This week in Android: OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and new Galaxy S10 leaks

This week, we look at the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, new in-screen cameras, plus a massive leak of the Galaxy S10!

Published onDecember 16, 2018

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition

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.
