OnePlus fans are giddy with excitement for the firm’s latest smartphone launch which will take place tomorrow, October 10. That’s because the tech giant will finally unveil its new OnePlus 7T device for the UK, Europe and US customers having already debuted in India last month.
The OnePlus 7T is not only a special phone, but it also shows just how far the Shenzhen-based firm has come since it was founded back in 2013.
Just like previous OnePlus devices, the 7T is crammed with the latest specs and buttery-smooth software in the form of OxygenOS. Plus, the phone also boasts a capable triple-camera system, a fabulously smooth 90Hz display and a hefty 3,800mAh battery.
Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, combined with the phone’s 8GB of RAM, means the 7T should deliver blisteringly fast performance whether you’re gaming or just endlessly scrolling through your Instagram feed.
But while the OnePlus 7T is certainly a capable phone, it may not be the fastest handset the spirited tech giant reveals tomorrow.
In addition to the 7T, it’s also very possible the OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition will launch tomorrow as well.
Both of these phones are expected sport similar designs to that of the OnePlus 7 Pro that debuted back in May. Meaning they will likely exterminate bezels in favour of an all-screen design and leverage a pop-up front camera for selfies.
The McLaren Edition of the 7 Pro is expected to be a souped-up smartphone internally and externally with its design honouring the motor racing team’s lineup of flashy and exuberant cars, at least if alleged renders from OnLeaks and 91Mobiles are to be believed.
The images in question revealed the McLaren Edition to have a carbon fibre patterned rear panel and a classy flash of orange subtly traced along the bottom of the device.
Internally, it’s expected the McLaren Edition will come with the best specs in any OnePlus phone to date. Our bet is the phone will also be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus, but have more RAM than any other OnePlus 7T model.
This was certainly the case last year when OnePlus unveiled its 6T flagship but soon after launched the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition that boasts a whopping 10GB of RAM. Even a year later this phone still has more RAM than most flagships that have debuted in 2019.
More RAM doesn’t necessarily mean faster performance, but it generally allows a phone to keep more apps suspended in the background at once. With that said, all past OnePlus phones have been pretty good at this.OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has teased a new McLaren Edition smartphone (Image: Twitter @PeteLau)The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition has more RAM than any other 6T variant (Image: OnePlus)Alleged renders of the OnePlus 7T Pro and OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren edition have leaked (Image: OnLeaks • 91Mobiles)

Why do we think OnePlus will launch a McLaren Edition of the 7T Pro? Well, apart from purported renders of the device, the firm’s CEO Pete Lau has also teased its imminent reveal.
Lau recently posted an image of what appeared to be packaging for the device. A box was shown with a carbon fibre texture and subtle orange strip running down its side.
Express.co.uk will be in the crowd at OnePlus’ packed launch event tomorrow. So stay tuned for all the latest announcements.
