McLaren and OnePlus Team Up on New Smartphone


McLaren has announced a long-term partnership with an unlikely mobile phone company: OnePlus. Commemorating their “shared passion for speed,” a new device was unveiled: the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.

Destined for Western Europe and North America first, and other global markets to follow, this special edition smartphone costs £649.00 (~ P 43,000). As pricey as it may seem, it does carry some intricate McLaren design cues along with one special OnePlus features.

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.


It’s also 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.

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 ground-breaking 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 all 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. The phone also comes with exclusive software animations, tuned to McLaren’s unique style and history.

McLaren and OnePlus also promise to elevate the “unboxing experience.” The phone comes encased in a box with the McLaren Speedmark logo—recreated in McLaren-designed F1 AA grade carbon fiber and a book celebrating the history of both companies.
