OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is a $700 Super Fast Charging Edition

  • The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition packs 10GB of RAM

OnePlus 6T McLaren edition will be available in India in a special sale on December 13 at the OnePlus Experience Store in Connaught Place, New Delhi, which also marks the opening of the third Experience Store in India. On the inside, you will get 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and that's a ton of power for sure. The device is the first one for the Chinese smartphone company that is designed in association with the Formula 1 or F1 racing team McLaren.

If you haven't bought the OnePlus 6T yet you might be glad you waited. It is also said that the rear panel of the smartphone is made using McLaren's carbon fiber which has featured on all its cars since 1981.

The other design difference, of course, is the McLaren logo, which is found at the bottom of the back.

Just like the "regular" OnePlus 6T, the dual-SIM (Nano) OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition runs Android 9.0 Pie based on OxygenOS and features a 6.41-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition includes the "Warp Charge 30", which is the company's new charging standard.

Lastly, now that you have everything unboxed, turn on the OnePlus 6T and use the McLaren AR application to watch the images in the book come to life.

The smartphone is powered by an octa-core 2.8 GHz Snapdragon 845 backed by an Adreno 630 GPU for graphics crunching. "Our thanks to our OnePlus partners for capturing our spirit accurately and bringing unmatched power and speed in the new flagship device". While it does appear that Warp Charge is just a simple rebrand of Dash Charge, Warp Charge 30 promises to give you one day of power in 20 minutes.


The phone is supposed to be modeled after a McLaren MCL33, which isn't exactly the best McLaren F1 auto of the bunch, to put it mildly.

The OnePlus 6T starts from £459 which is good value for money. However, that's for a version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The limited edition OnePlus 6T phone will be launched in India at an event in Mumbai, that begins from 6pm IST.

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition was unveiled globally on Tuesday and the smartphone will be officially launched in India today.

But the question is whether the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition at Rs 50,999 worth buying? Or more precisely you're paying that much more for an extra 2GB of RAM and a different finish on the back of the phone.

You may not be able to afford a McLaren, but what about a McLaren smartphone?
