OnePlus, a leading premium smartphone brand is known for launching special edition models of its smartphones. Last year, the company introduced the OnePus 6T McLaren Edition with the highest memory configuration. It looks like the company will follow the same trend this year as well with the OnePlus 7T Pro.
In a recent development, the OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that a new McLaren Edition smartphone will be launched this year. While the name of the device is yet to be revealed, a previous leak hints that the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is on cards. It could be announced alongside the OnePlus 7T Pro standard variant at the event in London on October 10.
Well, the OnePlus CEO took to Twitter to reveal an image of a retail package flaunting the carbon fiber pattern and the iconic orange outline as seen on the package of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. In addition to this, he replied to a tweet posted by YouTuber Marques Brownlee aka MKBHD confirming that the McLaren Edition phone is coming for sure. However, he did not divulge if it will be the newly launched OnePlus 7T or the upcoming 7T Pro to get this special treatment from McLaren.
From the recent reports, we can expect the device to be the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition. It has been revealed that the OnePlus 7T Pro will be announced on October 10 in London. There is a widespread expectation for the McLaren Edition to also be announced at the event as the British carmaker has a cryptic tweet hinting the same earlier this month.
