Under the hood, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is the same as the regular OnePlus 7T Pro, apart from one key difference — the amount of RAM. The device comes with a massive 12GB of RAM, four gigabytes or 50 percent more than on the regular OnePlus 7T Pro. We’re going to say this straight away — it’s more RAM than you could possibly need right now. However, in the long term (maybe two or three years down the line) you might find that it helps.
The software is largely the same as what you get on the regular OnePlus 7T Pro, with a few small McLaren-themed differences. There is a unique set of wallpapers that match the look and feel of the phone, and the main clock widget has a font that looks a bit more ‘sporty’ than the one on the regular widget. You also get a special fingerprint sensor animation, horizon light colour, and a McLaren icon pack for the OxygenOS interface. All of these go well with each other and match the exterior of the phone.
As with the regular edition, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition comes with Android 10-based OxygenOS 10 out-of-the-box, and is on the same software update path as well. This means that the device will receive software updates alongside the OnePlus 7T Pro.
