OnePlus announced a special Star Wars Limited Edition of its flagship OnePlus 5T at the Bangalore Comic Con event, . While no launch date has been announced it’s likely that the limited edition device will coincide with Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie which is due for release in the second week of December. The company has teased a reveal poster to build the hype around the limited edition OnePlus 5T ahead of the launch. The new variant certainly looks different from the existing black and red variants.
The special edition of the OnePlus 5T has a white finish, along with the Star Wars logo and the OnePlus branding beneath the fingerprint scanner. The front of the device still has the back finish, although the phone’s slider button is now in red colour. The phone will probably ship with default Star Wars themes, ring tones, and effects.
No release date has been announced, although a report from TechPP claims the limited-edition model will be exclusive to India. The report further said the device will be announced on December 16 in India at an event in Mumbai. With just over 15,000 units to be made available, the special variant of the OnePlus 5T is an immediate collector’s edition for Star Wars movie fans.
