According to the owner, this Galaxy S7 Edge got very hot even though it was not charging at the time.

52-year-old Seema Agarwal said that her Galaxy S7 Edge has never been repaired before. She purchased the phone on 28 December 2016. After several years, at the end of December last year, her phone suddenly got very hot. So to be safe, she placed the smartphone on the porch before going out. She didn’t think that her phone would be caught fire that quickly. Seema Agarwal said she always uses Samsung’s charger and charging cable.

After the incident, she called the police immediately and also contacted Samsung.
