OnePlus has a remarkable tradition of launching custom versions of its flagship smartphones. It introduced the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition in December of last year and the OnePlus 6 Marvel Avengers Limited Edition earlier this year in India.
OnePlus on Tuesday announced an official partnership with autosport giant McLaren.While not confirmed yet, this could be a special edition variant of the company’s latest OnePlus 6T smartphone. Given the focus on speed and performance of this partnership, the new special edition model might arrive in only the top-end 8GB RAM + 256GB storage configuration, with possibly a premium price tag. This partnership includes both McLaren Automotive and McLaren Racing, as per the announcement.
Next month, the company appears to be launching another custom edition of its latest flagship device, the OnePlus 6T, as part of its partnership with British Formula One car maker McLaren. OnePlus posted a teaser for the special-edition phone’s announcement on Twitter today:

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will be announced on December 11 at the McLaren Technology Centre in the UK at 4:30 am EST. Although there’s no imagery of the device’s custom model as of yet, it’s expected to come in orange to match McLaren’s signature color. This edition will be priced around 53,000 to 60,000 BDT in Bangladesh.
With the teaser bearing the tagline “Salute to Speed,” the limited edition device is supposed to be a powerhouse in terms of under-the-hood specs just like the regular edition, which was announced last month.
