It’ll probably be orange, have a maxed-out spec sheet, and cost too much

In the fine tradition of vapid Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche Design phones made by tech companies that should know better, OnePlus has this morning announced a launch event for its collaboration with British supercar maker McLaren. The teaser page set up for the launch, scheduled for December 11th, leaves little doubt about the likely content of the announcement, with the url reading “mclaren-6t”.

OnePlus hasn’t shied away from doing custom editions of its smartphones, having previously done a subtle Star Wars edition as well as an Avengers edition of its flagship device of the time. Carrying the tagline “salute to speed,” the McLaren 6T can be rightly expected to feature all the excellent quickness and responsiveness that OnePlus’ ordinary 6T provides, though probably juiced up with some suitably increased RAM and storage numbers on the spec sheet and a fattened-up price to match. McLaren’s signature color when launching new cars is orange, so there’s a high chance of that figuring on the McLaren 6T. We’ll know for sure in a couple of weeks’ time.
