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

Mid-air scare: Cell phone catches fire on Delhi-Indore Jet Airways flight

Flight crew members responded to stop the smoke using fire extinguishers.

The handset, a Samsung J7, belonged to Delhi resident Arpita Dhal and was kept in her handbag under the seat. Sanjay Brahmawar, general manager of IBM Watson IoT Sales, said, "Users will be able to conduct crucial on-premise analysis, such as updating work orders or counting inventory items, in an intuitive, friendly interface on a robust and reliable device". "It was a mid-air panic. We prayed to god", said Atul, Arpita's husband who was with her as per a report by Hindustan Times.

They chose to submerge Arpita Dhal's devices in water as a measure of precaution.

Garbine Muguruza: 'I take every point as a final'
But I just wasn't sure about how I'm going to feel, if nervous or not, because still we are the first match on. I'm happy that I got it in the past, and now I'm not that nervous or obsessed.

Arpita was quoted by HT as saying, "I will complain against Jet Airways after I return home". This is a question of safety of passengers in flights. The phone explodes in just 15 minutes after the Jet Airways Flight took off from Delhi Airport. She immediately handed the bag to the flight attendant and after checking, it came to light that among the three smartphones in her bag, the Samsung Galaxy J7 was the source of the smoke. The other smartphones were also kept in the tray as an act of precaution. On this incident, a Samsung India spokesman said "We are in touch with relevant authorities for more information. At Samsung, customer safety is top priority". The reason behind the incident is still unknown. Samsung has been under stress over the past year over the Galaxy Note 7, with its battery responsible for fire hazard issues and the subsequent recall. Earlier this month, we saw a Samsung Grand Duos model was exploded in a man's pocket.

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.
