Sharp unveils Star Wars-themed phone for SoftBank

Verizon typically has dibs on Star Wars-themed smartphones – they even licensed the word “Droid” from George Lucas. Now Sharp is stepping into their territory with a phone for SoftBank.

The phone comes in two versions – Light side and Dark side, naturally, and features live wallpapers and themes that turn its screen into the cockpit of an X-Wing or a Tie fighter respectively. Star Wars-themed ringtones, emoji and an alarm clock are also included.

You also get to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens for free. We’re not sure but you may have to bring your own lightsaber, though.

As for the Android smartphone qualities of the handset, it features a 5.3” IGZO display (1080p resolution), a Snapdragon 820 chipset with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage (plus a microSD slot) and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Like so many of Sharp’s phones, this one is waterproof (IP58).

It has a 22.6MP main camera and a 5MP selfie cam, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi ac connectivity and a 3,000mAh battery.
