My Galaxy (A8) is emitting a constant beeping sound every few seconds. I tried the following, per various online suggestions:

  1. Wiping the cache (by entering into recovery mode)
  2. Closing all applications
  3. Reset the device
  4. Update the firmware (there was a recent FOTA)

Any suggestions as to the cause or the ways to solve?

After further investigation, the issue turned out to be that a card with an NFC chip was interacting with the NFC receiver in the phone.

While there were no open applications, this still caused a constant beep every few seconds. Removing the card, or disabling the NFC, both solved the issue.
