OnePlus has always been introducing a special edition of its phones with every release of the flagship. Previously, we have seen OnePlus partner with other brands for launching the Star Wars special edition and Marvel special edition of its phone. Now with the OnePlus 6T, the Chinese manufacturer’s latest flagship phone out in the market, the company is partnering up with the automobile manufacturer McLaren to bring in a special edition of its phone. The new McLaren special edition of the OnePlus 6T will first be launched in Woking, London on December 11, 2018, followed by another launch event in Mumbai, India on December 12, 2018.


‘Salute to Speed’ Partnership of OnePlus with McLaren

OnePlus has titled its partnership with McLaren as ‘Salute to Speed’, and the partnership will inculcate both McLaren Automotive and McLaren Racing, which has been one of the most highly acclaimed teams in the F1 racing world. Followed by the London launch event of this new phone, the Indian launch event will be held in Mumbai on December 12 at Richardson & Cruddas, Byculla, Mumbai at 6 PM IST.

Like we mentioned above, this is not the first time that OnePlus is partnering up with another brand to bring in a special edition of its flagship. Previously, we have seen the Chinese OEM partner with Parisian retailer Colette for debuting the OnePlus 3T x Colette 20th Anniversary Edition, with Jean-Charles de Castelbajac for the OnePlus 5 x JCC+Limited Edition, with Marvel for the OnePlus 6 x Marvel Avengers Limited Edition, and also with Star Wars for the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition.

Lately, more and more smartphone manufacturers have been partnering up with automotive brands to launch special edition smartphones. We recently witnessed Huawei team up with Porsche for the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design while Oppo partnered up with Lamborghini for launching the Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition. The main reason for these partnerships has been the exquisite design of these smartphones, which comes off as the main selling point for these devices. Further, they come with unique customisations and a slightly higher price tag. As for this upcoming McLaren OnePlus 6T edition, we have not yet seen any details about the device, but we expect it to carry the car manufacturer’s logo on the back along with some UI customisations.

Also, OnePlus has recently launched the Thunder Purple variant of the OnePlus 6T which comes in a two-colour gradient which changes colour as light falls on the surface. This new Thunder Purple variant debuted with a Rs 41,999 price tag featuring 8GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage.

OnePlus 6T Specifications

The OnePlus 6T features a 6.41-inch display rendering a full-HD+ 1080×2340 pixels resolution with Optic AMOLED. The screen comes with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the phone rocks the 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and is paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options. Speaking of the camera, we get to see a dual rear camera setup with 16MP+20MP snappers with dual-LED flash, f/1.7 aperture (primary) and f/2.0 aperture (secondary), 1.2-micron pixel size, OIS, and EIS. Keeping the lights on is a 3,700mAh battery which also lends support for 20W fast charging. Connectivity options provided by the OnePlus 6T include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, aptX and aptX HD support, NFC support, GLONASS, GPS, BeiDou, and USB Type-C port. Also, the OnePlus 6T does not come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but it packs a Type-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box.
