KFC has launched a cluckin' smartphone - and it's really cheap

KFC Branded Smartphone Coming Soon

"Our collaboration is a tribute to the era", said senior Vice President, marketing KFC Steven Lee (Steven Li).

On the backside, we have the famous logo with Colonel Sanders' face and the year when the American company reached the Land of the Great Wall - 1987. Huawei really is teaming up with US -based KFC on a special edition of its Enjoy 7 Plus created to mark the fast food chain's 30 anniversary in China.

According to Ad Age, the phone's features include, fittingly, a pre-installed KFC delivery app. 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.

KFC is celebrating its 30th anniversary in China, and that means one thing: Limited edition promotional products. However, the fast food chain is hugely popular in China, and it's the largest restaurant chain in the country thousands of locations.

The Touch ID sensor might delay iPhone 8 OLED production even further, assuming Apple still plans to include it into the screen . Whatever shape the iPhone 8 launches in you shouldn't have too long to wait for it, with a September or October launch likely.

KFC opened its first store at Tiananmen Square while Huawei began the same year at an industrial park in Shenzhen with just 14 employees.

Everybody loves KFC (well nearly everybody). There's a 5-inch display, but with a rather disappointing 1280x720 resolution. As a result, it should come as no surprise that the Huawei KFC phone is red.

The "KFC Phone" is a special version of Huawei's Chang Enjoy 7 smartphone limited to just 5,000 retail units, and features more than a few KFC-styled changes.

It's called the "KFC Huawei 7 Plus", and is powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage. Loaded onto the phone are a number of bonuses including 100,000 "K dollars" - virtual credits for the KFC app in China - and access to KFC's new jukebox function, K-Music.
