OnePlus May Launch A Phone In Partnership With McLaren
Most Chinese manufacturers these days have been known to team up with big brands such as Marvel, Lamborghini, Porsche and others. Joining the bandwagon, OnePlus might soon surprise us with a McLaren version of one of their phones. Oppo recently released the Find X Lamborghini edition and OnePlus has released Marvel’s Avengers edition phones in the past as well. Via tweets, both OnePlus and McLaren have announced a partnership.

OnePlus has also shared a video and written “Experience the
#SalutetoSpeed” which can only mean a McLaren edition of their OnePlus 6T. Or atleast that is what the tech industry believes as of now. The announcement will be made on December 11, 2018.

This partnership is in line with OnePlus’ motto of ‘Unlock The Speed’ for their OnePlus 6T phones. This further cements the idea that the company will be bringing in a new edition with cosmetic changes from McLaren. Some are also speculating higher RAM and better performances from the McLaren version but it is too early to tell. McLaren is known to launch new cars with orange liveries. We suspect the new phone may have an orange tinge or an orange back.
