The OnePlus 6T which was unveiled in October is the most powerful (and expensive) OnePlus smartphone to date… or at least it was until today when the company unveiled a new special edition model priced at $699.
You’re not just paying a premium for the design and logo on this phone though — it’s also the first OnePlus phone to feature 10GB of RAM and the company’s Warp Charge 30 fast-charging.
That means you can get a 50 percent charge by plugging in the phone for 20 minutes.
As for the extra RAM… it probably won’t make much of a difference, honestly. Theoretically extra RAM could help with multitasking or resource-intensive applications, but it’s not like the non-McLaren editions of this phone were slouches in the memory department.
The $549 model has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, or you can pay $579 for a version with 8GB/128GB or $629 for an 8GB/256GB version.
Then again that means you’re only paying $70 extra for the 10GB/256GB OnePlus 6T McLaren edition phone with a custom design, faster charging, and the extra RAM (whether you need it or not).
Like all other versions of the phone, the OnePlus 6T McLaren has a 6.4 inch, 2340 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a waterdrop-style selfie camera notch. It has a 3,700 mAh battery, UFS 2.1 storage, 16MP + 20MP dual rear cameras, and Android 9 Pie software (with OxygenOS software).
