If you love limited edition movie tie-in smartphones, OnePlus will be releasing a Star Wars limited edition of its OnePlus 5T.

It’s amazing how we’ve been independent for nearly sixty years, yet we still have so much British pessimism in us.
Going through life alone is never ideal and you’re most likely to enjoy it better when surrounded by friends. LG knows this and wants to metaphorically do the same for its flagship smartphone. Google tried and are still toying around with modular parts through their Project Ara program and there’s even a smartphone case that lets you do the same.
