Barely two weeks after the launch of company's flagship, the OnePlus 5T, the Chinese smartphone brand is set to launch the Star Wars Limited Edition variant of the phone in India.

As we can tell from the posters, the front of the special edition OnePlus 5T retains the same black finish, as do the volume and power buttons.

This phone was revealed first at the India-based Comic Con-Event in Bengaluru.

It's official, OnePlus is launching Star Wars edition of OnePlus 5T. As you would expect, there is also a Star Wars logo etched in red on the back.

As the name suggests, the device will feature a customized software that is themed on Star Wars.

According to some reports, the new edition will be exclusive to India and it will be announced on December 16 in India at an event in Mumbai.




As for the availability, the smartphone will go on sale the same day as the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is on December 15.

Launching on December 14 (that's a day before the USA release of The Last Jedi), the special edition trades the black aluminum backside for Stormtrooper white, black button accents, and a blood red alert slider button. There appears to be a red alert slider that is in contrast to the white and black design.

There's even a video promo for the handset that combines elements of the recent The Last Jedi trailers with OnePlus 5T footage to make it look like the phone is part of the movie.

Releasing special edition models is not something new to OnePlus. Due to the popularity of the Midnight Black color, the same was released as a standard edition with the OnePlus 5. It sports 6.1-inch Full Optic Amoled display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The OnePlus 5T runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and it is unknown whether the OS has received an update to Android 8.0 out of the box unlike the recently launched phones like Sony Xperia XZ1 and the HTC U11.
