OnePlus has decided to reward the buyers of the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition. The first 37 buyers of the limited edition phone will get a personalized “Star Wars” constellation and certificate of ownership along with the details of their named star, according to PhoneArena.
OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition – how it’s different
For this initiative, OnePlus has partnered with the Star Register, the world’s biggest commercial registry of stars. It must be noted that the International Astronomical Union may not recognize many of these names. So, a star, which you believe is named after you, could get a name from someone else as well.
The Chinese smartphone maker launched the Star Wars Edition a couple of weeks back, honoring the latest Star Wars film, The Last Jedi. All the specifications of the limited edition phone are the same as the regular OnePlus 5T except for the appearance based on the Star Wars theme. The limited edition phone comes in white along with the red notification slider and Star Wars logo beneath the fingerprint scanner. Also, the customer gets the default Star Wars wallpapers with the phone.
The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, and is available only in 8GB RAM with 128GB on-board storage. The same as the OnePlus 5T, the Star Wars Edition features a 6.01-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 along with the 16MP+20MP camera. The smartphone is powered by a 3300 mAh battery, and is equipped with the company’s proprietary Dash charging technology. Further, the Star Wars Edition comes with the Kylo Ren inspired case, which comes packed in the box itself.
OnePlus 5T – a must-own phone
The OnePlus 5T was among the most-awaited phones this year. The handset clocked impressive scores in the Geekbench CPU performance in the single-core test, and the multi-core test. Talking of the audio, it is the same as the OnePlus 5, loud and clear but low on substance and bass. The phone gets full marks as far as hardware is concerned. It comes encased in the aluminum body and three phase black coating, followed by two sandblastings and anti-fingerprint finish.
The OnePlus 5T camera is capable of snapping bright and sharp photos. Additionally, the zoomed-in pictures do not have any blur. The bokeh effect is great, highlighting the subjects rather than the landscapes. The OnePlus 5T have ditched the secondary telephoto lens at the back for enhancing the low-light photography capabilities. Instead of OIS, OnePlus has opted for EIS on the dual-camera setup at the back.
Separately, the company announced this week that it is bringing 5T’s Face Unlock feature to all the OnePlus 5 models. The feature will be made available via a software update, but the company has still to announce the date for rolling out the software update. The feature has received good reviews with some saying it is to be quicker than the iPhone X Face ID that uses depth-sensing hardware for its feature. Even though the OnePlus Face Unlock feature is faster, it is less secure as it uses only the camera rather than specific sensors.
