The Chinese answering machine OnePlus collaborates with McLaren's car company to deliver a soup task of theflagship.
Officially unveiled at McLaren's technology center in Woking, England, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition features an Orange, McLaren-inspired design, 10GB of RAM and up-to-date charging technology that promises to charge even faster than OnePlus signature Dash Charge technology.
The phone will be available December 13 to markets in Western Europe and North America. It will then make the way to India, China and some countries in Northern Europe afterwards. The variation will cost $ 699 and £ 649 (or AU $ 973 converted from USD).
Mostly, the McLaren OnePlus 6T looks like the original 6T, but there are some subtle changes. When catching the light at a certain angle, for example, an orange border accents the bottom lining of the phone. On the smooth black back, it is a striped pattern reminiscent of the carbon fiber material that is often found on racing cars. It is the same pattern that is seen on the black phone case that comes with the device. Finally, the phone's charging pins and braided cable (a change from the regular silicone-coated red wire) also have deep orange accents.
As mentioned earlier, OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition comes with 10GB of RAM, which is a shock compared to the 6GB and 8GB options included with the original 6T.
The McLaren variant also contains which OnePlus brands as "Warp Charge 30." It's an up-to-date charging technology that has 30 watts of power, and the company promises that the new phone can last a full day with just a 20-minute charge.
This is not unbelievably a requirement; We have already observed first hand how effective OnePlus's proprietary quick-charge technology is on 6T and earlier phones. Known as Dash Charge, it promised one day's value set with a 30-minute cost. However, check with CNET soon after we've tested whether Warp Charge is actually faster and if the RAM frame has a significant impact on McLaren Edition's benchmarks and process performance.
With this McLaren partnership, the new 6T feels more luxurious than the original and thoughtful packaging drives this message home even longer. The unique orange trim is eye-catching and fun looking at different angles. I can not imagine anyone other than McLaren fans or racing enthusiasts who run for the chance to buy this model, but 10GB of RAM will objectively appeal to any phone buyer anyway. Plus, at $ 699, this premium 6T edition still goes below the startup price of the regular iPhone XS, Pixel 3 and.
Besides the cosmetic tweaks and memory and charging upgrades, the phone is the same as the original. The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition still features a fingerprint scanner on the screen, two rear cameras, a 6.41-inch display and a Snapdragon 845 processor.
