OnePlus Nord 2 blasts…again

As seen in the pictures above, the alleged OnePlus Nord 2 appears to have malfunctioned owing to some fault in the left portion of the device. Because of some unknown reasons, the Nord 2 has suffered from this failure and not just the device, we can clearly see the owner of the device getting badly affected, as his thigh has caught severe burns because of the same. The owner must have kept the device in the right pocket of his jeans when the device supposedly exploded.

While this is, as we mentioned earlier, unfortunate and such issues have to be taken with utmost priority by the brand, we would urge our readers to wait it out for a while and see what the brand has for us in response to this accident. We at 91mobiles will try our best to deliver as legitimate information as possible and upon receiving any revert from the brand on the said incident, we will make sure to keep you posted on the same.
