Before the launch of the OnePlus 5T Lava Red color variant, many were looking forward to something else – the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition.
If this somehow disappointed you, well, the Chinese OEM has unveiled what you wanted – the Star Wars Edition of the 5T, but this phone will not be available for purchase until December 15, which is a little over a week from now. If you are a fan of the Star Wars franchise, this is a phone worth looking forward to.
The OnePlus 5T is already leading the way as the company’s best-selling phone yet. With the launch of the Star Wars Edition, the company is obviously looking to cash in on more units. It’s not just OnePlus that is enticing fans with a new color variant of its latest flagships. Samsung already did it with the Galaxy S8 and Google recently followed suit with a “Stormtrooper” variant of the Pixel 2, but the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition is definitely stealing the show.
As you would expect, this is a limited edition. To make it worse, the phone is likely to be exclusive to the Indian market, which is not a surprise given the market’s contribution to the recent success of the company.
In case you didn’t know, December 15th is the same day that the Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will be unveiled in theaters. As for the phone itself, you get a white rear panel with black and red highlights. The phone also has a Star Wars theme, but it’s still unclear if it will come in both variants. The price details are also yet to be confirmed, but the rest of the specs remain unchanged.
