OnePlus had just announced the special McLaren Edition of the recently launched flagship- OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edtion is made in partnership with McLaren which marks the start of a long-term partnership, celebrating two brand’s philosophies – to “Never Settle” and to move “Fearlessly Forward.”
One major change from the OnePlus 6T is the inclusion of the new charging technology Warp Charge 30, OnePlus’ new charging standard. Warp Charge 30 offers a day’s power in just 20 minutes. With the new Integrated Circuits in both the charger and the phone, power management software, 30 watts of power flow to the handset without slowing down even when the device is being used or generating excessive heat. Another change is in the look, the McLaren Edition comes with signature McLaren color, Papaya Orange races around the bottom edge of the device before fading into the black. The pattern underneath the glass back of the phone is based on McLaren’s carbon fiber, the technology at the heart of all McLaren cars since 1981 when it was introduced to the Formula 1 car design, before being integrated into McLaren road cars in 1993. While light streaks across the McLaren logo, illuminating and disappearing in an instant. The Warp Charge 30 power unit includes a Papaya Orange braided cord cable. OnePlus and McLaren are giving a great box content- in the box is McLaren’s logo, the iconic Speedmark, recreated in McLaren-designed F1 AA grade carbon fiber – the same material used in the McLaren MCL33 2018 Formula 1 car.
Finally, there is one more upgrade the RAM department- this edition of the OnePlus 6T comes with whopping 10GB RAM and also 256GB of storage. Rest of the features including the camera department remains the same.
