Samsung Galaxy J7 catches fire mid-air on Jet Airways flight

It looks like Samsung has a new reason to worry about as the Galaxy J7 smartphone mysteriously caught fire in a Jet Airways flight travelling from New Delhi to Indore on Friday. 15 minutes after the flight took off, the family noticed the smoke coming out of the bag kept below passenger seat.

Emission of smoke from phone caused a situation of panic in the flight as passengers were terrified about this incident. The Jet Airways' flight had 120 passengers onboard and it eventually landed safely. The attendant was forced to use water to put water on the device and kept the Galaxy J7 in a tray of water till the end of their journey. "If there is a major fire or blast what will they do when their fire extinguishers don't work like this", Arpita told HT.

A Jet Airways spokesperson confirmed the incident but said it was resolved "as per guidelines".

Yet again a Samsung smartphone has caught fire mid-air in India. "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.

If that wasn't bad enough, Consumer Reports recommends customers purchase a Samsung Galaxy S7 instead of the new iPhones, despite being launched 18 months earlier.

This is not the first time Galaxy J7 has come under the light for causing alarm, budget phones like these sometimes have to face such issue. Reportedly, a women's purse containing Samsung Galaxy J7 started emitting smoke, causing fear among the travelers.

The iPhone 8 still managed to rank above the Galaxy Note 8, which while is shared the same score as Samsung handset, was still ranked above in the Consumer Reports leaderboard. We will know more once Samsung has completed its investigation.
