Japanese Brand Softbank to Release Star Wars Phones for Rogue One
Japanese phone company Softbank will be joining the fun of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by releasing two exclusive Star Wars smartphones featuring great imagery from the Star Wars mythos.
The two phones from Softbank will be made from Sharp and will feature the following specs:
5.3-inch 1080p IGZO display
Snapdragon 820 processor
3GB of RAM
32GB of storage (plus microSD slot)
7.6mm thick, 155g
So now that we’re done with the technical specs, lets check what these Japan exclusive smartphones have in store for Star Wars fans. These include:
Live wallpapers that make the phone look like an X-Wing or TIE fighter cockpit
Excessive Android 6.0 skin in both light and dark side themes
Five exclusive metal figurines taken from Rogue One
A Star Wars Movie Player app that lets you watch The Force Awakens until the year 2020
Pre-loaded Star Wars: Force Collection card game with a code for a gold card pack ticket
Star Wars-themed alarm clock app (yes)
Star Wars emoji (of course)
Star Wars ringtones (definitely)
If it isnt obvious enough its pretty clear that these Star Wars smartphones do not feature the characters from this year’s Rogue One movie directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Ben Mendelsohn.
The Sharp Star Wars smartphones will be available in Softbank stores in Japan starting December 2 and will be running on Android.
