Solutions and Responses from OnePlus
When it comes to OnePlus Nord 2 blast incidents, the company has been quite “insensitive” according to netizens. However, the company has always responded on the issues. But it remains to be seen what is causing such incidents to happen so frequently. The first incident, the company said it was due to a voltage fluctuation issue, and provided the user with a new charger.
There was another incident involving Delhi-based lawyer Gaurav Gulati. He claimed that his OnePlus Nord 2 exploded in his gown when he was sitting in his chamber. This incident took a different turn as OnePlus sent him a ‘cease and desist’ notice stating that he has been posting false information to harm the company’s reputation and that the explosion was due to external factors. The company also asked him to remove all tweets and any other information shared by him on social media, and not post such content any more.
