OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition

On November 16th, the new android OnePlus 5T phone got released. It was highly anticipated by fans worldwide and gained an enormously big audience way before the release. The smart gadget has everything you need in one and is a fair competitor of the iPhone or the S series by Samsung. The combination of hardware and software, alongside with the clear and pure design, is more than incredible and grabs you at first sight.

Recently, the company decided to reach its dedicated fans that love the legendary Star Wars series and made a limited edition model that turned out to be incredible. Alongside with Lewis from UnboxTherapy, we’ll take a look at an unboxing video in which he shows us the device from every angle possible.

Differences in the design

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition features a custom white color scheme that serves to differentiate it from the standard model. In addition to the paint job, OnePlus added subtle detailing touches in the form of a black power button, SIM tray, and volume rocker. As for that bright red Alert Slider… I’m going to need to lie down for a minute.

Unlike the glossy metal back on the standard variant of the OnePlus 5T, the Star Wars edition comes with a Sandstone finish à la OnePlus One and OnePlus 2. The textured coating makes the device incredibly grippy and is generally a huge improvement over the standard 5T.Interestingly, the white color scheme is styled after the planet Crait from The Last Jedi. The surface of the planet is covered with a layer of mineral salts over red soil, and the 5T Star Wars edition tries to emulate the same with the white paint job and the red Alert Slider.

There are new additions on the software front as well. OnePlus has bundled ten exclusive wallpapers with the device, and a new Star Wars theme. The theme should be immediately familiar to you if you used the company’s dark theme in the past, with the main difference being red accents. The accents are layered throughout the settings menu and the quick toggles in the notification pane, and they look great on the AMOLED panel.


In terms of hardware, all is kept the same. The only differences are in the design and some slight in software. Basically you get the same 64GB and 128GB versions and the same Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, clocked at 2.4GHz, with Adreno 540 GPU. Similar to the internal storage, the RAM also has two versions, that are 6GB and 8GB LPDDR4X.


It supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0, which is the latest and highest class version out there. The battery is unremovable and could be charged to the fullest in just 30 minutes, which will give you a day lasting energy that’s just enough for such a powerful phone. The port, that is used for charging is a common USB one, so you won’t have a hard time finding a charger for it if you forget your own at home. When it comes to audio, it has a bottom-facing speaker and 3-microphones with noise cancellation that assures good sound quality while using it for talking. One of the good things about this phone is that it supports a 3.5mm jack, and it’s located on the bottom lid, which is the best place for such a connection port, and you surely won’t find it’s presence disturbing while operating on the device.

In my opinion, the camera is one of the best features of this gadget. It features a 16MP front one, and a 20MP main, both with Sony IMX sensors. It has a dual LED flash, so it’ll surely perform well at taking photos at dark spaces or night time. Modes for portrait, pro mode, panorama, HDR, HQ, dynamic denoise, clear image, RAW image are all included as features and set-ups for the main camera, so you can quickly use the presets and shortcuts for the best shot in each and every moment.
