OnePlus Nord 2 News
Several incidents have been identified from the last few months regarding Nord 2 exploding in India. Not only one, but three incidents have been observed on Nord 2 exploding. In the recent incident, the explosion of Nord 2 gravely injured the user. The user’s name is Suhit Sharma from Maharashtra. On Twitter, Suhit Sharma shared the picture of the exploded Nord 2 and his injury.
The condition of the phone and the user, both are devastating. The phone was inside the pocket of the boy, and the explosion caused a severe injury to the boy. As it can be seen that phone looks completely damaged from the right side. It is one of the worst Nord 2 explosions that took place. After the incident took place, Suhit Sharma immediately share the pictures on Twitter to build awareness regarding the issue. After that, the boy also tweeted that the Research and Development department of OnePlus has contacted him and is still in touch with him. The company will resolve this matter. But still, there is no solid evidence that shows that the explosion was caused by some internal damage of the product or some external factor that influenced it. In the previous two explosions, OnePlus successfully proved that the explosion was caused by an external factor which was a voltage fluctuation issue, and provided the user with a new charger as the charger of the phone exploded. For another one, OnePlus accused the user of reporting false incidents regarding the explosion and ruining the reputation of the company. For this recent one, no verdict has been still made.
