Today, global mobile technology company OnePlus, and McLaren, the racing and technology brand and creator of luxury, high performance sportscars and supercars, launched the superfast and ultrapowerful OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. The new device marks the start of a long-term partnership, celebrating a shared passion for speed, and the two brand’s similar philosophies – to “Never Settle” and to move “Fearlessly Forward.”
“The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is stunning. Engineered with exact precision and new technology we’ve never used before, it’s our fastest, most cutting-edge device ever – the epitome of craftsmanship” said OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. “It’s the start of an exciting partnership with McLaren, giving people a feeling of incredible speed and performance.”
Speed meets speed
The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is a combination of speed, technology, and beauty. Inspired by the desire to constantly challenge existing standards, OnePlus and McLaren have introduced intricate design with a powerful and versatile experience.
Unmatched speed is at the heart of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, with new technology including Warp Charge 30, OnePlus’ new charging standard. Warp Charge 30 takes fast charging to new heights and never leaves people wanting, offering a day’s power in just 20 minutes. Thanks to new Integrated Circuits in both the charger and the phone, as well as finely tuned power management software, 30 watts of power flow to the handset without slowing down even when the device is being used, or generating excessive heat.
A powerhouse of multitasking, whether it’s high-end gaming, filming in 4K at 60 fps, photo-editing on the move or rapidly switching between apps the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition doesn’t slow down, because it features a colossal 10 GB of RAM.
Designed for speed
The signature McLaren color, Papaya Orange races around the bottom edge of the device before fading into the black. The pattern underneath the glass back of the phone is based on McLaren’s groundbreaking carbon fiber, the technology at the heart of all McLaren cars since 1981 when it was introduced to the Formula 1 car design, before being integrated into McLaren road cars in 1993. While light streaks across the McLaren logo, illuminating and disappearing in an instant. The Warp Charge 30 power unit includes a Papaya Orange braided cord cable.
OnePlus and McLaren have taken the unboxing experience to a new level. Encassed in the box is McLaren’s logo, the iconic Speedmark, recreated in McLaren-designed F1 AA grade carbon fiber – the same material used in the McLaren MCL33 2018 Formula 1 car. Over six F1 cars’ worth of carbon fiber were used in the production of the Speedmarks.
With the device comes a book celebrating the history of both companies, and on the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition, people can enjoy the exclusive software animations, tuned to McLaren’s unique style and history.
“The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is a special collaboration between McLaren and OnePlus,” said Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing. “The end product is a device that brings performance never seen before. Our thanks to our OnePlus partners for capturing our spirit accurately and bringing unmatched power and speed in the new flagship device.”
The device will be available in Western Europe and North America December 13, with availability in India, China and the Nordics soon after. The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is available for £649.
