Although OnePlus is best known for their incredibly cheap smartphone, the OnePlus One, they still see themselves as a technology company, not just a phone manufacturer. With that in mind, the company has released a few teaser images about an upcoming device that’s not a smartphone, not a tablet, and not a smartwatch.

Star Wars: Galactic Defense will be coming to Android later this year, combining the Star Wars prequels with classic tower defense gameplay. The game looks entertaining enough, although it’s probably not going to be a revolutionary genre-bending game. The developer has opened early registration for gameplay information and will be giving away some free in-game items for signing up.
