OnePlus Will Name A Star After A Few OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition Owners
To celebrate its third anniversary in India, OnePlus launched the Star Wars limited edition OnePlus 5T in India at a price of Rs. 38999 on the 14th of December. It is the priciest OnePlus device ever sold in India and to commemorate its consumers, OnePlus has decided to name a star after the first 37 customers who bought the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition.
In association with Star Register, the first 37 customers will receive a personalized “Star Wars” constellation and certificate of ownership with the details of their very own named star. It is worth noting that many of these names are not recognised by the International Astronomical Union. This means that the star you think is named after you could also be named after someone else depending on who they got it registered for.
But, it is, after all, a star named after you, and you will have a certificate to show for.
The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition has a white coloured back panel with a sandstone finish as a homage to the Planet Crait and a red Star Wars logo. The interesting thing here is that the alert slider is also red in colour.
The limited edition Star Wars OnePlus 5T is available only in the 8GB RAM variant with 128GB of onboard storage. Apart from the colour scheme and the Star Wars logo, there is nothing different in terms of hardware.
The OnePlus 5T has a 6-inch Full Optic AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1080 px resolution and an 80.5% screen to body ratio.
Under the hood, the OnePlus 5T has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, a 2.4GHz octa-core processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage which cannot be expanded. Powering the device is a 3300 mAh battery which supports OnePlus’ DashCharge technology.
The OnePlus 5T runs stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat with customisability options thanks to the Oxygen OS on top.
Unlike the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T no longer has a secondary telephoto lens at the back. Instead, OnePlus has decided to focus on the device’s low-light photography capabilities. The cameras do not have OIS and OnePlus has decided to go for EIS on the dual camera setup at the back. The device has a 16MP camera with an f/1.7 aperture coupled with a 20MP sensor with the same f/1.7 aperture and field of view, ie no optical zoom. On the front is a 20MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
