The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, to be precise, which is the first widely available smartphone to have a whopping 10GB of RAM. On the fringes of Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui last week, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau told me that United States sales of the OnePlus 6T in its first 30 days were up 249 percent over the OnePlus 6.
One of the biggest inclusions in the box is a 30-watt charger with a striking orange power cord, which is based on OnePlus' new Warp charging technology.
This technology has been at the heart of all McLaren cars since 1981 when it was introduced to the Formula 1 auto design, before being integrated into McLaren road cars in 1993.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition design is the same design you've come to know from the OP6T, though with a flash of "Papaya Orange" colouring normally associated with the sports vehicle brand, integrated in a strip around the carbon fibre look rear panel. A OnePlus 6T carbon fiber black cover is included with the McLaren logo on the lower part of the back. Finally, there are exclusive themes and animation on the new device to promote the McLaren partnership.
But the McLaren Edition is about more than just a new look. The smartphone is powered by Octa-core (4x2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4x1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) and Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6/8GB of RAM.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is slated for in less than two hours.
The new phone goes on sale in North America and Western Europe this Thursday, December 13, with availability in India, China and the Nordics soon after. For one the McLaren Edition has an orange streak, and that's not a pun or metaphor it literally has an orange trim round the outside. That is not to say that another brand of phones will be used, only that there may be something else coming down the pipeline from OnePlus that has the attention of McLaren's higher ups.
The device sports a 6.41-inch FullHD+ display (1080*2340p) with dewdrop-notch and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. In honor of their history, a line of Papaya Orange flows dynamically along the bottom edge of this McLaren edition device.
