OnePlus Nord 2 5G allegedly exploded in India – and this is it again. A fresh incident was tweeted along with some images suggesting serious injury to the user. While OnePlus hasn’t provided any details on the explosion yet, the user mentioned that the company has reached out to investigate the matter. Notably, this is not the first time a OnePlus Nord 2 5G has allegedly exploded. Similar incidents have surfaced in the past.
Twitter user from Maharashtra published images showing an exploded OnePlus Nord 2 5G block. One of the images also suggests that the user suffered severe burns from the explosion.
Initially the problem was reported on Twitter on Wednesday 3 November. Shortly after the first tweet was posted, the OnePlus support team asked the user should be contacted via Twitter direct messages to provide further information on the issue. However, the company has not provided any details on this yet.
However, on Monday, following media coverage, the issue attracted attention. Then the user replied in its original thread and said the company is in “constant contact”.
When we contacted us, OnePlus shared the following statement with Gadgets 360 via email: “We take these incidents seriously. Our team has already contacted the user and we are collecting details for further investigation. “
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G was launched in July as the successor to the company’s popular OnePlus Nord model. A little over three months after launch, the new OnePlus phone has allegedly exploded at least a couple of times.
In one case, OnePlus even sent a legal notice to a user who claimed his OnePlus Nord 2 5G phone had exploded.
Along with the phone itself, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G charger has recently exploded. However, the company blamed external factors for this.
The latest OnePlus Nord 2 explosion incident happened just days before the launch of the OnePlus Nord 2 Pac-Mac Edition. The new phone has been unveiled on Amazon and it has been confirmed that it will be available for Rs. 37,999. This is Rs. 3000 more than the top-end variant of the regular OnePlus Nord 2 priced at Rs. 34 999.
