From the Verge, “Replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone catches fire on Southwest plane“:
Southwest Airlines flight 994 from Louisville to Baltimore was evacuated this morning while still at the gate because of a smoking Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. All passengers and crew exited the plane via the main cabin door and no injuries were reported, a Southwest Airlines spokesperson told The Verge.
More worrisome is the fact that the phone in question was a replacement Galaxy Note 7, one that was deemed to be safe by Samsung.
Best line was at the end: “He has already replaced it with an iPhone 7.”
Ouch for Samsung.
