Star Wars themed Android phones make debut in Japan
Star Wars galaxy has come a long way since it was first introduced to us mortals. Back then in the galaxy far, far away there were no phones, but cometh the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story they could be a sight. Sharp is stepping up to please the Star Wars fraternity with two “Dark Side” and “Light Side” smartphones for Japanese Telecom giant SoftBank.
The duo of Star Wars themed phones come with live wallpapers and themes that morph the phones to look like cockpits of the X-Wing or the Tie fighter, and have Imperial and Rebel icons embellished on the back of each smartphone. Additionally, the phones come with Star Wars themed apps, emoji, alarm clock, calculator and yes, the ringtones.
If you live outside the purview of SoftBank, there isn’t much for you here, but if you’re and user in Japan the phones have it all to keep you entertained. The phones feature 5.3-inch full-HD screen, Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable with MicroSD card).
