We’re just a few days away from the launch of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, and almost as if on cue, here come the leaks. The latest reveal comes in the form of leaked renders and posters that showcase the special edition device, along with certain specifications and features. According to the leak, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition color will be called Speed Orange, and is developed in collaboration with supercar manufacturer and Formula One racing team McLaren.
While other details aren’t known yet, the leaks from tipster Ishan Agarwal do give some information away. In a tweet, the tipster has revealed that the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will come with 10GB of RAM and support for Warp Charge, the new fast charging standard from OnePlus. Touted as a step-up over the Dash Charge standard that is over two years old now, Warp Charge is believed to be based on the same 50W charging technology as Oppo‘s Super VOOC charging. The poster suggests that the charging standard will provide ‘a day’s power in 20 minutes’.

The remaining images in the tweet show various renders of the upcoming phone, showing a carbon fiber-like design at the back with orange accents along the edges. The sides of the phone will likely sport the same black shade as the standard variants, and the back also has a McLaren logo at the bottom. There could also be a special wallpaper for the device that matches with the black and orange color scheme.
