OnePlus has announced a limited edition ‘Star Wars’ variant of its popular OnePlus 5T smartphone exclusively for India. The new model is differentiated from its peers by a distinctive wallpaper and exterior design color.
The limited edition Star Wars OnePlus 5T will release on December 14 in Indian markets, one day ahead of the new Star Wars The Last Jedi movie.
The OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition has a deep Black front and a White rear complete with Star Wars branding. The notification slider is finished in Red, as are the volume buttons. Plus, there’s a one of a kind First Order Stormtrooper wallpaper that comes pre-installed.
The Star Wars edition looks suitably different from the recently released Lava Red-colored OnePlus 5T, which itself is only available in China. Unfortunately, we’ve heard no word if the new special edition device will be available as the 6GB RAM, 64GB or 8GB, 128GB model, or perhaps both. We expect the device to otherwise be identical to regular OnePlus 5T models, which means the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6-inch Optic OLED display, 3,300mAh battery, and dual camera assembly.
Customers interested in the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition may also buy tickets to a movie launch event, to be held on December 14 in Mumbai. One ticket costs IR999 (approximately $15 USD). OnePlus is promising customers a surprise at the event, but there are no details as to what, exactly, this will be. The device itself will be made available for purchase at a nearby pop-up store in India. Tickets to the movie premiere will be available while supply lasts from 7pm local time on Thursday, December 7.
As mentioned, it looks as though the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition will only be available in the Indian market. However, there’s a chance it expands to more markets. For India, this is good news, and should help OnePlus consolidate its number two position in India’s premium smartphone market. OnePlus has released a trailer showcasing the new OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition, which we’ve embedded below. Take a look, and may the force be with you!
