The woman allegedly noticed her phone "became extremely hot" after using. Diane Chung said she was inside a building elevator when she "heard a whistling and screeching sound, and she noticed thick smoke" coming from her purse where the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is placed. 

She allegedly touched her Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in attempting to empty her bag and burned her fingers.  The smartphone allegedly did not stop from smoking until she got off from elevator and a person nearby grabbed the mobile device with a cloth and dunked it in a bucket of water. 

After her alleged "traumatic" experience, Chung seeks unspecified damages and restraining orders preventing the furthering Galaxy Note 9 sales. 

Samsung Mobile released a statement last September 15 saying that they have not received any "reports of similar incidents involving a Galaxy Note 9." They also added that they are also conducting their own investigation of the matter.

Koh Dong-jin, Samsung Electronics President said that "the battery in the Galaxy Note 9 is safer than ever. Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore." 

Meanwhile Kate Beaumont, Samsung's Director of Commercial Strategy, Product and Planning, also added, "We've instituted a water-based carbon cooling system that is unique to Samsung, in addition to the eight-step safety check we created." 

Reports say that the allegations of the Long Island woman can also be a destabilization plot for the South Korean company since the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 incident. 

We all should NOT believe everything that we see in the internet. Fact-checking has to be done and wait for the official reports and statements from both parties. 

All we need to do now is to wait for the result of both Samsung and the new York lawsuit's investigations. Until there are no further allegations of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 being "caught on fire", we believe that it is "safer than ever."

What do you think guys?
