Its a problem with the charging circuit of the phone. There are a few different parts to it but one part regulates how much current the phone draws. If that isn't functioning properly, your phone will overheat and eventually shut down.

A warranty swap is definitely in order. Also, make sure you are using authentic or certified Lightning cables. You don't want to risk frying your $700 iPhone because you bought a $3 cable.
