Today there has been a leak showing the renders of the new variation along with some unbelievable specs.

Late last month, we reported that OnePlus was working in conjunction with sports auto manufacturer McLaren to create a special version of the newly released OnePlus 6T. Furthermore, the phone will sport a new color. The colour appears to be a black with an orange tinge to it - it is unclear whether this is just on the periphery of the rear of the device or whether it is a colour effect where the black has an orange tinge when viewed at certain angles. The McLaren Speed Orange variant will arrive with a whopping 10GB of RAM (and Google decided on 4GB for the Pixel 3), and 256GB of onboard storage. Besides, the current device is already known to be fast enough and is also being considered as the fastest Android device in the market to date.

OnePlus is calling it Warp Charge 30 and it will provide a day's power in 20 minutes - 10 minutes faster than Dash Charge. If that sounds familiar that's because it should be.

While the current charger bundled with OnePlus 6T supports 20W which is way faster than Samsung or Google which support 10W charging, OnePlus could really take the lead with 50W charging which is now supported by its sibling company Oppo.

It looks like these details are under the rear glass, and given OnePlus' previous attention to manufacturing detail, that's the part that will likely be the most exciting about this phone.

Beyond that, there's little visual change between the McLaren Edition and the standard OnePlus 6T model, other than a McLaren logo on the phone. Technically, this smartphone is to retain the design and internals of the regular OnePlus 6T, however, not all aspects will be retained, some will be upgraded. The launch event of the phone has been named "Salute to Speed'". With a spec bump like this plus the extremely fast charging solution it promises to be a much sought after phone. Do you think it will be worth the extra premium? Not only that, it looks like OnePlus could ditch their trademark red charging cable in favour of the Orange one which is a trademark colour for McLaren sports cars.
