The new variant was announced a few weeks ago and is already available at the same price as the regular OnePlus 5T in a 128GB variant. However, if you have already bought the regular variant, the chances are less that you will switch. While you can imitate the hardware design, you can still enable OnePlus 5T Star Wars Themes and Wallpapers pretty easily.
