KFC Announces Huawei-Made Phone To Mark 30 Years in China

KFC Announces Huawei-Made Phone To Mark 30 Years in China

Naturally, the key factor here is the whole "KFC phone" thing.

"KFC and Colonel Sanders have been American pop culture icons for more than 70 years", says Steve Kelly, director of media and digital in the US for KFC.

Everything on KFC Ltd.is produced in limited-edition quantities. The feature will be exclusive to Huawei devices until the end of the month. We do not yet know whether the new phone will be one already launched by Huawei, or whether the hardware will be made specifically for this anniversary edition. In addition to how popular the KFC brand is among the Chinese, it was also the first Western fast food chain to open up a location there. The launch is timed to the 30th anniversary of KFC in China.

Not only do the Chinese love KFC's food, but they also love their smartphones, which is probably where the marketing idea for the Huawei KFC phone came from.

KFC Branded Smartphone Coming Soon

There aren't a lot of details available on the phone's specifications, though the YouTube description indicates that it's a customized take on the Huawei 7 Plus, and according to Kotaku, there will be the option of either 16GB or 32GB storage capacity. The KFC smartphone is the red model of the Enjoy 7 with the Colonel's face and the year it entered China engraved on it.

The phone is equipped with a 5-inch LCD display panel with a resolution of 1,280 by 720 pixels.

The product comes bundled with a KFC app which includes an exclusive feature in China called K-music that gives users access to a playlist of curate music when inside a KFC restaurant.

So, if you're a die-hard KFC fan in China, maybe this is the phone for you.
