The device is the first one for the Chinese smartphone company that is designed in association with the Formula 1 or F1 racing team McLaren. Many will consider this overkill, but OnePlus insists that it means "faster performance" and will enable you to "multitask to your heart's content".

Die-hard McLaren fans will have the flawless gift on offer for themselves for Christmas, with Chinese company OnePlus marketing a special edition co-branded smartphone emblazoned with the McLaren name. Meanwhile, the biggest change for the new edition is the 10GB of RAM under the hood, which should help keep things humming along on the new Papaya Orange-trimmed handset. This exact material goes in the MCL33 2018. Light streaks across the McLaren logo, illuminating and disappearing in an instant. It's interesting OnePlus made a decision to launch a new charger alongside a limited edition smartphone like this, but it's a nice bonus all the same.

If you haven't bought the OnePlus 6T yet you might be glad you waited. Now, CEO Pete Lau confirms that this 5G device will be launched by the end of May 2019. The Indian venue of launch is at Richardson and Cruddas, Byculla, Mumbai.

A powerhouse of multitasking, whether it's high-end gaming, filming in 4K at 60 fps, photo-editing on the move, or rapidly switching between apps, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition doesn't slow down because it features a colossal 10 GB of RAM. This new variant has been in the leaks from weeks and the company also sent invites and posted teasers across social media with a tag " Salute to Speed" for its upcoming device. It'll cost you £649 (£70 more than the 8/256GB OnePlus 6T) and will be available to buy on Thursday 13th December at 9am.

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will be available in India, China, Western Europe and North America. This phone will not be the OnePlus 7 - the successor to the OnePlus 6T - but instead it will be a completely separate device with different branding. OnePlus should confirm the pricing and availability of the limited edition OnePlus 6T smartphone today.

As for the McLaren branding of the phone, this comes in the form of Papaya Orange detailing around the bottom edge of the phone and on the cord cable, carbon fiber pattern on the back of the phone and an illuminated McLaren logo. The back contains a label with the serial numbers and other licensing info from Qualcomm and McLaren.

A feature punted by OnePlus is the phone's Warp Charge 30 charging, which lets users recharge 50% of their 3,700mAh battery in 20 minutes using a wired charger. One of the differentiating features on the McLaren Edition is the packaging - the device comes in an orange box packed with goodies.

The handset is the first to include OnePlus' new charging standard - Warp Charge 30.
