OnePlus 6T McLaren edition makes a "fearless" jump to 10GB of RAM

OnePlus 6T McLaren edition makes a

OnePlus, a Chinese smartphone maker will be launching the new OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition flagship smartphone in India today at an event in Mumbai. On the fringes of Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui last week, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau told me that USA sales of the OnePlus 6T in its first 30 days were up 249 percent over the OnePlus 6. Besides the 10GB RAM, the Warp Charge 30 charger is sole other highlight of the new OnePlus 6T edition.

Resolution aside it's a screen we were impressed by in our OnePlus 6T review so the same will probably hold true for the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.

But perhaps its most impressive feature is what it calls Warp Charge 30 - which allows the phone to be charged up to 50% (enough for a full day) in just 20 minutes.

The device is based on the OnePlus 6T, but packs 10GB of RAM and features McLaren branding on the chassis. In addition to the mobile phone, buyers will also receive commemorative Speedmark logos.

Building on the design of the regular 6T, the McLaren Edition features the F1's teams signature Papaya Orange colour scheme along its bottom edge.

There are some other Easter eggs with the McLaren edition of the handset that should please auto racing fans.

Diplomats struggle for agreement on G-20 summit statement
China calls the United States protectionist and has resisted what it views as attempts to intimidate it. The Group of 20 brings together leaders of 19 of the world's most industrialised nations plus the EU.

Finally, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition comes with a specially designed McLaren logo using the F1 AA-grade carbon fibre, which the company says is the same material used in the McLaren MCL33 2018 Formula 1 vehicle.

You also get an orange USB Type-C cable, Type-C to 3.5mm adapter, case and a glass cube with an actual carbon fibre McLaren logo inside for a touch of desk bling potential (or extra clutter).

OnePlus says the device will be available in Western Europe and North America from December 13, with availability in India, China and the Nordics soon after.

The 6T's recent success in the USA shows just how much the support of the country's third-largest carrier helped OnePlus' cause. OnePlus improves its 20W Fast Charging with an even faster Warp Charging. Overall there's a lot more going on in the McLaren Edition's design and we suspect the orange color won't suit everyone, but it's sure to appeal to fans of the brand.

Once the phone is up and running, the true nature of the McLaren book comes alive as a "Salute to Speed" Augmented Reality App brings some fascinating insight and cool tricks. The most expensive standard 6T model clocks in at $629, so the McLaren Edition's markup doesn't feel too extreme - a relief after some of the other smartphones that have come out of team ups with auto companies.
