OnePlus first teamed up with McLaren back in 2018, becoming a sponsor of their Formula One team and releasing the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition as well.
Unfortunately, it seems like the partnership is over as redditor rudefyet noted that OnePlus was no longer listed as a 2020 F1 partner on the McLaren website (h/t: XDA-Developers). The company was listed until March 29 at the very least, according to XDA.
This means the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren is probably the last OnePlus/McLaren phone as a result of the pairing. So those expecting a OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8T McLaren Edition are likely setting themselves up for disappointment.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition offered more RAM (10GB) and 30W charging compared to the standard modelâ€™s 6GB to 8GB of RAM and 20W charging. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren offered more RAM (12GB) and 5G compared to the OnePlus 7T Proâ€™s 8GB of RAM and 4G connectivity. Otherwise, the McLaren phones also sported tweaked designs compared to the standard OnePlus devices.
This doesnâ€™t mean we wonâ€™t see special edition OnePlus phones down the line at all, as the firm could team up with someone else or go it alone. Nevertheless, weâ€™ve contacted OnePlus and McLaren for clarification on the situation and will update the article accordingly. What did you think of the McLaren edition devices? Let us know in the comments!
