Samsung is stopping the sale of all of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones. The move comes, following several fire incidents in the phones that replaced recalled models. Don Dahler has our report.

DON DAHLER: Last Tuesday, Kentucky resident Michael Klering woke up to the smell of smoke.

MICHAEL KLERING: Look over, and my-- my phone`s on fire.

DON DAHLER: He traded in his first Galaxy Note 7 a week earlier.

MICHAEL KLERING: The phone is supposed to be the-- the replacement. So, you would`ve thought it was safe. It wasn`t plugged in. It wasn`t anything. It was just sitting there.

DON DAHLER: Last month Samsung recalled 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 phones to replace the lithium batteries. However, the new batteries haven`t prevented all the phones from overheating. Dan Ackerman covers the tech industry for CNET.

DAN ACKERMAN: Initially, we thought it was simply a battery from a specific battery supplier. But these replacement phones have batteries from a different supplier. Then, obviously, the issue is somewhere else. It may be the design of the battery itself. It may be another component. It may be a combination of issues.

DON DAHLER: The latest incidents have now forced new action by Samsung. In a statement to CBS News, the company said ".Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 while the investigation is taking place."

DAN ACKERMAN: This was a big, sort of, flagship look at me phone with the curved edges and a screen that`s as big as the biggest iPhone. It was definitely meant to be their, sort of, big, big holiday push phone.

DON DAHLER: And it`s not going to be that.

DAN ACKERMAN: It`s definitely not going to show up in a lot of stockings for Christmas.
