Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has come a long way, I remember some people scoffing at me when I’d pull out my OnePlus One (their first phone) phone, now their phones are being compared to the big guys’ phones like the Google Pixel and Apple iPhone.
Their latest phone is the special edition OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, based on the already available 6T smartphone. Unlike other automotive themed phones, the 6T McLaren Edition is priced very fairly, costing $699 US, which is only $70 more than the regular OnePlus 6T phone.
The 6T is already a good looking phone, the McLaren Edition adds some orange color(McLaren’s F1 colors) to the back, a carbon fiber back, and the McLaren logo on the back. The phone will also come with some exclusive McLaren animations.
The phone comes with a 6.4” AMOLED display, it comes with two rear cameras (20 and 16 Megapixel),and a 16 MP front camera. The phone runs on Android 9 Pie operating system with OxygenOS custom overlay. Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with octa-core CPU and Andreno 630 GPU. The phone comes with 10 gigabytes of RAM and256 gigabytes of storage and comes with a 3,700 mAh Li-Po battery pack, fast charging, and dual nano-SIM cards. The phone also a fingerprint reader. The phone also comes with Warp Charge 30, which is a fast charging system that charges the battery to 50% capacity in just 20 minutes, this can be done while you’re using the phone.
