OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition channels the Force in smartphone form

The movie tie-in klaxon has gone off, alerting us to a Star Wars: The Last Jedi inspired OnePlus 5T, just in time for the film’s December 15 theatrical debut.

Spoiler Alert: There are some potential spoilers for The Last Jedi in the copy below. If you don’t want to read about potential theories gleaned from the trailers, don’t read on.

Sporting a classic Star Wars chunky text logo etched in Dark Side red on its rear, the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition draws heavily from the dark tones that seems to be running through The Last Jedi, if the latest trailer is anything to go by.

The silver-grey edges and back panel are there to evoke the colours and style of the rather unique lightsaber main antagonist and pseudo emo-Sith Kylo Ren uses in both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

While a textured crimson finish can be found on the OnePlus 5T’s alert toggle switch, again drawing inspiration from the lightsaber activation switch on Ren’s lightsaber, as well as the engines of a spacecraft he appears to use to blow up a ship with his mother on board – or so we’re led to speculate from the trailer.

Aside from the cosmetic features, the Star Wars Limited Edition OnePlus 5T is pretty much the same as the vanilla handset, which itself is a worth upgrade to the OnePlus 5 that made its debut earlier this year. A Star Wars theme appears to be on offer, which should offer a little more from a galaxy far, far away on the phone’s software side.

The Star Wars Limited Edition will be launched in India on December 14 and will be an Amazon exclusive. As yet, there’s no word on the themed phone coming to any other countries, which may be a bit of a disappointment for fans of both Star Wars and OnePlus.
