Smartphone maker OnePlus has unveiled a new super-fast-charging phone built in collaboration with motoring firm McLaren.
The new OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition uses a new charging standard the phone maker calls Warp Charge 30, which it says can provide “a day’s worth” of battery power — around 50% charge — in 20 minutes.
OnePlus says the technology is powered by new integrated circuits in both the charger and the phone and more efficient power management software, which also prevents the device from overheating when charging.
The new Android phone also includes 10GB of RAM, one of the first firms to do so and among the largest available on a consumer mobile device — which increases the speed with which the phone can switch between different apps.
In reference to the link with McLaren, the phone also features the Papaya Orange colour of McLaren’s Formula One cars.
McLaren Racing chief executive Zak Brown said: “The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is a special collaboration between McLaren and OnePlus. The end product is a device that brings performance never seen before. Our thanks to our OnePlus partners for capturing our spirit accurately and bringing unmatched power and speed in the new flagship device.”
The phone is the third new device from OnePlus in 2018, as the company attempts to challenge the likes of Samsung, Huawei and Apple through offering similar specification phones at lower prices.
