A replacement model of the fire-prone Samsung Note 7 smartphone began smoking inside a US plane on Wednesday.

The incident has prompted fresh investigations by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

It’s a major and possibly costly embarrassment for the tech giant which has been trying to salvage its reputation following a mass recall of the original Note 7 model.

Samsung Electronics said in a statement it was working to recover the device and to understand the cause.

The public have been warned that Note 7 devices should be powered down and not charged while on planes.
