OnePlus Celebrates 3rd Anniversary with the Launch of OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition
OnePlus, a leading global mobile technology company, today announced the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition, a special edition premium flagship device ahead of release of the new chapter of the popular space saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi (releasing on December 15).
The Star Wars edition’s phone design has been inspired by the planet Crait from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The metal back of the device is painted in Crait white with a precise Star Wars logo in Red printed on the back. Crait is a mineral planet with red sediment under the surface, which is the inspiration behind the red alert slider on the device. Red is, after all, the color of Star Wars traditionally, similar to the alert slider, which has been the long standing feature of OnePlus devices. On the software front, there is a customized red, white and black theme with a set of 10 exclusive Star Wars wallpapers adapted to the new AMOLED immersive screen and a special Kylo Ren phone case along with a special surprise for Star Wars fans packed in an exquisitely designed gift box as a part of the complete offering.
Speaking on the occasion, Kyle Kiang, Head of Global marketing, OnePlus, said, “Our community has inspired us in more ways than one. Their passion and involvement in the brand and the products since the very beginning has inspired us to come up with product that is superior in every way, from design to the overall experience.
We are excited to join the force and dedicate the exquisitely designed Star Wars Limited Edition to the OnePlus and Star Wars fans in India as a part of the 3-year anniversary celebration. Once again, we’ve worked hard to refine every last detail and we are confident that the Star Wars fans will appreciate the homage that we have paid to the iconic Star Wars saga."
The Star Wars edition of the OnePlus 5T phone features the highest resolution dual-camera system of 16 and 20 MP sporting f/1.7 aperture on both lenses for better low light photography. It has a large 6" display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, all while keeping a similar body size as the OnePlus 5. With Dash Charge, OnePlus’ signature powering technology, the user will always get a day's power in half an hour. Powered by the most powerful processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 835 platform, coupled with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the OnePlus 5T can run many apps in the background without a single second of lag, allowing users to switch between apps with ease.
