A second OnePlus Nord 2 exploded in the hands of a user. According to the testimony of an internet user, the phone suddenly caught fire, seriously injuring its owner. Contacted by Twitter, the Chinese brand has pledged to open an investigation.
According to Shubham Srivastava, a Twitter user, the OnePlus Nord 2 offered to his father suddenly exploded for no apparent reason. “I’m angry to explain that the OnePlus Nord 2 I bought from my dad recently exploded”, explains Shubham Srivastava, assuring that his father was injured in the explosion.
The man was obviously using the phone when his battery caught fire. “He is one of the government officials and was traveling abroad. Now he is bedridden. He borrowed a colleague’s phone to let me know”, testifies the internet user. That’s why he failed to insert photos from the damaged device into his tweets.
