It's in Korean and the news just came in few minutes ago, so I don't think there's an English coverage

Apparently a tourist dropped his/her Galaxy J from the 3rd floor of the Departure hall (1.5m drop from a tripod), and the phone started catching smoke.

Security guards quickly extinguished it with fire extinguishers, but the floor was filled with smoke, which caused a lot of disturbance.

The airport has announced that the phone was of Samsung Galaxy J model, a separate model from the Galaxy Note 7.

Thousands of drop tests of various different heights including 100+ ft, phones aren't exploding and catching fire.

A 3ft drop should not cause a battery to explode.
