Why you should buy OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition


OnePlus is celebrating its fourth anniversary in India with style, launching the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition for the country and a few others.

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition might be particularly topical right now because of the buzz that the movie is generating, which makes the phone an interesting one to have.

At an event in Mumbai on Thursday, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition. Those who are expecting any kind of cosmetic hardware changes will be disheartened.

However, for reasons only known to itself, the company has decided only to bestow The Last Jedi-themed handset on the good folks of India, as well as a smattering of fans in Scandinavia. Priced at Rs 38,999 for the 8GB/128GB variant, the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition will go on sale on Amazon.in, OnePlusStore.in, and at various offline OnePlus experience stores from December 15 - the same day Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases.

The wallpapers were extracted from a system update for the regular OnePlus 5T by XDA Developers member Quinny899, and look stunning. It comes with a gorgeous 6-inch bezel-less AMOLED panel, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The rear metallic panel also has Star Wars printed at the lower back in red colour and the company's logo takes its usual spot at the center. It features a white paint job, black power button, SIM tray, and volume rocker. There is also another version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This means, there are official Star Wars wallpapers preloaded, the entire interface (including the app drawer) is a rather likeable mix of red accents along with either black or white.
