He further added in another tweet: “OnePlus is in constant touch with us and the R&D team is working on the case. We are Cooperating with them to get this resolved asap.”

This is not the first time that a OnePlus Nord 2 phone has been involved in incidents of explosion. In September this year, a OnePlus Nord 2 user shared on Twitter regarding the phone’s Warp charger exploding while it was plugged into the socket. The company responded by saying it was a voltage fluctuation issue and provided the user with a new charger. 

I wanted to get this to your immediate attention. My OnePlus Nord 2 warp charger blasted with a huge sound and it blew up the socket. Luckily I’m alive to make this tweet. The Nord 2 is working. but this is scary af. I’m still in shock@OnePlus_IN @oneplus @OnePlus_Support pic.twitter.com/K3fXCyGzNp

In another incident earlier, Delhi-based lawyer Gaurav Gulati had claimed that his OnePlus Nord 2 exploded in his gown when he was sitting in his chamber. The incident took a turn after OnePlus sent him a ‘cease and desist’ notice stating that he has been posting false information to tarnish the company’s reputation and that the explosion was caused by external factors.
