OnePlus 5T Kobe Bryant Edition

The OnePlus 5T Kobe Bryant Edition has surfaced soon after the basketball star’s number 8 and 24 Lakers jerseys were retired yesterday. OnePlus seems to be launching the new edition to honour the retired basketball star. Just like the Star Wars edition, the Kobe Bryant edition of the OnePlus 5T (review) is also expected to come with a special wallpaper, a different colour scheme and a special logo at the rear.

It’s worth mentioning that the OnePlus One is also in the leaked image, which seems odd at the moment. There’s no way to confirm the authenticity of this poster, so we advise you to take this with a pinch of salt for now.

As for the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition, the phone was launched in India for Rs 38,999 in a single 8GB RAM edition. The phone gets a new paint job with a Star Wars logo at the rear, and a bright red alert slider. The handset is also loaded with 10 Star Wars wallpapers and a special Star Wars theme.
