Samsung has urged owners of the Galaxy Note 7 to turn off the smartphone while it investigates new reports of the device catching fire, BBC reports.

 

The South Korean firm also said it would stop all sales of the phone.

 

Samsung recalled 2.5m phones in September after complaints of exploding batteries, but later assured customers that the replaced devices were safe.

 

But there have now been reports of phones that have been replaced catching fire.

 

A man in Kentucky said he woke up to a bedroom full of smoke from a replaced Note 7, days after a domestic flight in the US was evacuated after a new device started emitting smoke in the cabin.
