OnePlus today announced that it will be collaborating with McLaren on a new variant of the OnePlus 6T. The company has collaborated with other notable brands in the past to launch limited edition variants of its devices. This includes the likes of the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition and the Avengers edition of the OnePlus 6.
For the OnePlus 6T, OnePlus is joining forces with legendary brand McLaren known for their sports cars and speed. The announcement from OnePlus says that this is a new “long-term technology partnership” as both companies bring together their legacy and craftsmanship for useful innovation.
OnePlus CEO & Founder, Pete Lau said on the partnership, “McLaren and OnePlus were born in a similar way – with a big dream to create something special. Starting from nothing, we challenged ourselves to never settle. Today we unveil a true testament to innovation, a salute to speed.”
OnePlus will also be holding a special event on December 12, 2018 in India where it is expected to unveil a special edition of the OnePlus 6T. If previous special edition OnePlus devices are anything to go by, this McLaren edition of the OnePlus 6T will have a special finish and packaging. Otherwise, it will sport the same internals, camera, and software as the regular variant of the device.
