Why is iPhone 7 Plus overheating around the rear camera area?

I recently purchased it around two weeks ago and I've noticed that whenever I watch videos/movies or use apps that involve using the camera, the back (mainly around the rear camera) gets so hot to the point where it has actually burnt me! I was thinking it might be a battery issue but the entire back doesn't get hot, only the camera - the rest of the back is normal temperature, Anyone know of a solution to this? All help is much appreciated. :)

Is this a good question?

Sounds like the CPU of the phone is heating the back of the iphone a lot.


Thanks for you suggestion, sorry I'm kind of a newbie to this sort of thing. Is there anything I could do about that? @benjamen50

Your phone is brand new. I would go back to Apple or the retailer and have it replaced under warranty.
