OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition announced may go on sale this month

There are some potential spoilers for The Last Jedi in the copy below.

Present during India's Comic-Con, OnePlus (who is one of the sponsors) briefly teased the upcoming OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition.

The silver-grey edges and back panel are there to evoke the colours and style of the rather unique lightsaber main antagonist and pseudo emo-Sith Kylo Ren uses in both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

In the photo of the new phone that OnePlus shared, we see there is not much difference between the regular OnePlus 5T and this new special edition.

As per the design is concerned, OnePlus revealed posters of the smartphone that closely hinted it'll feature a customized software themed on Star Wars.

We can now confirm that the phone will go on sale in India on December 15 on Amazon India, OnePlus online store as well as offline experience zones in Bengaluru and Noida. Sure, it may be more affordable than other flagships, but it's probably more expensive than the regular OnePlus 5T that bears no Star Wars markings on it. The launch event will take place at Carnival Cinemax Wadala in Mumbai. Rather than come in red as earlier reported, the phone is white with the familiar Star Wars logo engraved in red ink at the bottom of the phone. You can be a part of the event by booking the tickets for Rs 999 on Paytm, starting December 7 from 10:00 am onwards.

Yet OnePlus seems to have a tendency to sell its Limited Edition phones locally. The alert slider now stands out in stark contrast to the white and black with a red accent. For example, do you remember the OnePlus 3T Colette Edition which was made available only in France?

The company will make their Logo of OnePlus just below the camera as usual.

It sucks that the rest of the world is being snubbed, but this is the second time since the phone launched that Asia's getting a hot new color. It sports 6.1-inch Full Optic Amoled display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
