OnePlus has teamed up with Disney to launch the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition in India to celebrate the release of the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In addition to the paint job, OnePlus added subtle detailing touches in the form of a black power button, SIM tray, and volume rocker. The limited OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition is basically styled in black and white and pays homage to the style of Stormtroopers - who is a fictional soldier in the Star Wars. And it certainly stands out when compared to the regular black and red variants of the OnePlus 5T.More news: NASA to announce major planet-hunting discovery made possible by AI

It just feels like a surreal mix of Star Wars legacy and smartphones that every fan of the franchise will feel nostalgic, hyperactive and happy when unboxing this special edition. The red of the Alert slider is based on the red-coloured mineral mined on the planet.
The standard 8GB model of the OnePlus 5T by itself is a fantastic deal at ₹37,999 ($580), and the fact that the Star Wars variant costs just ₹38,999 ($600) makes it an absolute steal. While it did appeal to me, a lot of people might have preferred the front to be white, as was the case with the soft gold variant of the OnePlus 5. All of these is backed by a non-removable 3300mAh battery. Apart from this, there are special Star Wars wallpapers which are really cool and fulfils the overall experience the phone demands. This does give the phone a nice-dual tone design. 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 easily.More news: USA says hacker to plead guilty for role in 2016 cyber attacks
