The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone was recently launched in the UK. Now the company has also announced it for the Indian market. It is a limited edition variant of the OnePlus 6T which the company has developed in collaboration with British supercar manufacturer, McLaren. Although the new variant borrows a lot of specifications from the regular variant, the new features make it stand out. The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition not only has a beautiful rear design it also gets Warp Charge 30 and 10 GB of RAM. It is the first global smartphone to offer this high capacity of RAM.
The OnePlus 6T Mclaren Edition, like its regular variant, has a high screen-to-body ratio with a waterdrop notch at the front. The right side of the device makes room for the power button and the sound profile slider while the left side houses the volume rockers. Over at bottom, the device has a USB Type-C port, the loudspeaker grille, and the microphone grille. The rear of the device gets a newly designed back panel which houses the dual camera setup with LED flash. The glass panel has a carbon fiber like design and the signature McLaren Orange Papaya coloured accent runs along its bottom and sides.
The OnePlus 6T Mclaren Edition has a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with a small waterdrop notch. The display panel has a Full HD resolution of 2340 x 1080 px and a pixel density of 402 ppi. The display has a screen to body ratio of 85.6% and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Additionally, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition’s display has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 to protect it against scratches and accidental drops.
The McLaren Edition OnePlus 6T runs on the 10 nm, Snapdragon 845 SoC. The Snapdragon 845 consists of an Octa-Core CPU and Adreno 630 GPU. The CPU consists four Kryo 385 Gold cores and four 385 Silver Cores. For high performance, the Kryo 385 Gold cores have a clock frequency of 2.8 GHz and for better battery backup the Kryo 385 Silver cores have a clock frequency of 1.7 GHz.
The new limited McLaren Edition variant of the OnePlus 6T gets 10 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. In terms of internal storage, the device has 256 GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Both, LPDDR4X RAM andUFS 2.1 contribute in making the smartphone extremely fast. Like other OnePlus smartphones, it does not support memory expandability.
The OnePlus 6T Mclaren Edition has a 16 MP (Sony IMX 371), f 2.0 aperture equipped front-facing camera sensor which is housed in the notch. Over at the rear, the device gets dual 16 MP (Sony IMX 519) + 20 MP (Sony IMX 376K) camera sensors. Both the 16 MP and the 20 MP sensor are equipped with a f/1.7 aperture. Most notably, the 16 MP camera has a 1.22-micron size pixel which allows for better light absorption. Therefore, the device can capture well-lit pictures even in low light conditions. The smartphone can also capture 2160p videos at 60fps from the rear cameras and 1080p videos at 30 fps from the front camera.
Like the regular variant, the McLaren Edition OnePlus 6T packs a 3,700 mAh Lithium-Ion battery. However, the new device now supports Warp Charge which charges the device with 30 watts of power. In comparison, the dash charge on the regular variant charges the handset at only 20 watts. Therefore this is a 50% boost from the old technology. According to OnePlus, the limited edition variant can be charged up to 50% in under 20 minutes.
To support this rapid charge, both the phone and the charger now have an integrated circuit chip. OnePlus also ships the device with a Papaya Orange coloured braided cable which is essential to support the Warp charge. Furthermore, the McLaren Edition variant does not thermal throttle. It means that the device will continue to charge at a rapid pace even if the device gets hot or is being used to run CPU intensive tasks.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition variant, like the regular variant, also supports dual 4G VoLTE, dual-band 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, NFC, and GPS. The device also has a host of sensors which include an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a proximity sensor, and a compass. For securely and safely unlocking the handset, the device gets an in-display fingerprint sensor. Additionally, the device also supports Face Unlock Technology.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone with 10 GB of RAM and 256 GB of ROM is priced in India at Rs 50,999. It will be available via both online and offline channels. The phone will be available from tomorrow at Delhi’s newly launched store and will be available on other channels from 15th December.
