If you love fried chicken, the KFC smartphone is for you
Die-hard chicken fans, this is the phone for you.
KFC and Chinese smartphone giant Huawei have released a new smartphone to mark the fast food chain’s 30-year presence in China.
The limited edition KFC Huawei 7 Plus comes in a bright red casing, with both Colonel Sanders and the Huawei logo imprinted on its back.
The phone will be available for $161 on Tmall, China’s equivalent of Amazon, from Thursday.
It has some pretty decent specs for the price you’re paying at least. It comes with a fingerprint scanner, a 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM and can support a 128GB Micro SD card.
The phone, comes pre-installed with the KFC app, and also comes with K-Music an app that lets you pick the songs you want to hear on the speakers at one of KFC’s 4,000 restaurants in China. It’s basically a jukebox in the digital age.
“Between KFC and Huawei…both brands have witnessed the rise of China in these 30 years. Our collaboration is a homage to the era,” Steven Li, senior vice president of KFC marketing told Campaign Asia-Pacific.
But this isn’t the first innovative project KFC’s adopted.
Last year, it opened a restaurant in Shanghai staffed entirely by robots.

Earlier last week, KFC also opened a new “healthy” restaurant in Hangzhou called K Pro, which serves up dishes like fresh juice and salads.
We’re not quite sure how much you’d have to like KFC to get this phone, but there’s no better way to wear your fried chicken on your sleeve.
