Porsche teamed up with Huawei and handed us the Mate 20 RS, commonly called Porsche Design. Meanwhile, OPPO has teamed up with Lamborghini to create a special edition of its flagship. Well, now its sister company, OnePlus, allied itself with McLaren. The result? The new and powerful Android smartphone known by OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.
Consequently, we can see the growing temptation of mobile device manufacturers to combine with luxury brands. All this in order to awaken the consumerist anxiety that lies in us all, needing only to be slightly shaken from time to time.
It is against this paradigm that we now see the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition accelerating towards its official store! This is the most expensive OnePlus smartphone ever, it can be yours as of December 13 for the amount of 699 €.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition wants to conquer Europe!
First of all, we have already given an account of its official presentation as well as of its greatest novelty and added value here. In fact, we have come to realize the intention of the Chinese manufacturer to provide a more compact Android smartphone. However, this article serves as a general overview, compendium of novelties and general analysis of the role in the market of this new product. After all, it is not every day that this brand almost breaks the barrier of € 700 for a new product. Still, there is much to be said.
First of all, let’s recap the main news and differences compared to the standard version of this Android smartphone. First of all, here is a new fast loading standard, the official replacement for the Dash Charge, the new Warp Charge.
However, it is thanks to the 30W quick charger included in your box that you can get up to 50% of your battery in just 20 minutes. In this sense, I would remind you that the OnePlus 6T has a 3700mAh capacity battery.

Concluding this department we also have a USB 3.0 / USB Type C cable for data loading and transfer. Now covered with fabric and a new tone, the papaya orange that accompanies the McLaren theme.This is the latest special edition of the high-end Android smartphone.
Secondly, we have a new finish, a new standard in carbon fiber to fill the back of the Android smartphone. According to the brand, it is a tribute to McLaren, the first brand to use this material in Formula 1.

This is once again one of the characteristic colors of McLaren, now used in this Android smartphone in a beautiful gradient.“We lost” the Dash Charge but we won something even better and more versatile! In addition to new visual touches.

10GB RAM and 256GB ROM – the 3rd novelty of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition
Thus, the new device is comparable for example to the Xiaomi BlackShark Helo, among other top devices. In short, its performance will not be easily overcome, at least until the first smartphones with the SoC Snapdragon 855 appear.
Everything else remains identical on this Android smartphone. From the use of a 3700mAh battery To your 16 + 20 MP dual rear camera. However, your OxygenOS now has a newboot animation as well as new wallpapers.

Looking now for the placement strategy of this Android smartphone, while several of the previous special editions were exclusive of the Eastern markets, now changed the paradigm. That is, it becomes perfectly clear the intention of the brand.
The implementation in the United States of America as well as the firm of its position in Europe. Being a notoriously more expensive version, it also prides itself on being more Western.
This is due to “Made in Europe” in regards to carbon fiber finishing. In any case, it’s great to see this manufacturer that offers us good value for money devices to grow and become more and more adult.
