OnePlus 6T McLaren edition launch in India today: Expected price, specifications

The rear camera setup on the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition - like the "regular" OnePlus 6T - is capable of shooting 4K videos at 60fps frame rate and supports Super Slow Motion Video mode with options for 1080p at 240fps and 720p at 480fps. The display is the same 6.41-inch Full HD+ AMOLED, with that dew drop notch at the top with the 16-megapixel front camera. For one the McLaren Edition has an orange streak, and that's not a pun or metaphor it literally has an orange trim round the outside.

After a month with the 6T, it is clearly the best value available today with T-Mobile's $579 model satisfying the masses. Second, there are subtle changes to the design. CEO of McLaren Racing Zak Brown introduced the "long term partnership" with OnePlus on stage at the event which was titled a "Salute to Speed".


OnePlus has been making waves with the recently launched OnePlus 6T, most notably with an official release in the U.S. Running the Snapdragon 845 processor, the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is based on OxygenOS over and above Android 9 Pie. Incidentally, the OnePlus 6T standard edition variant featuring 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage retails for GBP 579 (INR 52,500 approx.).

What difference will that make? This, OnePlus says, also helps the phone charge quickly without hampering its performance. However, it's unclear whether the device will sport other differentiating features that would convince buyers to spend the extra cash for a phone whose main feature won't be exactly useful.


For starters, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition comes with an orange accent that nods to McLaren's famous papaya orange it has used one and off for decades.

Traditionally, the company includes a 20W charger in the box. There are light streaks across the McLaren logo, illuminating and disappearing in an instant. That means faster charging and the McLaren Edition will charge to 50 per cent battery in 20 minutes. We don't know yet what battery percentage we'll get after 20 minutes, but if it's close to the Mate 20 Pro's 70 percent after 30 minutes, then it'll be in good company. 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 vehicle.


There's also a plaque featuring a tiny shard of carbon fiber fashioned into the McLaren logo.
