The OnePlus North CE has reportedly exploded and its owner has posted photos and details online
OnePlus Nord CE user claims his phone exploded
According to a post by Dushyant Goswami, his six-month-old OnePlus North CE exploded after he took it out of his pocket while feeling excessive heat. “I bought a OnePlus Nod CE six months ago. The phone has been working fine the whole time. On 2 January 2022, the phone exploded right in front of me. I was lucky that after feeling too much heat in my pocket, I took the phone out and within 2-5 seconds, it exploded,” Dushyant wrote in his LinkedIn post.
He also claims to have approached OnePlus, but the company has not taken action. In his post, Dushyant also mentioned Navnit Nakra, CEO of OnePlus’ India region, and the company’s founder Pete Lau. Meanwhile, OnePlus India Support on Twitter asked Dushyant to contact them.
This is not the first time that OnePlus has come under fire for blowing up one of its phones. In September 2021 and November 2021, there were two instances where the Nord 2 suffered the same fate as Dushyant’s Nord CE.
OnePlus Nord 2 also exploded a few months ago
The OnePlus Nord CE launched in June 2020 with a Snapdragon 750G, 64MP triple camera, 90Hz refresh rate AMOLED display and a 4,500mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging.
