OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition to have 10GB of RAM, 256GB of storage

OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition to have 10GB of RAM, 256GB of storage



OnePlus is announcing a special edition 6Tin cooperation with McLaren on December 11. The partnership was revealed a couple of days ago, but no details about the smartphone have been outed on that occasion.
Now a new report says we should expect a OnePlus 6T with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage to be that special edition device. That would make it king of RAM in the smartphone space, since not one other device has so far gone beyond 10GB. The handset should also have the McLaren logo on the back, to set itself apart from the other 6T variants.
The OnePlus 6T McLaren edition will be introduced in India on December 12, the day after the London event. Expect this to be a limited edition product, so if you're interested in the bragging rights that come with owning a phone with 10GB of RAM, make sure you'll be ready to purchase one as soon as it drops.

WhatsApp Consecutive Voice Messages, Group Call Shortcut Spotted in Android Beta


HIGHLIGHTS

  • WhatsApp Group Call Shortcut arrives in Android beta
  • It comes with Android beta version 2.18.363
  • The other feature allows users to play voice messages consecutively
WhatsApp is rolling out updates to its Android beta app that brings the code of two key new features called Consecutive Voice Messages and Group Call Shortcut. One of the new functionalities enables WhatsApp to play multiple audio messages consecutively, while the other provides a shortcut button for users to make group calls. Both the new features are not available for WhatsApp for Android beta testers as of now, and will be remotely enabled in the future. According to a report, the code of features have arrived for Android users with beta versions 2.18.362 and 2.18.363. Notably, the same features had previously rolled out to WhatsApp beta for iOS.
First up is the Consecutive Voice Messages feature that enables the WhatsApp Android app to play consecutive voice messages one after the other, WABetaInfo reports. The feature works when WhatsApp detects two or more voice messages. All you need to do is to tap the Play button on the first audio, following which WhatsApp will automatically play all the other voice messages in a sequence. In the end, you will get a sound alert as well. The functionality was previously seen on WhatsApp for iOS (version 2.18.100). As mentioned, the feature is only visible in the code of Android beta version 2.18.362 app, and will reportedly be remotely enabled.
Coming to the second new feature, the latest WhatsApp for Android iOS beta version 2.18.363 bring UI changes for group calls. This feature was earlier spotted on WhatsApp for iOS. When the feature rolled out to your app, there will be a new group call button in group chats. Once you tap on that button, it opens up a sheet with all the members of the group. Further, you will have to tap the audio or video call button to start the group audio or video call. WABetaInfo notes that the feature is disabled by default, and should be remotely enabled in future beta updates.
