What Is Wrong With the OnePlus Nord 2?
Users have taken to the XDA Developers forum where the phone and subsequent reports are. One specific issue associated with the phone is that lithium-ion batteries can spontaneously explode.

Pros and Cons
OnePlus is quite compatible with limited edition phones. Most of the time, the company releases its limited-edition phones with slight changes from its regular models. Last year, the company released a limited edition OnePlus 6 “OnePlus Bullets Wireless”. Like other limited edition phones, Bullet Wireless has received widespread critical and commercial acclaim.
In the same year, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T “Star Wars Limited Edition” and a few months later the same phone was rebranded as the Star Wars version “Star Wars: One Sansa Gray”. When the 5T was first released, many thought the device was the Galaxy S9 which was released a few months ago. It became a huge hit to listeners and critics.
OnePlus Nord 2 (5G) has yet to confirm the reports regarding the Nord 2 explosion. This particular issue did not occur with the flagship OnePlus 6T. The company has already sent a replacement user and has upgraded the user to the stable update of Android 9 Pie. Unfortunately, we did not get any information whether it was because of the user or something else. The report stated that photos of the unit were sent to the owner. And only he knew the cause of the malfunction.
We should expect the company to release an official statement shortly after handing over the units to users. Also, a replacement unit is expected to be sent as well. Anyway, it looks like the issue has been resolved. And we can expect the device to be ready for customers soon.
