    It was not the battery but at least the charging port burned during fast charge.

    I was using the officially supplied Fast Charger which came with the phone.
    Seems the phone got so hot that it switched off. The phone was lying on the carpet while it happend. Luckily it didn't lit the carpet next tpo my bed while I was sleeping...

    I've put detailed info into this video:

    Samsung picked up the phone today, waiting for their reply.
    As far as I know there was no damage on the phone prior to the event. Even the Liquid Damage Indicator is ok.
    The Phone was 6 month old.

    Should I better use wireless charging overnight in the future? Any experience?

    I have two S7 Edge phones and go to sleep with them charging right next to me all the time. Never once was worried about them catching fire.

    I do have a wireless charger coming today though.

    I've only ever had a problem using the approved fast charger with a cheap charging cable.(i.e one from a gas station got a bad smokey smell and when I went to unplug it the plastic was moldable on the casing)Ones I have from 7+ years ago no problem what so ever (despite the end is bulky so I need to remove it from the case to charge but I digress )
