The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition packs 10GB of RAM

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition was unveiled globally on Tuesday and the smartphone will be officially launched in India today.

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition price in India is expected to feature a premium over the top variant that's similar to what was announced for the United Kingdom market. The smartphone supports what OnePlus calls Warp Charge 30. OnePlus 6T McLaren edition could be priced around Rs 50,000 in India.

It features the OnePlus logo below the camera configuration, while the McLaren logo can be spotted near the phone's bottom. The company says that it has used the new Integrated Circuits in both the charger and the phone.

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition includes the "Warp Charge 30", which is the company's new charging standard. A OnePlus 6T carbon fiber black cover is included with the McLaren logo on the lower part of the back.

Another big difference is in how the battery on the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition charges. It features a carbon-fiber texture under its rear glass and an orange lining which shines when viewed from different angles. The McLaren Edition has a lot going for it, and is an easy recommendation for Formula One fans.

It also packs a Qualcomm 845 processor and 256GB of storage.

The McLaren 6T has a carbon fibre pattern on the back in reference to McLaren's use of the material in F1 and OnePlus' own historic use of it in its phones and cases.

As the 6T is missing a 3.5mm jack, you get a USB-C to 3.5mm dongle in the box, which also has an orange hue. The OnePlus 6T is the first phone from the company sold directly by a U.S. carrier, which gets it in front of more consumers who had previously never heard of OnePlus.

There is an in-display fingerprint sensor that is claimed to unlock the screen in 0.34 seconds and works with the OnePlus screen protection. The number "30" in Warp Charge 30 indicates the 30W Fast Charging capability.

The phone goes on sale two days from now, on December 13, in Western Europe and North America.

I've never seen a phone charge faster than this OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and with such quick charging capacity, one soon forgets about slow wireless charging technology. In terms of functionality there are no new features in the McLaren Edition, that RAM isn't being used for a specific task; there's no enhancement in the camera or anything else, so it's just a boost in system resources.
