OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition smartphone has been launched in India at an event in Mumbai on Thursday. Launched just ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie in India, the limited edition smartphone features a white back panel with a Star Wars logo on it, a red Alert slider, apart from a bunch of preloaded wallpapers and customisations. The company has also bundled a rugged case with the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition, one that is modelled on Kylo Ren’s helmet from the movie.
Getting really geeky, OnePlus explains the white back panel of OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition smartphone is inspired by the white-coloured salt plains of the mineral planet Crait, featured in the movie. The red of the Alert slider is based on the red-coloured mineral mined on the planet. The box – which also features Star Wars branding – also contains Star Wars stickers, apart from the standard OnePlus ones. The Star Wars partnership for the OnePlus 5T Limited Edition is only in India and a few Nordic regions, OnePlus said, such as Denmark, Finland, and Sweden.
OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition price in India
The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition price in India has been set at Rs. 38,999. The smartphone will only be available in an 8GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage variant, with OnePlus choosing to forego the 6GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage variant. This makes it Rs. 1,000 more expensive than its regular edition counterpart.
As for availability, the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition will go on sale from midnight (12am IST) of Friday, December 15 via Amazon India and OnePlusStore.in. It will also go on sale via OnePlus experience zones in Bengaluru and Noida from Friday – the same day that Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases in India.
