THE ONEPLUS 6T MCLAREN EDITION SMARTPHONE CELEBRATES DESIGN AND SPEED
OnePlus and McLaren have joined forces to create an even more desirable variant of the already excellent 6T Android smartphone.
The coolest bit about the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is its design, headlined by McLaren branding, a carbon-fiber pattern underneath its glass back, and the use of the supercar manufacturer’s signature Papaya Orange color. The retail box of the special-edition smartphone includes McLaren’s legendary Speedmark logo, crafted from the same AA-grade carbon fiber that’s used in the car manufacturer’s Formula 1 racing cars.
I had a chance to take a closer look at the McLaren-branded OnePlus 6T, and it looks amazing in the metal. The carbon-fiber pattern and the Papaya Orange bits make the newcomer stand out in a market full of great-looking phones.
The hardware specs of the special-edition OnePlus 6T include an industry-leading 10 GB of RAM for even more effortless multitasking. That’s a 25% bump over the already impressive 8 GB of available RAM on the standard OnePlus 6T.
Even more impressively, the McLaren Edition OnePlus 6T has even faster-charging tech than the already insanely rapid standard variant. Dubbed Warp Charge 30, it helps the phone get enough power for a full day of use in only 20 minutes. Rather awesomely, the device’s braided charging cable has a Papaya Orange finish too.
The rest of the device’s top-shelf pecs are in line with those of the standard OnePlus 6T. They include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, a sharp 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a fingerprint sensor underneath, and 256 GB of built-in storage, to name a few.
Sales of the McLaren Edition OnePlus 6T will kick off in a couple of days, on December 13. The smartphone will be priced at $699. That’s a modest increase over the current OnePlus 6T pricing, but given the design and hardware improvements, it’s well worth it.
