While Huawei has been partnering with Porsche Design for two years for limited-edition smartphones, OnePlus has just announced its partnership with McLaren. At the launch ceremony of December 11, 2018 "Salute to Speed", the two companies will unveil "the first step" of their collaboration. We look forward to a OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone.
OnePlus is no stranger to collaborations over the years, the most notable being Marvel Studios for publishing The Avengers and Disney for the Star Wars edition. What this OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition will bring to the table is still unknown. It can be a special design, a special paintjob or a special lump. What's important is that partnering with a brand like McLaren will make OnePlus and the OnePlus 6T even more attractive.
"McLaren and OnePlus are born in the same way – with a great dream to create something special. Starting from scratch, we challenged ourselves never to settle. We are unveiling today a true testament to innovation and speed, "said Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus. Zak Brown, McLaren Racing's CEO, said, "The OnePlus brand is synonymous with speed and power, two values that McLaren also strives to respect for every car we build. Bringing together the inventive and pioneering spirit shared by OnePlus and McLaren is a strong statement of intention to harness our collective powers and innovate in innovative ideas and technologies. "
Mark your calendars for December 11, because we will know more during the official unveiling. If we hear anything important from now on, we will make sure to let you know!
