OnePlus Nord 2 5G allegedly blasts again; reason unknown
OnePlus's Nord 2 5G has been in the headlines ever since its launch in July but not always for a good reason. A second blast incident has now come to the fore. A Twitter user named Shubham Srivastava has claimed that his father's Nord 2 "got exploded just recently." However, he has not shared any specific details about the incident.
Srivastava, with username @shubham754, tweeted saying, "I am very angry to say that the Nord 2 I got for my father got exploded just recently. He was afraid after this incident. It would have cost his life if he was using that (the phone) right away." Surprisingly, the said tweet has been deleted and the account appeared as deactivated at the time of writing.
We are truly dejected to hear about this incident. We earnestly hope that the untoward incident did not cause any harm to your father. We would like to have this addressed on priority and to further scrutinize this matter and ascertain the cause of this instance, please DM us.— OnePlus Support (@OnePlus_Support) August 10, 2021
