OnePlus’s value proposition propelled the Chinese brand as the number one brand in the premium smartphone segment. The value proposition still exists but OnePlus is gradually moving towards a more premium brand. The new OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is a testament to that as at Rs 58,999, it is the most expensive phone by the brand.
Being a McLaren Edition phone, there are hues and shades of the Formula One racing team. The McLaren papaya-orange shade can be spotted around the edges. The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition smartphone has a glass unibody design that look premium and a tad delicate. The glossy back — prone to fingerprints — has a peculiar embossed design that may not be appreciated by everyone. The shades of McLaren are also visible around the camera rim where one can find three lenses. A nice touch is the special hard plastic case that comes lined with Alcantara — the durable fabric used in the sports car.
On the front, there is a 6.67-inch 90Hz Fluid Display. You get a supersonic viewing experience in a full screen display courtesy the pop-up selfie camera. The selfie camera also offers face unlock support and takes a couple of seconds to become functional. The front camera has a 16MP sensor that manages to take impressive selfies in suitable lighting conditions.
The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition features a 48MP primary rear camera with f/1.6 aperture along with an 8MP telephoto lens and a 16MP ultra angle camera with f/2 aperture. Both day and night time shots on the handset were good. The daylight images turned out vivid and sharp. Even the images captured using the Nightscape mode did not lack any details.
With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, paired with 12GB RAM, this is one of the most powerful phones around and delivers stellar performance, which is further enhanced by OxygenOS based on Android 10. To support this powerhouse chassis, OnePlus equips a 4085mAh battery with Warp Charge 30T fast charging — ensuring that even if you run out of juice, 30 minutes of plug time can lead to 70% charging. .
At Rs 58,999, this is one of the more expensive, powerful and arguably the best Android smartphone you can get your hands on. If you aren’t in the mood to splash that kind of cash, there’s always the OnePlus 7T Pro (minus the McLaren pizzazz) for about Rs 5,000 less. Or there’s always the iPhone 11 which you might just be able to snag just under Rs 60,000.
