Next day after the global unveiling, OnePlus has finally launched its OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone in India. The new smartphone adds to the company’s existing lineup of OnePlus 6T devices but brings some new features to the table. One of the most noticeable changes come with the new handset’s design, which features the signature McLaren Papaya Orange colour accent that wraps around the phone’s bottom edge, fading into the black glass panel. Additionally, the pattern underneath the glass rear panel of the device is said to be based on McLaren’s carbon fiber, which has been used in the automotive company’s cars since 1981. There’s also 10GB RAM to go with the tagline of speed and the company’s partnership with McLaren.
