There’s a new smartphone with racing car-related branding in town.
OnePlus and McLaren just announced the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, a beefed-up version of OnePlus’s flagship with 10GB of RAM and a super-fast “Warp Charge 30” adapter in the box.
This new charger, which boasts 30 watts of power, will give the phone “a day’s power in just 20 minutes,” according to McLaren.
Other than the charger and the ungodly amount of RAM (note that Xiaomi has several phones with 10GB of RAM, and Oppo will likely have one soon), the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition has the same specs as the regular 6T. Namely, a Snapdragon 845 chip, 256GB of storage, a 20/16-megapixel rear camera, a 16-megapixel selfie cam and a 3,700mAh battery.
There are some visual differences, though. The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition comes in a new color, Papaya Orange, and has a carbon fiber-like pattern underneath the phone’s glass back. Other details like a Papaya Orange cord for the charger will also remind you that you have a special edition of the phone.
Joint car/smartphone branding isn’t really a new thing. Huawei has been launching special, Porsche-branded phones since 2016, Oppo has an Automobili Lamborghini Edition of its Find X flagship, and Bullitt launched its Land Rover Explore this year.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is coming to North America and Western Europe on Dec. 13, with the price of $699 or 699 euros, respectively. Availability in India, China and the Nordics will follow “soon after.”
