The Last Jedi, But New OnePlus?
Rian Johnson directed sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi showed up its trailer on the 9th of October and is around the corner of its release date.
As expected, many merchandise making companies have already made and have started selling t-shirts and mugs of the movie. This seems pretty cliche for tech lovers like us.
We at Android Updated were excited when OnePlus announced a special Star Wars Limited Edition of its flagship OnePlus 5T at the Bangalore Comic Con event. While no launch date was announced by the company at that time, OnePlus finally announced that the company’s latest flagship will launch on 14 December, before going for sale on the 15th of December which is the release date of the movie Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.
Although information on the price and storage variants hasn’t been discussed yet, what we can see from the physical appearance of the phone is that the device houses a white rear with black and red highlights, and what looks like a Star Wars software theme with custom-made wallpaper.
The color scheme of the device has been well thought of, considering the colors and style of the 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.
OnePlus India is also going to host an event on the 14th of December at the IMAX Wadala in Mumbai where fans will receive drinks, snacks, free goodies and get to see the phone in action — tickets will cost Rs. 999 (~$15) and will go on sale December 7.
Other than the cosmetic additions, the device assumed to be the same as the OnePlus 5T Vanilla edition.
