Samsung J7 Catches Fire on Delhi-Indore Flight, Causes Mid-air Panic



After several reports of Galaxy Note 7 explosion in 2016, several airlines all over the world have banned carrying it on their flights. However, the company came back hard with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus devices. It even introduced the new 8-point battery safety check process to provide safer batteries with their new devices. While all seems good with the Samsung smartphones, now the mid-range Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone has exploded mid-air on the Indore-bound flight.

A couple with their 18-month old son were flying from Delhi to Indore on a Jet Airways flight on Friday. While the couple are carrying three smartphones in their hand baggage, one smartphone was exploded causing panic among the passengers. The incident took place just 15 minutes after the flight took off from Delhi airport. The flight attendants who were serving snacks at that time tried to put off the flames using the fire extinguisher.

As the fire extinguisher malfunctioned at that time, the crew has placed the device in a tray of water. Later, the exploded device was identified as Galaxy J7. Samsung is yet to issue any statement on this incident. In the recent times, the manufacturers are offering higher battery capacities in order to provide better battery life. While the brand sells the devices after thorough quality check, the user should also opt for genuine replacements to be a safer side.

Amazon Italy has recently put a ban on Xiaomi smartphones after the resellers offering unsafe charges with the devices. A few reports also suggest the battery issues on the newly launched Apple iPhone 8. The swollen batteries on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are causing the display to come out of the frame. We will update this article, once we came to know about the cause of this incident.
