Japanese company Unveils Star Wars Smartphone

Nearly three weeks ahead of the next installment of Star Wars series "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", Japanese mobile carrier SoftBank has unveiled a smartphone dedicated to the science fiction film, a media report said on Sunday.

Available in two colors -- Dark (black) and Light (White) side editions -- the device lets you choose your "Force allegiance".

The 7.6 mm thin Star Wars mobile phones are made by electronic products manufacturer Sharp and sport a 5.3-inch, full HD (1080p) display, The Verge reported.

It runs on Android 6.0 and has skin in both light and dark side themes. The device is powered by Snapdragon 820 processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage which can be expanded by a microSD card.

Apart from a 22.6 MP primary camera and 3,000 mAh battery for extended running hours, the device also has "Live wallpapers" that make the phone look like an X-Wing or TIE fighter cockpit, a Star Wars Movie Player app that lets a user watch The Force Awakens until the year 2020 and pre-loaded Star Wars: Force Collection card game.

The phone, which will go on sale from December 2 in Japan, has Star Wars-themed alarm clock app, Star Wars emoji and Star Wars ringtones.
