KFC China markets Colonel Sanders smartphone

There's A KFC-Branded Phone Now If You're Passionate About Fried Chicken

KFC Smartphone Looks Finger-Lickin' Good

The limited edition phone commemorates the 30 year anniversary of the chain's opening in China, which is better than a janky fridge magnet, I guess.

Huawei and KFC will only release 5,000 of these devices and they'll be available for 1,099 yuan ($162). It has a 5.5-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 435 SoC, a 12MP camera, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

According to Forbes, the phone is a version of the Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus, which is a mid-range phone that's only available in limited markets. The phone has a 3,020mAh battery and features a fingerprint scanner.

The announcement was made via KFC's Weibo page in Chinese, but The Verge was kind enough to run it through Google Translate for excellent results. You shouldn't expect the KFC phone to come to the US, Australia or United Kingdom anytime soon though, this is nearly certainly a China exclusive only.

There's also an app called K-Music, which according to the marketing material will allow you to pick songs you want to hear when you're in one of KFC's 4,000 restaurants throughout China. It also comes with 100,000 virtual currency "K dollars". Back in June 2016, KFC India launched a tech-savvy Watt a Box that came with an inbuilt power bank and cables for charging your smartphone while you ate. Vote below and let us know!
