A user of Chinese social media posted messages on Sunday saying a friend's Note 7 caught fire over the weekend.

And South Korean and Chinese news reports said a second Note 7 user reported that a phone exploded on Sunday.

Samsung has announced a recall for some phones in China.

But it says other sales will go ahead because the Note 7 sold in China uses a different battery from those linked to problems elsewhere.

Samsung did not respond to emails seeking comment.
