KFC Has Its Own Phone Now
KFC has partnered with Huawei Technologies to release a new smartphone, for real
The phone is a special edition of Huawei's Enjoy 7 Plus and has both the Huawei and KFC logos on it.
The phone is matte red with an engraving of good ol’ Colonel Sanders on the back
It has a 5.5-inch screen, a 13-megapixel rear camera and comes with 3GB of RAM. It also has 32GB of storage that can be expanded up to 128GB with a microSD card. The phone also comes with a fingerprint scanner and a 3,020mAh battery.
The phone also comes with a music app called K-Music
The app has a jukebox function that allows users to pick music in KFC restaurants in China. Over 4000 outlets in the country support the app.
The phone is limited edition, priced under RM700
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.
