In under 24 hours OnePlus will take to the stage in New York and announce the OnePlus 5T. The details and specs of the phone are hardly a secret with it spilling out all over the internet in the last week or two. Overnight XDA have revealed what is possibly a limited edition Star Wars-themed OnePlus 5T.
XDA Developers were approached by a reader who had uncovered some interesting details within the leaked OnePlus 5 Oreo build. They had discovered a Star Wars reference with a new accent colour called “Star Wars”. This colour, with the hex value of #ffff2837, resembles the colour of the cloak worn by Rey which can be seen in the IMAX poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Also, within the OnePlus launcher APK file there is also a file called “customization_workspace_star_wars” which is how it will look when you first boot it up.
After digging further XDA found mention of: DEVICE_CUSTOM_STAR_WARS. While not conclusive, combined with reference to that line as a device within the build properties of the device it seems a fair assumption that OnePlus have partnered with Disney and are going to release a Limited Edition Star Wars OnePlus 5T. It won’t be the first time OnePlus have partnered with companies to produce themed devices having partnered with Colette and Castelbajac previously. Partnering with a company as big as Disney is a huge coup for OnePlus and will push them into the mainstream undoubtedly.
Hopefully we will hear more about the limited edition tomorrow morning and we will give you all the OnePlus 5T details and local availability and pricing as they come to hand. Who wants a red Star Wars Edition OnePlus 5T, aside from me?
