At the end of July this year, the long-awaited successor to the popular Nord model from OnePlus appeared on sale, which aroused more significant interest in a mid-range smartphone this year. The long-awaited successor to the popular Nord model from OnePlus appeared on sale at the end of July, which aroused more significant interest in mid-range smartphones. From OnePlus Nord 2, the Chinese company promised a successful continuation of its well-stocked portfolio. Still, not all Shenzhen companies seem to have succeeded.
When Indian lawyer and activist Gaurav Gulati came to work on Wednesday, September 8, he felt intense warmth in the inside pocket of his coat, where his phone was stored. He immediately took off his jacket and did okay – while still undressing, his OnePlus Nord 2 caught fire and exploded shortly afterward.
Gulati was lucky in misfortune because he did not escape without injury. A burning smartphone burned him on the side where he had it placed in his coat, and he also inhaled the smoke that made him have trouble breathing. To make matters worse, the explosion also damaged his hearing and eyesight.
“I felt like I had a death certificate in my pocket. I’m very happy to be alive, “ Gulati told LetsGoDigital. Gulati will certainly not let the whole situation go to a standstill – he has handed over the entire thing to the local police and plans to file a lawsuit against OnePlus. He also asked the Chinese company to comment on the whole situation.
Nord 2 has a problem. This is the third recorded incident.
She is relatively careful in similar cases and told Gulati that she would not receive a statement until she had personally checked the phone. However, this will not be the case, as the incriminated Nord 2 serves as evidence in a police investigation.
This is not an isolated incident for OnePlus. This is the third time in the last two months that the Nord 2 has ignited spontaneously without the owner interacting with it or connecting it to a charger. Suppose you are considering purchasing a OnePlus Nord 2. In that case, we recommend that you wait at least until the Chinese company issues a clear opinion on these incidents.
