- A OnePlus Nord 2 unit exploded inside a lawyer’s black robe in India.
- The lawyer will be filing a legal complaint against OnePlus.
- OnePlus has offered monetary compensation to the victim, later refused by the lawyer.
OnePlus Nord 2 is in the news again for catching fire. A Twitter user named Gaurav Gulati claims that his OnePlus Nord 2 caught fire and exploded later on, and the catch is that the smartphone was not getting charged, but was sitting idle. This is not the first time incident of a OnePlus Nord 2 exploding. A few weeks ago, another Twitter user shared pictures of a burned Nord 2 unit, and the company said the incident was caused due to external factors. Meanwhile, another user reported the same, but it turned out to be a hoax. However, this time an Indian advocate has reported the explosion. So, let’s find out what happened with Nord 2 this time.
In the images shared by Advocate Gaurav Gulati, the phone can be seen in the damaged condition. 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.
As per the report, OnePlus reached out to Gulati soon after sharing the images on Twitter and offered to compensate him. However, the lawyer refused to accept the monetary compensation.
“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 in a conversation with MySmartPrice.
MySmartPrice also reached out to OnePlus India, and here’s what the company had to say, “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.”
As of now, it’s not clear if the latest OnePlus Nord 2 exploding case it’s true or just a hoax. But, we are following up on the story and will keep you updated as the story develops further.
