It goes on sale in China today for 1099 yuan (RM695.44).

The collaboration was done to commemorate the 30th anniversary of KFC and Huawei in China

KFC opened its first Chinese restaurant in November 1987 in Beijing. It was also one of the first western restaurants to have an outlet in the country.

Meanwhile, Huawei had a humble beginning in Shenzhen starting its company with only 14 employees.

"Both brands have witnessed the rise of China in these 30 years, and both embody the spirit of the times. Our collaboration is a homage to the era," Steven Li, senior vice president of KFC marketing, says.
