Samsung Galaxy J7 Catches fire in Jet Airways Domestic flight

Samsung Galaxy J7 Catches fire in Jet Airways Domestic flight

They put the handset in water to stop the smoke and any potential explosion. Soon after the flight took off (after 15 minutes) the handbag started vomiting smoke, then Arpita called the cabin crew for the help.

A Jet Airways spokesperson confirmed the incident but said it was resolved "as per guidelines". After a check, the couple (Arpita and her husband) identifies the phone as Samsung Galaxy J7. Representatives from Samsung were yet to respond to HT's requests for a comment.

Samsung had been spreading Nougat love for quite some time now, as many Galaxy smartphones and tablets have already received software updates this year. Atul also added "I will complain against Jet Airways after I return home". The Jet Airways' flight had 120 passengers onboard and it eventually landed safely. "If there is a major fire or blast what will they do when their fire extinguishers don't work like this", the Samsung Galaxy J7 owner Arpita Dhal said in a statement to the Hindustan Times.

It is a rhythm thing. "We certainly look to give chances to guys who we think have the ability to perform at this level". I don't want to confuse him too much [by] making him play in the middle order.

While so far this is a one-off incident and the exact reason behind the fire is still not know. "Jet Airways crew immediately took charge of the situation, as also all necessary steps as precautionary measure, and as per the prescribed guidelines", the spokesperson said. The South Korean company has been under fire over the safety of smartphones ever since the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco took place in September previous year.

The recently leaked Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 is now official, replacing the aging Galaxy Tab Active from three years ago and again targeting business customers. It is possible that Arpita's phone caught on fire due to faulty battery possibly from a third-party source, but it is all conjecture for now.

Since pretty much all developers are going to be more comfortable writing code on a large monitor instead of a smartphone display, it is certainly welcome that Samsung has made the app DeX-enabled.
