OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition Announced, Exclusive to India
OnePlus has become a fan of releasing exclusive editions of its devices in limited runs. Last year, we saw a special Colette edition of the OnePlus 3T with stunning matte black coloring and a Colette logo on the back. Shortly after, the smartphone maker released a Midnight Black limited run of the OnePlus 3T, and subsequently a Midnight Black version of the OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 5 itself also got a special, rather extravagant Castelbajac edition, also through Colette, and the OnePlus 5T got a limited Lava Red in China.
Now, just two weeks before Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinemas, OnePlus is producing another limited edition variant of the OnePlus 5T to celebrate the occasion. The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition was announced at Comic Con India, and apart from customized software has a redesigned exterior featuring a white finish on the back, a black OnePlus logo under the fingerprint sensor, and a red Star Wars logo on the bottom.
The front of the device retains the black finish, as does the volume and power buttons, and the alert slider stands in stark contrast to the white and black with a red accent.
The OnePlus 5T Start Wars Limited Edition will be available for pre-purchase in India starting December 14, a day before the theatrical release of The Last Jedi. Tickets for the phone’s launch event will available to the public for ₹999 ($15) starting December 7 at 10 a.m. on Paytm, and include access to a pop-up store, demo stations, and a “surprise.”
There’s no word on whether the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition will make its way to the rest of the world, but we’re hoping to hear more from OnePlus in the coming weeks.
