The new OnePlus 5T was unveiled just a few weeks back. The Chinese brand has now unveiled a new variant of the phone known as the ‘Star Wars Special Edition’. The launch event was held in Mumbai on 14th December along with the world premiere of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’. The phone comes with a few design changes, an in-built theme along with a bunch of exclusive wallpapers.
The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Special Edition is available in a Sandstone White texture. In comparison, the 5T is available in only Midnight Black. We can expect more colours to launch later, as it happened with the OnePlus 5. We tried out the new OnePlus 5T for a while and in our opinion, the Sandstone finish on this one isn’t as good as the OnePlus One. It has a more polished finish now which seems to be comparatively more slippery. The volume rockers, SIM ejector and the power button are coloured in black. Whereas the alert slider has a ‘crystal mineral’ feel to it but as said by OnePlus, the colour isn’t exactly red. We felt it to be slightly pinkish.
The phone is available in only one configuration, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. Rest of all the specifications as well as features stay the same. On the software front, there’s a new Star Wars theme provided along with three options: Default, Light and Dark. When you choose the Star Wars theme, the accent colour automatically changes to a special shade of Red. There are 10 exclusive Star Wars wallpapers preinstalled in this edition.
The new Star Wars edition phone is priced at Rs. 38,999, a thousand rupees costlier than the normal edition with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Since this is a limited edition phone, it will be on sale for just a week, starting from today until December 22nd. So if you are a Star Wars fan and want to grab this limited edition phone, now is the best time.
