New reports of Samsung Galaxy S7s catching fire

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) -

Samsung is doing damage control on its flagship Galaxy smartphones.

New reports have surfaced that other Galaxy S7 devices have burst into flames, similar to what happened with the Note 7s.

In October, Samsung notoriously halted production and sales of the Galaxy Note 7 phone after failing to correct a problem that caused the devices to explode.

Now, Samsung is trying to reassure customers other devices in the same family are safe, despite customer complaints.

In a statement, Samsung said: "There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices, among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States."

For now, Samsung is urging users not to draw conclusions about reports related to its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
