[Update]: GSM Arena reports it has received confirmation that the phone will exclusively be sold in India to celebrate OnePlus' anniversary in the country.

There have been rumors about OnePlus teaming up with Walt Disney owned Star Wars franchise for a special limited-edition OnePlus 5T in the past, but today, at the ongoing Comic Con event in Bangalore, India, OnePlus officially teased the same.

The special edition OnePlus 5T is expected to carry lots of Star Wars effects built into the software. The company revealed posters of the phone, hinting what the device would look like, but kept details of sale, availability and launch, still under wraps.

OnePlus is holding a special launch event in Mumbai on December 14 to formally show off the special device. Fans who wish to attend the event can purchase the tickets for INR 999 starting December 7, 10:00AM IST on Paytm. The volume button on the left and the power button on the right are painted black, but the alert slider is coated red. For example, do you remember the OnePlus 3T Colette Edition which was made available only in France?

Worringly, Davis was unable to put any weight on his leg, and had to be taken to the locker room in a wheelchair. As it turns out, the injury will hold him out for longer than just part of Friday's game.

After launching just the black version of the OnePlus 5T, the company launched a lava red version of the phone in China last week. There appears to be limited edition wallpaper on the device - and if past Star Wars phones are any indication, there will be other exclusive content on the phone to further the theme. Due to the popularity of the Midnight Black color, the same was released as a standard edition with the OnePlus 5. OnePlus 5T's price in India is Rs 32,999 for the base 6GB RAM variant, while the top-end 8GB RAM model costs Rs 37,999.

In terms of specifications, the OnePlus 5T features a 6.0-inch FHD+ Optic AMOLED display panel with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1,080 x 2,160 resolution updating the screen to match the near bezel-less design that has gripped the smartphone industry in 2017.

The OnePlus 5T also helped the company break its own record for launch day sales.
