OnePlus and McLaren both took to their respective social media accounts to announce their new partnership and also to reveal there would be a co-hosted event on December 11. The URL of the page where OnePlus announces the partnership and the upcoming event contains “mclaren-6T”, so we are pretty sure the event is for the launch of the Oneplus 6T McLaren Edition.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will have a different color, probably orange just like McLaren’s official color. It should also have the McLaren logo. With respect to specs, OnePlus may decide to add extra RAM and storage and bundle it with McLaren branded accessories.
With this announcement, OnePlus joins Huawei and OPPO on the list of Chinese manufacturers with a partnership with automobile companies. Huawei has been partnering with Porsche Design for a few years now and OPPO released a Lamborghini Edition of its Find X this year.
