Star Wars: The Last Jedi is due to reach cinemas in less than two weeks, and that means many many merchandise tie-ins before then. This time it's a OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition phone, which will debut in India on December 14th, one day before the local film debut. The phone is decorated with the Star Wars logo on the back, and the side button is now a scarlet red. There also seems to be a Star Wars theme on the device as well, with the promotional picture showing a First Order stormtrooper wallpaper. We gave the regular OnePlus 5T an 8 out of 10 in our review.

The video promo for the phone shows Kylo Ren picking up his light saber which dissolves into the new Star Wars phone, implying it can cut through Jedi flesh like an energy sword. The ad also says it’s “strong enough to rule the galaxy” — so there’s that.

This isn’t the first time there's been a Star Wars phone released ahead of a film. Last year, Japan's SoftBank unveiled two Sharp phones with light and dark-side designs for the release of Rogue One.

If you're lucky enough to be in India on December 14th, OnePlus is hosting a launch party for the phones in Mumbai, with tickets available for purchase from December 7th. There’s no word yet on the price or if this Star Wars phone will be available in other countries.
