We go hands-on with OnePlus’ latest partnership smartphone, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. Sponsored by the popular F1 racing team, the McLaren Edition adds another 2GB of RAM, even faster charging, and a cool new paint job. We even had the occasion to test the Phone against the OnePlus 6T and the OnePlus 6 using our new Speed Test G.
Also, the era of in-screen Camera sensors is here. Now, instead of notches, we get holes in the screen. Two phones came out this week sporting this new design: the Samsung Galaxy A8s and the Honor View 20. The Galaxy A8s has a triple-camera setup on the back and a 6.4-inch screen. The Honor View 20 carries a 48-megapixel camera and some neat software tricks to speed up your connections.
We also have a $100,000 contest to give up your smartphone for a year, our full Red Hydrogen One review, and a huge leak for Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
