Continuing the tradition of launching special editions of its smartphones, OnePlus today has partnered with British Formula One racing team McLaren to unveil the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. The Chinese smartphone maker had previously partnered with entertainment brands Disney and Marvel to launch the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition and OnePlus 6 Avengers Edition respectively. The 6T McLaren Edition comes with a few upgraded internals and design changes.
The special variant of the device features a signature Papaya Orange color (similar to McLaren’s F1 car) around the bottom edges of the device. The back panel sports a carbon fibre pattern. There is also McLaren branding at the bottom.
In terms of hardware, the 6T McLaren Edition is equipped with a massive 10GB RAM, compared to the top-end OnePlus 6T model that comes with 8GB RAM. It offers 256GB internal memory. The device also features 30W Warp Charge (vs 20W for Dash Charge) technology which claims to deliver a day’s charge in 20 minutes. Unlike the red cable in regular OnePlus chargers, the McLaren Edition will come with a Papaya Orange braided cord cable. The device is also loaded with exclusive software animations.
The remaining specifications remain the same as the regular OnePlus 6T. The device features a 6.4-inch display with waterdrop notch and an in-display fingerprint scanner. It has a Snapdragon 845 chipset and is powered by a 3,700mAh battery. There is a dual camera setup, 16MP selfie camera and a USB Type-C port.
Inside the box, the 6T McLaren Edition comes with a bundled McLaren logo made up of F1 AA grade carbon fiber. There is also a book included, which celebrates the history of both the companies.
