McLaren OnePlus 6T Is the Speedtail of Smartphones

As far as hardware differences between the regular OnePlus 6T and the McLaren Edition are concerned, that's pretty much it. The rest of the specifications of OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition are the same as the original OnePlus 6T that was launched in October. Since none of OnePlus' premium devices come with expandable storage, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition sports a whopping 10GB of RAM paired with 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Its twice-yearly smartphone releases are always eagerly awaited, and there have been a handful of special editions thrown in for good measure.

"The McLaren edition is still based on the current OnePlus 6T device and it retains the same 6.41" Full HD+ AMOLED display with a taller 19.5:9 display aspect ratio.

It boasts 10GB RAM, and a new Warp Charge 30 tech. For now, though, let's talk about the McLaren Edition of the OnePlus 6T.

Speaking ahead of the event OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said, "McLaren and OnePlus were born latest - with a big dream to create something special. Our thanks to our OnePlus partners for capturing our spirit accurately and bringing unmatched power and speed in the new flagship device". The company said it a press statement that this technology was introduced to the Formula 1 vehicle design.

For starters, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition comes with an orange accent that nods to McLaren's famous papaya orange it has used one and off for decades. There's also a McLaren Badge on the back. This is created to represent the speedtail left when a McLaren vehicle races past - traditionally, McLaren has used orange as the colour for its race cars.

You also get an orange USB Type-C cable, Type-C to 3.5mm adapter, case and a glass cube with an actual carbon fibre McLaren logo inside for a touch of desk bling potential (or extra clutter).

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will be available from 13 December.

The McLaren co-branded smartphone's accessories are also "Papaya Orange" colored with the orange and black color scheme in USB-C cable and headphone dongle, a McLaren branded case, a piece of carbon fiber from McLaren's F1 vehicle and a hardcover book highlighting the history of the British automaker. In terms of functionality there are no new features in the McLaren Edition, that RAM isn't being used for a specific task; there's no enhancement in the camera or anything else, so it's just a boost in system resources.

"It's just at the door of the 5G era; [right now] it can't be like 4G, where you have one device that goes for all the carriers".
