OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition: Specifications and features
For the most part, OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is similar to the regular OnePlus 6T. Nevertheless, there are a few key differences. First off, the McLaren Edition comes with a whopping 10GB of RAM, which makes it the first OnePlus smartphone to have that much amount of memory. As one would expect, there s Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC at the helm, along with 256GB of internal storage. In addition, OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition features an even better Warp Charge technology, which supports 30W fast-charging, but is most likely a rebranded version of ‘Dash Charge’.
Visually also, the McLaren Edition differs from regular OnePlus 6T editions, as evinced by its Papaya Orange color scheme. There s even a carbon fiber patter under the smartphone s glass rear panel, which gives it a distinct appearance. Of course, there s McLaren s logo at the bottom half of the back panel as well.
As far as the accessories are concerned, both the charger and USB-to-3.5mm audio dongle come with dual-tone (Black and Papaya Orange) color scheme.
Other than that, most internals of OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition remain unchanged. You still get a 6.41-inch Full-HD+ Optic AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and a waterdrop notch. The in-screen fingerprint sensor is there as well.
For imaging, OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition features a dual-lens rear camera system with one 16-megapixel unit and one 20-megapixel unit. There s also a 16-megapixel front-facing lens for selfies and video calls. The smartphone is backed by a 3,700mAh battery.
