Yes, that's right, if information circulating the internet is to be believed, then the partnership between OnePlus and Mclaren has ended. Reddit user rudefyet put out a post on Reddit which reads, “Just noticed this. Guessing there might not be another McLaren edition coming”. He links to the Mclaren partners page where OnePlus is no longer listed. According to XDA developers, OnePlus was listed until March 29 as a partner. So if you thought there would be a Mclaren edition of the OnePlus 8 or 8 Pro, then there is bad news for you. 

We have reached out to OnePlus for a comment and will update this article when we receive word from them.

OnePlus is no stranger to special edition devices. We first saw this with the OnePlus 5T which was available in a Star Wars: The Last Jedi Edition You can check out its details here. Next up, we got the OnePlus 6 Avengers Edition and you can check out the details of that device here. Both the above phones were available in limited quantities around the world making them quite desirable to fans and those that wanted a “unique” OnePlus device. Next up, we got the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. This variant not only came with the signature Mclaren design but also brought with it advancements under the hood including 10GB RAM (not available on any other OnePlus 6T) and Warp Charge 30 you can check out the details here. The McLaren Edition made a comeback with the OnePlus 7T Pro and you can check out that device here.

However, if there was one device that embodied the DNA of the McLaren formula more than the special editions was a device that was never released to the public. It was the OnePlus Concept One. As the name suggests the device was a concept and wasn't released to the public, but we got our hands on the device and you can check out our hands-on in the video below. The unique thing about the OnePlus Concept One was the fact that it had a disappearing camera. OnePlus used electrochromic glass technology to hide the rear cameras on the handset, the same as what is seen on Mclaren 720S. It also has the same papaya orange colour found on the McLaren car and the signature stitching found on the seats of the 720S.
