The partnership agreement between OnePlus and McLaren, starting with oneplus 6T. Just the other day, it was rumored that OnePlus’ name was not on the list of partners with McLaren in Formula One in 2020 and the partnership agreement ended, but this time it became clear that the contract had officially ended.
A McLaren spokesman said:
Our partnership agreement with OnePlus, which ended as planned the other day, was a hugely successful collaboration between the two iconic and innovative brands.
Since the partnership agreement began in 2018, OnePlus has been a very supportive and important partner. I hope to see them again in the future and in the future. (Translation)
As mentioned above, this case was decided from the original, and it was finished as planned.
From 2018, it was about a year and a half, but OnePlus has announced three collaboration models.
OnePlus and McLaren, the history of its partnership
What is McLaren?
McLaren is a British automaker and F1 racing team, and many people know and have seen its distinctive orange car, even if you’re not familiar with cars.
OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition
The partnership between OnePlus and McLaren dates back to the 2018 OnePlus 6T. OnePlus, which announced oneplus 6T at the end of October of the same year, announced the signing of a partnership agreement with McLaren at the end of the following month.
On December 11, 2016, OnePlus announced its first collaboration model with McLaren, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.
The model was equipped with the largest 10GB RAM at the time, and the charging speed of 6T was 20W Dash Charge compatible, while the 30W Warr Charge 30 was supported.
In addition, it was a mcLaren fan drooping, such as a dedicated skin and a shield containing the McLaren speed mark logo made of carbon fiber that was actually used in the McLaren MCL33.
OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition
With the McLaren Edition in 6T, McLaren editions on the 7T Pro, which also bears the T, were not a surprise. Almost the same as the usual 7T Pro in the specs, what was characteristic was its rear design that the habit became stronger than the first generation.
While the first generation was the accent of papaya orange in the depths to the carbon fiber tone, the papaya orange accent of the abyss in the 7T Pro is intact, the entire back to a characteristic design like grain.
There are pros and cons to this design, but it’s actually based on a carbon fiber print used in the interior of a sports car called McLaren Speedtail.
In addition, the attached case was a monotonous carbon fiber case in the first generation, but the 7T Pro places carbon fiber on the side, and the middle uses artificial leather, which is also used for the interior of a luxury car called Alcantara.
The case is also in a box that looks hidden in the bottom of the package, and in order to take it out, you must hold it down and lift the top. It’s very elaborate, and it’s just a special edition.
OnePlus Concept One is a concept model as its name was announced at this year’s CES.
The basic specifications are the OnePlus 7T Pro intact, and the rear camera is covered with electrochromatic glass used in some car and airplane windows, making it possible to make the camera invisible during normal times or as a light adjustment filter.
In addition, the entire back also exists a black model, “Concept One of Papaya Orange is a little …” I think that it is good even if it is this.
As an individual, I was quite motivated to buy, but this is a concept model. Unfortunately, it is not for sale. I’m very sorry that onePlus and McLaren’s collaboration models ended up not for sale.
How is the next collaboration model?
With the end of the partnership agreement between OnePlus and McLaren, you may think that there will be no collaboration models with McLaren in the future. Then, it cannot be said that there is no collaboration model after this.
That’s because OnePlus has launched a collaboration model with Star Wars in the OnePlus 5T and the Avengers in OnePlus 6. There is no denying the possibility that there will be another collaboration model with Star Wars, the Avengers, or new manufacturers and content in the future.
Personally, I wanted you to continue collaborating with McLaren, so I’m very sorry about this. However, the publicist also said that he hopes to see each other again in the future, so there may be another collaboration in the future.
