As noted, OnePlus also announced a new McLaren Edition of the OnePlus 7T Pro. The phone features 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, along with a slightly different design on the rear panel compared to the standard OnePlus 7T Pro. Having said that, OnePlus did not add many features to the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition. To recall, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition arrived with faster charging, more RAM and storage and the retail box had many additional accessories as well.
