On the eve of the release of the eighth Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, OnePlus has launched a limited edition of its flagship smartphone based on the same theme. The device was launched in India at an event in Mumbai. The limited edition smartphone essentially has the same specs as the original OnePlus 5T but what’s different is its colour theme and visual design.
The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition has a white back panel with the official Star Wars logo on it, along with a red alert slider. The phone even comes with a 10 pre-loaded special Star Wars wallpapers and other software customizations. It is bundled in a Star Wars branded box and comes with Star Wars stickers and a rugged case that is based on Kylo Ren’s helmet.
OnePlus explains the choice of the sandstone white back panel design it has used in the smartphone by saying that it is inspired by the white salt plains of the mineral planet ‘Crait’ from the movie The Last Jedi. The Red colour of the slider is from the mineral that is mined on the planet. The overall theme on the phone is black and white with red accents. The mobile device is being launched in partnership with Star Wars in select Nordin regions, like Denmark, Sweden, and Finland as well.
