The OnePlus 5T announcement is imminent, and, thanks to leaks and a premature unboxing video, we have a pretty good idea of what the new OnePlus flagship will be like. But one particularly savvy individual has sensed a disturbance in the force, and detected a Star-Wars themed secret hidden in the leaked OnePlus 5 Oreo beta build, which hints at a limited edition Star Wars OnePlus 5T.
This rumor started not long ago in this very galaxy, when an XDA-Developers reader noticed a reference to a Star Wars accent color. The “accent_star_wars” string was located after digging through the Launcher, Settings, and SystemUI APKs. Interestingly, the accent color’s hex code is #ff2837, a dark red color that resembles the cloak worn by Rey, the protagonist of Disney’s upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Check out the trailer below so see what we’re talking about:
Clues point to a physical device
XDA did some more digging and discovered even more references to Star Wars within the leaked Oreo build. Apart from the color accent and potential theme, further evidence points towards an actual physical Star Wars themed device in development, thanks to strings of code that read as “DEVICE_CUSTOM_STAR_WARS.”
Mysteriously the details of XDA’s investigation has been pulled from their site, but thanks to 9to5google.com, we have access to a cached version so that you can see for yourself.
Right now, there’s not much else to say about this rumored device, except that Star Wars fans can only hope to hear some details in the OnePlus 5t presentation event later today. Check out the livestream with us to get all the details first.
