hot before she put it in her bag. After that she noticed a sound and then smoke. Her fingers were burnt trying to empty her bag. A nearby person grabbed the phone and dropped it in water.

Samsung introduced a multi-step safety check for their batteries. This was put into place after the Note 7 incident. According to Samsung’s CEO, “the battery is safer than ever”.

   Personally I would like to agree with Samsung. They seem to have this battery thing under control. But I am not ready to rule this a hoax just yet. People quickly took sides during the Note 7 incident and we saw how that went. For now, I will just say let the investigation run its course. The facts will come out about what really happened, and then we can judge from there.
