Huawei's KFC-Branded Phone Looks Finger Lickin' Awful

KFC and Huawei issued a joint smartphone

Just kidding, the official reason is actually that Huawei and KFC both want to celebrate 30 years of existence in China.

While the items online now are all limited edition, the brand also noted that they're planning further product rollouts and collaborations in the future.

"Both brands have witnessed the rise of China in these 30 years, and both embody the spirit of the times". In that year, KFC opened its first Chinese location in Tiananmen Square, and Huawei started in Shenzhen Industrial Park, Campaign Asia reports.

Steven Li, senior vice president of KFC marketing with Yum China said.

Did you fall in love with Colonel Sanders after reading the KFC romance novella Tender Wings of Desire? No? Huawei is releasing a Kentucky Fried Chicken smartphone to the Chinese market.

The device has a five inch display with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. The back of the phone features a fingerprint sensor, and an image of Colonel Sanders and the KFC logo has been laser-etched into the back.

As an added bonus, the phone will come preinstalled with the KFC app, along with 'K-music, ' a new jukebox feature that allows customers to personally select the tunes that play while eating in any KFC restaurant throughout the country.

Specs and price are unclear at the moment, and the phone doesn't appear to directly match any Huawei phone we know.

The device itself is labeled as Huawei's "SLA-AL00" model and is powered by a Snapdragon 425, along with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of onboard storage that can be expanded with up to a 128GB microSD card.
