A few days ago, OnePlus confirmed that the latest OnePlus 6T will receive its own special edition on December 11. The Chinese flagship smartphone maker has confirmed that OnePlus 6T will launch the special edition in London on December 11 followed by other launches.
OnePlus 6T came as an incremental model to OnePlus 6 that was launched in April 2018 with 64/128/256GB internal storage, 6/8GB RAM, SDM845 octa-core SoC, along with other high-end specs. OnePlus 6T showed enhanced specs on top of OnePlus 6′ such as a larger display, larger battery, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a sturdier water-resistance although without an official IP rating. The smartphone was earlier launched with two color variants i.e. Mirror Black and Midnight Black while a third Thunder Purple limited edition recently popped up in the stores and various online retailers such as Amazon which is currently the exclusive retailer for OnePlus in India.
We all knew that OnePlus is cooking something about a special edition similar to how it did with OnePlus 5T as Star Wars Edition, OnePlus 6 came out with Avengers: Infinity Wars Edition, and now, the ultra-popular and blazing fast OnePlus 6T will get a McLaren F1 Edition. According to the Chinese OEM, it will launch the special edition in London on December 11 followed by a December 12 launch event in India where it has sold several million units by now and then, finally on December 14 when OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will be launched in its home country in Shenzhen, China.
OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition Specifications
Unfortunately, OnePlus has kept mum on the specs list, although we might not see a huge difference between the base model and the special edition. But then there are rumors that are creating a buzz in the tech industry that OnePlus 6T could get a revamped 10GB RAM along with native 256GB internal storage which is a 2GB RAM increment and a flight to the top-end variant on OnePlus 6T available today but it won’t be cheap.

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition color, release date
There is no concrete evidence as to what color could OnePlus choose for the upcoming edition, however, considering the legacy of the British sportscar maker McLaren which has a history with the color ‘Orange’ which is usually the color you’ll see its cars during launch events and the orange strikes that are sprinkled throughout the short video posted by OnePlus, let’s expect a stunning OnePlus 6T with orange-colored gradient at the back with a McLaren branding on it. It will get a McLaren theme UI based on the latest Android Pie 9.0.
As aforementioned, OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will be launched in China on December 14 but below that, it will make it to the global market in London on December 11 followed by an Indian launch event on December 12 probably in New Delhi or Mumbai. We’ll post latest updates and more about the upcoming special edition so stay tuned on TechTantrum.
