Check out this cool Easter Egg from the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition

The OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition is one of the coolest limited edition smartphones as is, but it just got even better! Turns out that, aside from the special branding on the back and the nice wallpapers, the phone—or should we say the package—also includes a cool Easter Egg that fans of the intergalactic soap opera saga will surely appreciate.

Discovered by Android Central, the Easter Egg involves uncovering a hidden message, searching for a planet from the Star Wars universe in the weather app, and a hologram of everyone's favorite beeping robot, R2-D2. But more on that in a second.

In order to see the cool secret for yourself, you'll need to check the box that the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition comes in. There should be a nice greeting card inside that holds a hidden clue. If you take every first letter of every line from the card, you'll uncover the hidden message which reads, "Scribble with pencil". Scribbling over the blank space at the bottom of the card reveals yet another message, "Find the secret compartment and check the weather forecast on Ahch-To."


The secret compartment is actually in the box itself, as it has a false bottom containing a prism and instructions on how to assemble and use it. Put the prism together, fire up the OnePlus weather app, and look up Ahch-To – an Outer Rim planet from the Star Wars universe. Upon doing so, you will see markings on your screen, indicating where to place the prism. Positioning it in the right way, will display a hologram image of R2-D2, accompanied by a hidden message from a galaxy far, far away.
