OnePlus with its every new launch adds something new to its product. The new OnePlus 6T McLaren edition looks similar to the regular OnePlus 6T, but features a black-and-orange color scheme, more ROM and faster charging system (Warp Charge). The McLaren OnePlus 6T also features exclusive animations and themes as well. For example, the Fingerprint animation, boot up animation and live wallpapers are different from the regular 6T.
