The news has been confirmed. OnePlus and Mclaren have parted ways. In a statement to Android Authority, a McLaren spokesperson said, “Our partnership with OnePlus, which came to its scheduled conclusion recently, has been a highly successful collaboration between two iconic and innovative brands. Since the start of this partnership in 2018, OnePlus has been a supportive, valued partner and we wish them well and hope to see them in the future.”

In late May, Reddit user rudefyet put out a post 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. You can read more about it here

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.
