According to multiple user posts on the OnePlus forum, OnePlus Nord smartphones will randomly get unnecessary factory resets. The problem is not limited to any specific area, but it seems to happen randomly. Several affected users wrote that their OnePlus Nord phones will start to feel warm in their pockets. After checking, the user found that all their phones themselves had been restored to factory settings. This also causes the user to lose all data after the reset.
Some users posted unsolicited factory reset issues on the OnePlus forum. On August 14, user 1UP announced that after restoring the factory settings, all data (including applications and settings) on the phone were deleted. Another user posted a similar incident and deleted all data from his phone after the reset, including downloaded music and messages. On Sunday, user jimod08 reported a similar problem.
So far, the factory reset problem does not seem to be limited to any specific firmware version. Although company staff have contacted most of the users, no fix has been reported so far. Android Police stated in its report that OnePlus is currently repairing.
In other OnePlus-related news, the Chinese company mocked the launch of the upcoming OnePlus 8T smartphone through Amazon and its official website, with the label “coming soon”.
