OnePlus has announced the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. This is the ‘fastest and most advanced’ smartphone of the Chinese brand to date. The device is equipped with Warp Charge 30, a new standard for charging.
With Warp Charge 30 you can use the McLaren Edition for a whole day after just 20 minutes of charging. Thanks to the new technology, the phone does not become warmer or slower during charging, despite the fact that 30 watts of energy flow through it.
What the McLaren Edition also makes a speed monster is 10GB RAM (the original6T has a maximum of 8GB RAM). However, it is not only the internal hardware for which the name McLaren is connected to the device. The design is of course also adapted to the car brand.
The design features the distinctive McLaren color, ‘papaya orange’, while a carbon fiber pattern is visible under the glass back. The design also plays with light: the McLaren logo lights up as quickly as the weather disappears, when light falls on the logo. The orange color also comes back in the Warp Charge 30 charger, which comes with an orange braided cable.
Extra attention was also paid to the packaging. In the box is the McLaren logo processed, the iconic Speedmark, which would be made from McLaren’s own F1 carbon. This would be the same material as was used in the McLaren MCL33 Formula 1 race car from 2018.
Besides the smartphone, the package also contains a book about the history of both companies. And finally, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition also includes exclusive software animations.
