Why you should buy OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition

Share

Securing a Star Wars tie-in seems like something OnePlus could have used to sell a Imperial Destroyer-load of OnePlus 5T smartphones. Well here's a reason not to be.

The new OnePlus 5T variant is the most expensive model of OnePlus coinciding with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi - a much awaited eight chapter of the Star wars saga.

OnePlus will showcase the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition at nine pop-up stores across India on December 16 and 17. With features such as a larger 18:9 aspect ratio screen, Face ID, and tweaks to the software, the OnePlus 5T is definitely among the better phones to buy in the Rs 30,000-40,000 category. Downloading them is probably easier, but you can also access these directly on the OnePlus 5T if you own it - it'll just take a few little hacks. The smartphone is priced at Rs 38,999 and comes in one storage variant which is the 8 GB RAM and 128 GB option. And it certainly stands out when compared to the regular black and red variants of the OnePlus 5T.

The phone has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

According to OnePlus, the 5T Star Wars Limited Edition smartphone is inspired by the white-coloured salt plains of the mineral planet Crait, featured in the movie. The company officially revealed the phone in India on December 2, but chose not to release details about its pricing or say whether or not it would be exclusive to the Indian subcontinent. The sleek red on white look is accentuated by the red coloured alert slider. But it's still a worthwhile purchase purely for the sandstone white finish, and the excellent protective case in the box.

The smartphone comes with a specially crafted Star Wars theme. Further, there is also a customised theme with red accent, black and white colours. The differences are subtle and entirely aesthetic, but these simple touches make the device that much more attractive, especially if you're a fan of the Star Wars film series. OnePlus has also included a big and burly case modeled on Kylo Ren - the villain in The Last Jedi to put in extremely simplistic terms.
