OnePlus Nord 2 has been in the news before for an alleged explosion and this time again, the device may have been exploded in a lawyer’s black robe. This time, the device was resting idle and suddenly caught fire and exploded.
The name of the user whose device exploded is Gaurav Gulati. He shared images on Twitter which show the device completely damaged from all sides. MySmartPrice reached out to the person when he confirmed his phone was in his black lawyer’s robe when he felt something hot in his pocket.
As per the report from MySmartPrice, the phone was in Gulati’s black lawyer’s robe, and he felt something warm in his pocket with smoke coming out, and it was the moment when he realised his OnePlus Nord 2 was burning, and he threw his robe away. The phone later caught fire and exploded inside Gulati’s chamber. Gulati says that the smartphone was not plugged in for charging, and the phone had 90% charge left when the incident took place.
OnePlus has reached out to Gulati and asked him to submit the device for further investigation. However, Gulati says he will file a legal complaint against the OnePlus India and submit the device to the police for further investigation. He will also file a complaint to the consumer court and ask the authorities to stop the sales of the OnePlus Nord 2 in India. As per Gulati, OnePlus has been quite insensitive to the injuries and trauma he suffered.
“What is the worth of life of a person if he died by leaving his survivors. It is worthless. We have already decided to file damages against the company in a court of law. If they are ready to compensate, they can make a written agreement in the public domain or we will pursue as per law and ask them to discontinue the device OnePlus Nord 2 5G with immediate effect,” Gulati told MySmartPrice.
OnePlus responds on OnePlus Nord 2 Blast
The publication also reached out to the smartphone maker and OnePlus said, “Last evening, an individual notified us about an alleged blast case for the OnePlus Nord 2 on Twitter, and our team immediately reached out to this individual to verify the legitimacy of the claim. We take every claim such as this very seriously out of concern for user safety”.
“However, despite multiple attempts to analyse the device, including a visit to the premises earlier today to examine it in the individual’s presence, he has so far denied us the opportunity to perform a proper diagnosis. Under such circumstances, it is impossible for us to verify the legitimacy of this claim or address this individual’s demands for compensation”, they added.
This is the second time the device is exploding in India with a customer. The first time, it was a user’s wife’s OnePlus Nord 2 that blasted inside her sling bag while she was cycling. The woman had bought the new Nord 2 just a few days before the incident took place. The victim was said to have met with an accident and was in trauma following the incident.
