Apart from the Ram and 256 GB of onboard storage, all other hardware will mostly remain identical to the recently launched OnePlus 6T. So the waterdrop notch on the screen, a dual rear camera setup and everything else will continue as it is. This isn’t the first time that the phone company has associated itself with a powerful brand for its special edition phone. Previous iterations of OnePlus phones have had special editions which celebrated the company’s association with the movie franchise ‘Star Wars’, Marvel’s ‘Avengers’ and the iconic fashion boutique, ‘Colette’. The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will certainly focus on craftsmanship and for being covered in quality materials, will certainly ask for a premium, over and above its every day variants.
