OnePlus lauched OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition on Third Anniversary

OnePlus lauched OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition on Third Anniversary

The device had been introduced in India yesterday, and it's priced at Rs. 38,999 ($607) for those of you who live in the country. The main goal of the launch is to celebrate the release of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie" in India. Slowly, as you turn the phone over, the newness will reveal itself. the spines are white in colour, though that is not all. Specs-wise, things stay the same for the new variant.

OnePlus is also bundling a special edition case for this special edition smartphone. It ships with Star Wars-themed wallpapers. There are some exclusive Star Wars: The Last Jedi wallpapers thrown in as well but no Star Wars icons in sight (which would have been a lot cooler). Next item inside the box is the proprietary Dash Charger in a mix of white and red. There's the usual paperwork followed by a OnePlus Star Wars sticker which looks awesome, ready to go on the laptop. We haven't seen it yet (maybe this weekend) but for now, we're trying to decide if we want this Star Wars version of the new OnePlus 5T. The case is made of TPU plastic, and has decent build quality.

We regard the handset as the finest OnePlus has ever released and one of the best 2017 has to offer overall.

There are a total of ten wallpapers inside the download, they feature Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, stormtroopers, the Star Wars logo, a First Order wallpaper, a rebel alliance logo wallpaper, and the new Praetorian Guards. The sleek red on white look is accentuated by the red coloured alert slider. It's a dark theme with red accents layered throughout the OS. On the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition, it's been applied on top of the phone's aluminium unibody, making the phone one of the few metal models that doesn't slip through your fingers. It mimics the salt-covered surface of the planet Crait, featured in the film.

However, the MSF cautions the figures are "the most conservative" estimates. Myanmar's army has claimed 400 have died since the start of the crisis.

So, Should You Buy One?

This red mineral covered planet is the inspiration behind all the red elements on the Star Wars Edition OnePlus 5T. The phone's back cover skips on the lead black colouring on the standard OnePlus 5T and goes with a bright white coating that at first glance appears to be a replication of the stormtrooper uniform (or suit).

Other than the design and the theme, it's everything that the OnePlus 5T is. It doesn't offer anything new but comes with an attractive design which is, of course, a treat for the Star Wars fans.

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition smartphone is available in 8GB RAM coupled with 128GB expandable internal storage at Rs. 38999 via Amazon India and the official OnePlus India store.
