Yesterday, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition at a launch event in the UK. Now, the company has today launched the smartphone in India for a price of Rs. 50,999, which roughly converts to $709. The phone will be available for purchase exclusively through Amazon from tomorrow, i.e. 13th December.
The highlight of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is that the phone comes with 10GB of RAM and the company’s new fast charging method 30W Warp Charge. The company promises that the new technology charges the phone up to 50 percent in just 20 minutes. The company says that it has used the new Integrated Circuits in both the charger and the phone. Further, OnePlus has finely tuned power management software without generating excessive heat.
As for the design, the phone comes with Papaya Orange accent finish that races around the bottom edge of the device before fading into the black color. It features a carbon-fiber texture under its rear glass and an orange lining which shines when viewed from different angles. The McLaren logo is placed towards the bottom of the rear shell.
The pattern underneath the glass back of the phone is based on McLaren’s groundbreaking carbon fiber. There are light streaks across the McLaren logo, illuminating and disappearing in an instant. The phone also has an exclusive software animation, which is tuned to McLaren’s unique style and history.
The company is including a book in the box that celebrates the history of both the companies. It also comes with the iconic Speedmark, recreated in McLaren-designed F1 AA grade carbon fiber – the same material used in the McLaren MCL33 2018 Formula 1 car.
Just like the regular version, the newly introduced McLaren Edition features a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED screen with waterdrop notch, Full HD+ screen resolution, and Gorilla Glass 6 protection layer. Underneath the display, there’s an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 chipset, coupled with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. For photography, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition features 16-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual camera setup on the rear and a selfie shooter of 16-megapixel on the front.
Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, and USB Type-C. The phone runs OxygenOS based on Android 9 Pie operating system and is powered by a 3,700mAh battery.
