NEWS: Exclusive Star Wars phone released by Sharp


May the phone be with you.

In the run up to the release of Rogue One, there's a hell of a lot of branded tat out there for you to buy. It seems, however, that Japanese tech company Sharp have upped the ante by bringing out two specially themed smartphones: one for your light side, and one for your dark.

Both phones are essentially the same in terms of specs, but feature highly customised versions of Android on the inside. As well themed wallpapers and buttons, there is also an app that lets you watch The Force Awakens as often as you like, for free, until 1st December 2019. Why?


Anyway, the phone itself is actually pretty impressive: a 1080p 5.3 inch screen, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 22.6 MP main camera. However, just like Anakin Skywalker's tendency toward the dark side, there are a couple of downsides to this phone. Unfortunately it seems only to be available in Japan, and it carries a price tag of around £700. Say what, Padawan?
