A court in Shanghai ruled on Wednesday that Samsung should compensate a Chinese consumer whose Note 7 smartphone caught fire ten days after purchase.

Samsung will give Yao, the plaintiff, 19,964 yuan (2,900 U.S. dollars) as out-of-court settlement, and repay the 5,988 yuan Yao spent on the phone, according to Jinshan District People's Court in Shanghai.

Yao said that in September, Samsung China made a statement that Note 7 smartphones on the Chinese mainland had different battery cells from those on the global market and would not be recalled, which led to his purchase on on Sept. 7.

On Sept. 18, the phone caught fire while Yao was playing games and burned his bed.

The plaintiff accused Samsung (Huizhou) of fraud and causing economic losses. Endi
