OnePlus 6 T McLaren Edition Review
On paper, the McLaren Edition of the OnePlus 6T is a replica of the standard variant, albeit one with some racing flair, two additional gigs of memory and an even faster Warp Charging tech.
The OnePlus 6 T McLaren Edition packs a little more punch than the regular One Plus 6 T, includes design elements inspired by McLaren and a higher price tag.
The display is a 6.4 inches AMOLED panel with a water drop and a fingerprint sensor under the screen. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
The smartphone comes with a carbon fibre back under a glass layer inspired by the fact that McLaren was the first company to use the same material in Formula One race cars for its light weight and durability.
Apart from these changes, the rest of the spec list remains the same as the regular OnePlus 6T. The McLaren Edition is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and Adreno 630 GPU.
In the optics department, the OnePlus 6 T McLaren Edition has a dual camera setup with a primary sensor of 16 megapixels and another sensor of 20 megapixels. The front snapper comes with a 16-megapixel sensor.
Oxygen OS runs on Android 9.0 Pie on the smartphone.
Another major upgrade for the OnePlus 6 T McLaren Edition is its 10 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage for smoother multitasking applications.
One of the biggest upgrades to OnePlus 6 T McLaren Edition is a quick charge technology called Warp 30 by the company. According to OnePlus ‘ claims, the 3,700mAh 6 T McLaren Edition battery could be recharged up to 50% within 20 minutes using this technology, which is good for day use.

The design tweaks are subtle, from the carbon fibre pattern and McLaren logo on the glass back of the orange tint around the bottom edges, the black and orange Android theme and the orange braided charging cable, the latter a nod to the papaya orange colour favoured by Mc Laren F1 cars.
Unsurprisingly, the phone is a monster performance-wise, and the similarly monstrous 10 GB of memory is impressive, through massively underutilized.
The new Warp Charge 30 is blisteringly fast, juicing up the phone to 502 per cent of its 3700 mAh battery is just 20 minutes without overheating the phone.
Dash Charge was ready good on the previous One Plus Phone and Warp Charge 30 pushes the envelope that extra bit further.
But honestly, this collector’s edition package is one for McLaren racing fans, who should gladly spend the extra penny on what is an excellent homage to its racing heritage.
A lesson in how brand collaborations should be done. Significantly pricier than the top –end 6T without really addressing any of the phone’s minor weaknesses
