OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition won't be "available everywhere"


Over the weekend, OnePlus showcased a new edition of its 5T flagship smartphone - the OnePlus 5T Star Wars, seen in the video above. Designed in collaboration with Lucasfilm (owned by Disney), this is an official Star Wars phone, featuring the franchise's famous logo on the back, and Star Wars-themed software.



 



The OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition will be released in India in mid-December, but what about other countries? Well, we've contacted OnePlus to specifically ask about the smartphone's availability in the US and Europe. The company replied with a rather vague statement:



 





 



That's all OnePlus can say for now. Perhaps the company simply doesn't know (yet) if it wants to launch the 5T Star Wars Edition in the US and Europe. Or maybe they don't have the green light from Lucasfilm/Disney to do this. In any case, if you were hoping to buy this special OnePlus 5T outside of India at some point, chances are that you won't be able to. Bummer.

Wow, and I thought they were being dicks for announcing the “lava red” Oneplus 5T around national aids day but not donating anything to the charity. Same with the red Oneplus 3T.

"Or maybe they don't have the green light from Disney to do this" Probably not, as i understand it Disney bought the rights to the films etc but Lucas kept the rights to all merchandise.
