If Apple can create an iPhone, so can KFC! Huawei and KFC team up to create a “finger-lickin good” smartphone which is only available in China. This partnership is to honour the 30th anniversary of KFC for selling buckets of chicken in China. This latest special edition KFC-branded Android mobile phone will have the iconic logo of the Colonel on the back.
The first KFC restaurant was opened near to the Tiananmen Square in Beijing back in November 1987. Today, Yum China has over 7,600 restaurants in the country. Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC are the popular food brands under Yum China.
This Huawei KFC edition smartphone is the Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus, a mid-range 5-inch phone. With a 720p screen, this phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a fingerprint sensing unit on the back of it. Beneath the fingerprint sensor is the laser-etched Colonel Sanders logo design which prints “你好 1987”, which means “Hello 1987”. If you need the extra expansion of space, you can add a microSD card and increase the storage space up to 128GB. Sweet!
Powered with a battery capacity of 3020mAh, the rear camera is 13 megapixel and the front camera is 5 megapixels. The smartphone runs on Android Nougat v7.0 with the EMUI 5.1 skin.
This Huawei KFC edition smartphone is pre-installed with the KFC-branded music app, which allows creating and sharing of the playlist at a KFC restaurant.
Priced at 1,099 yuan ($222 SGD) each, this red edition smartphone will be on sale at Tmall store from July 13. Made exclusively in China, there will be only 5,000 units. How I wish Huawei could send me a unit to try!
