New Delhi: With strings of incidence relating to the Samsung Galaxy series abruptly catching fire, Samsung is on the bandwagon of criticism following which, it has recalled the Note 2 for effective evaluation.
A similar incident occurred on Friday morning when an Indigo flight bound from Singapore to India witnessed smoke inside the passenger cabin. The fire had evidently started from a Galaxy Note 2 handset which was tucked away in one passenger's luggage.
"The Indigo flight 6E-054, which was soon going to land at Indira Gandhi International Airport, said that few passengers noticed the smoke smell in the cabin and alerted the cabin crew. The crew then identified that seat where the smoke was coming from," said the spokesperson of the airlines.
When Samsung was notified of the incident, it said in an official release: "At Samsung, customer safety is our highest priority. We are in touch with relevant authorities to gather more information and are looking into the matter."
