OnePlus has a legacy of launching special editions of their flagship killers and this cycle we will get the OnePlus 6T Mclaren Edition. In fact, the company has officially announced its collaboration with renowned supercar maker and F1 team McLaren and will be launching the product on December 12th in India, a day after the global unveiling. OnePlus also has a dedicated teaser page for the 6T Mclaren edition.
The OnePlus 6T (review) is currently also available in Mirror Black, Thunder Purple, and Midnight Black. OnePlus in an official statement has said that it will “incorporate both McLaren Automotive and McLaren Racing.” The idea behind this collaboration is a ‘Salute to Speed’ which is something both brands like to associate themselves with.
OnePlus is not really the first smartphone maker to collaborate with an Automobile giant. In the past various smartphone brands like Huawei, Oppo and Blackberry have used supercars branding to push limited editions of their flagship. For instance, there is a Porche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS and Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition. The upcoming OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is first OnePlus phone with such a collaboration.
