The handset that packs in a huge amount of RAM and new fast charging technology. The difference with OnePlus 6tT McLaren edition is that its comfotability cheaper than its rival car brand smartphones-making it a more attainable special edition device.

Also the McLaren edition got the signature ‘Papaya Orange’ wrapping around the bottom edge of the handset and then fading to black as it travels up the side of the phone It makes for an eye catching design statement, and one which we are particularly fond of. The phone has also the McLaren logo on the rear, and under the glass on the back of the handset OnePlus has worked in a carbon fiber-like pattern around the camera block similar to McLaren uses in its race cars.
About Box and book
No special edition handset is complete without its presentation box, and the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is no different.
Slide the black box, with its carbon fiber texture effect, out of the papaya orange sleeve, and open it up and you’re greeted by a book titled Salute to Speed. Pull it out and set it aside for a moment, and it will reveal goodies beneath.
There’s a charging block, charging cable and 3.5mm adapter all finished in orange, alongside a carbon fiber effect case and a card with a message from OnePlus CEO and founder Pete Lau.
Under the case there’s the final special edition treat, a McLaren Speed mark logo made from the carbon fiber used in the firm’s Formula 1 car. It’s encased in glass, so you can show it off to friends at home.
Back to the book though, and once you’ve flicked through the pages detailing McLaren’s and OnePlus’ history you’ll get to the final page where the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is.
camera and battery performance
With the same size display, same chipset, same design and same size battery, we expect the battery life of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition to be on par with the standard 6T.
That means it should last a day, as we found in Our 6T review that the battery was “giving you a solid day of use from a single charge – and often we found ourselves with a little extra in the tank as well.”
Whether the additional 2GB of RAM inside the 6T McLaren Edition will eat into any extra battery remains to be seen – but it’s something we’ll find out in our in-depth review.
Even if the McLaren Edition is a little hungrier, it does have an ace up its sleeve. OnePlus calls it Warp Charge 30, and it’ll top up your handset faster than any previous charging tech from the firm.
OnePlus claims you’ll be able to get a day’s power from a 20 minute charge with Warp Charge 30, which is an improvement on the 30 minute Dash Charge claim which we saw with the One Plus 6 and 6T.
The traditional red charging cable is out too, with the McLaren Edition getting a papaya orange, corded cable instead.
As we’ve already mentioned in this hands on look at the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, it shares many specs with the stock 6T, and that includes its cameras.
On the rear you’ll find a 16MP + 20MP dual camera setup, while on the front there’s a 16MP selfie snapper. You find out how they perform in our in-depth
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is an eye-catching smartphone with plenty of flagship features that improves on the standard 6T with even more RAM and even faster charging.
It does cost more, but the price increase is no where near as steep as we’ve seen from other automotive-branded handsets, and its price points means it still undercuts a number of top flagship phones.
This is a special edition handset, which means it will be available in limited in numbers, but if you manage to get hold of it the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition it’s unlikely to let you down
