3 replacement Galaxy Note 7 phones caught fire in the past week

Another replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has caught fire, bringing the total to three this week alone. After issuing a voluntary recall over the past month regarding the new flagship handset, the Korean tech giant sent out replacement units to those who were affected.

Just like the replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 of Brian Green, Ms Lai's released smoke.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the Consumer Product Safety Commission are now investigating the latest incident.

Klering says at that point he chose to take matters into his own hands and contact WKYT.

And while there has been no news about the device on the official front, some sources claim to already have information about it, and if the rumors are true, it looks like Samsung are planning something particularly special.

"We thought we were safe with the new phone", Zuis said.

Last week, we reported that a replacement Note 7 exploded on a Southwest aircraft, which followed other reported incidents. A check of the device's IMEI on Samsung's Web site indicated that the phone, which Green said he had picked up on September 21, was not on the company's recall list, according to the Verge. Needless to say, the article caused a lot of controversy, especially given Samsung's latest problems with the Note 7. If you really want a Galaxy Note 7, perhaps you may want to wait a little so Samsung can work out all the quirks.

Green said the battery was charged to about 80 percent capacity when he turned it off for the flight and that he had only charged it wirelessly since he obtained the replacement phone. He said he first heard "popping", like a ziplocked bag popping open, and sizzling sounds before "there was smoke just billowing, pouring out of my pocket". The cabin crew was quick enough to evacuate the aircraft, but when one passenger went to get his personal belongings, the device had burned into a crisp, damaging the floor carpet of the aircraft.

Unfortunately, it seems like Samsung not only intentionally didn't disclose the incident, but took steps to keep it under wraps. "We still encourage customers with a recalled Note 7 to visit an AT&T location to exchange that device for another Samsung smartphone or other smartphone of their choice", AT&T spokesman Fletcher Cook said.

Green said he had no problems with the replacement until October 5, when the smoke caused him to pull the device from the front pocket of his jeans.

Samsung Taiwan reached Lai on Saturday night to offer her an alternative smartphone and clarify the cause of the incident.
