OnePlus hints at a OnePlus car -- April Fools joke, or new McLaren product?
OnePlus might have something incredibly big in the works — or it might just be pulling our collective leg.
On its various social media profiles, OnePlus pushed out an image of what appears to be a car and the words “Coming Soon.” The car doesn’t look to be like anything we’ve ever seen before — could it be a OnePlus car?
See the image for yourself in the tweet below:
Our inclination is to think this is an early April Fools joke. There’s never been any rumors or speculation that the company is working on a OnePlus car, nor any product that’s vehicle-specific.
However, the OnePlus 6T does have a McLaren edition, notable for having 10GB of RAM and even faster-charging capabilities than the already-fast charging that comes with the regular OnePlus 6T. Could this social media tease pertain to some sort of new McLaren partnership?
For what it’s worth, most of the comments in the thread below that tweet above are people speculating that it’s an April Fools joke. I suppose we’ll have to wait until Monday to know for sure.
If it does turn out to be a joke, it will just be a testament that April Fools comes earlier and earlier every year. T-Mobile has already gotten into the fun by announcing a T-Mobile phone booth (branded as the “Phone BoothE,” a jab at AT&T’s fake 5G E). See it for yourself here.
What do you think? Is the OnePlus car a joke or is a new McLaren product on the way? Let us know your theories in the comments.
