Stop us if you've heard this one before: A NY woman is suing Samsung after she claims the company's Galaxy Note 9 smartphone started smoking and caught fire inside her purse.

Softpedia News reported that a lawsuit filed in NY states real estate agent Diane Chung was using her Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month when is started "getting really hot". Apparently Ms Chung then "heard a whistling and screeching sound, and she noticed thick smoke".

According to the report, Chung further adds in the lawsuit that as soon as the elevator reached the lobby she threw her smartphone out while it was still burning.

The woman then tried to empty the contents of her purse on an elevator floor but to no avail. The fire coming from the mobile device continued until a bystander picked the phone up with a cloth and dunked it into a bucket of water.

Reports of a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 catching fire earlier this month may feel like cause for alarm after the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7's widespread battery problems, but at this moment the incident is just that: an isolated incident. He said that the engineers at Samsung are confident of its safety, and that users do not have to worry about batteries any more. She stopped using the phone and put it in her bag. 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. Samsung claims that the batteries of all smartphones post Note 9 undergo eight-point check. There are no witnesses of the actual occurrence apart from the woman that's suing Samsung for "unspecified damages and a restraining order barring the sales of any Galaxy Note 9s".

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was launched with minimal upgrades and a lot of clarifications last month. Samsung's other 2018 flagship smartphones, Samsung Galaxy S9 + and Samsung Galaxy S9, offer 3500 and 3300 battery capacity respectively.

In an email to PCMag, Samsung said it's looking into the incident.
