Since we all enjoy a good unboxing, we thought we’d share the official OnePlus 6T McLaren edition unboxing video. While the video simply gives you a visual overview of what you’ll find inside the box, traditional unboxing videos for the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition will likely be showing up soon as well.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition was officially unveiled today, sporting all the of the features that have been revealed in the leaks over the past few weeks. While the basic spec of the phone are in line with the original OnePlus 6T, the McLaren edition packs in an additional 2GB of RAM. To be clear, this isn’t the first device on the market with 10GB of RAM, but it’s definitely the most affordable. OnePlus 6T McLaren edition will go on sale in North America for $699 and €699 over in Europe, making it $120 more than the regular OnePlus 6T and the most expensive device OnePlus has ever featured in its lineup. That being said, it’s still substantially cheaper than most other flagship smartphones which range from $800 to $1,000.
The only other spec improvement offered by the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition is its new Warp Charge 30 which promises to deliver “a day’s power” in just 20 minutes of charging. This 20 minutes connected to the new charger actually deliver a 50% charge to the phone’s 3700mAh battery while keeping the phone cool while charging.
From a design standpoint, the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition sports a few visual tweaks which include a carbon fiber texture below the rear glass, McLaren’s Papaya Orange highlight along the bottom and side edges and the same color applied to the braided charging cord. The phone also comes with a unique box which includes a McLaren booklet and a little plaque with the McLaren Speedmark logo in F1 AA-grade carbon fiber.
Are you willing to pay the McLaren tax to own the most powerful device OnePlus has ever made?
With the launch of the of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition right around the corner, we finally have the last missing piece to the puzzle — its price. After sharing official press images of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition a few days back, @IshanAgarwal24 has now revealed the phone will make its debut for €699 & €709 (right around $800) in markets across Europe, making it the most expensive OnePlus device in history. The €10 price variation from country to country is in line with what OnePlus’ pricing for its other devices (likely due to differences in VAT between countries).
Since the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition features 10GB of RAM and an upgraded fast charging technology, we were expecting it to sell for at least €50-60 more than the €589 variant of the OnePlus 6T which comes equipped with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. To us, the €110 premium for the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition seems a bit excessive considering that OnePlus only charges a €30 premium to upgrade from 6GB to 8GB of RAM.
Despite the phone’s high price tag, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will likely sell quite well. Will you be forking over the cash to be among the few to own a smartphone with 10GB of RAM?
The most expensive OnePlus phone EVER, as I told you weeks ago! BTW, There is usually a 10 Euro difference in prices between different European countries, hence, €699 & €709. Hope you understand. I like this phone though! :)#OnePlus6T#SaluteToSpeed pic.twitter.com/2L9pm1xkYb
