The OnePlus 5T might be getting a Star Wars Edition

Between now and the theatrical release of The Last Jedi, you’re likely to see a lot of tie in products. And by “a lot” we mean enough to fill a Death Star multiple times over.

However, one in particular might stand out for those of the gadget persuasion; how does a OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition sound?

According to a now-deleted post on the XDA Developers Forum (via SlashGear), the OnePlus Oxygen OS code is turning up references to a Star Wars-themed device.

Not least the line reading: “DEVICE_CUSTOM_STAR_WARS”

Hmmm, interesting…

The OnePlus 5T makes its official debut tomorrow, so should the special edition come to fruition we’ll likely hear about it at the unveiling event in New York.

Given Disney and Lucasfilm is usually really careful with licensing, this could be a significant feather in the cap for OnePlus and a sign of its recent mainstream exposure.

Unboxed already?

Late last week, the new flagship handset was revealed in a tell-all unboxing gallery, which also included the spec sheet.

The sheet confirmed some of the major specifications for the device, including the larger 6.01-inch, 18:9 AMOLED display and Snapdragon 835 processor.

Unfortunately the device will ship running Android 7.1.1, but the Google Assistant will be on board.

The full spec sheet reads as follows:

  • Dimensions: 156.1 x 75 x 7.3mm
  • Weight: 5.7oz (162g)
  • Material: Anodized Aluminum
  • OS: OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • Display: 6.01-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2160 resolution (401ppi)
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (Octa-core, 10mn, up to 2.45GHz)
  • GPU: Adreno 540
  • RAM: 6/8GB LPDDR4X
  • Storage: 64/128GB UFS 2.1
  • Sensors: Fingerprint, All, Accelerometer, G-sensor, Electronic Compass, Gyroscope, Proximity, Ambient Light Sensor, RGB, Sensor Hub
  • Ports: USB-C, Dual nano-SIM, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Battery: 3,300mAh non-removable battery, Dash Charge
  • Buttons: On screen navigational support, power button, volume rocket, Alert Slider

Seeing as all this has already been revealed, it’d be nice if OnePlus had something up its sleeve for the unveiling event.

Like a Star Wars Edition perhaps?
