OnePlus' relationship with McLaren has resulted in many handsets being launched, often offered with unique designs and higher specs and price tags than the rest of the handset lineup.For example, last year's McLaren edition of the OnePlus 7 T Pro came with a black-and-orange color scheme and 12 GB of RAM instead of 8 GB. OnePlus announced a branded version of the 6 T at McLaren the previous year.

The collaboration also inspired elements of the Concept One smartphone which was introduced this year by OnePlus at CES. OnePlus said the disappearing camera tech was inspired by the electrochrome roof on the McLaren 720S, as well as including stitched leather on the back of the device.

The partnership 's ending rumors first emerged last week after the OnePlus logo disappeared from McLaren 's partner list on its web site.Ending the relationship means you shouldn't hold your breath later this year for a McLaren version of the all-but-inevitable OnePlus 8T. That said, to have a freshly rebranded souped-up limited edition handset up their sleeve we wouldn't put it past OnePlus.
