OnePlus in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd to commemorate the former's 3rd India anniversary and the latter's upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie has announced the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition.
The company will host the special event in Mumbai on December 14 at IMAX Wadala. Interested fans can go to the OnePlus-Lucasfilm programme by booking tickets for Rs 999 on Paytm Mall app. The registration is slated to go live on December 7.
"Star Wars has enthralled generations with their masterful storytelling from a galaxy far, far away, with the best in technology and strong engagement with their fan community. Similarly, OnePlus too has a dedicated community that is deeply passionate about the best in technology, design and attention to detail. With this befitting association, OnePlus community will be able to thoroughly enjoy the legacy of both the brands," the company said in a statement.
OnePlus India has confirmed that the new OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition will available on Amazon.in, oneplusstore.in and OnePlus experience zones in Bangalore and Noida from December 15.
OnePlus India has also teased the OnePlus 5T Stars Wars limited edition video on YouTube [check below]. It perfectly captures the essence of the George Lucas blockbuster franchisee character stormtrooper and is sure to find traction among OnePlus fans and movie buffs to add it to their collection.
In the clip, the device is seen to have movie's Stormtrooper (first order) costume matching coloured theme — black, red and white.
The new OnePlus 5T also comes with crimson-hued 'Star Wars' engraving on the back and power button. The volume rockers and the company's logo is painted with raven black and the rest of the back shell is snowy white. In total, it resembles a stormtrooper. Even the wallpaper theme on the display shows the helmet of the Star Wars soldier. Fans can also expect the device to come with exclusive themes and ringtones.
How much will OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition cost in India?
As of now, there is no word on the price. But, going by previous release pattern, it is expected to cost same or have Rs 1,000 - Rs 2,000 increase over the original model.
Currently, OnePlus 5T comes with two configurations—6GB RAM+64GB storage and 8GB RAM+128GB storage — for Rs 32,999 and Rs 37,999, respectively.
Except for the design, we are sure that there will be no other changes in terms of internal hardware, as the company has already hurt original OnePlus 5 owners by launching the new 5T series with major structural and camera upgrades within four months after the launch of the former. It will be unwise for the company to incorporate more internal changes in the Star Wars edition and risk inviting wrath from fans.
