Huawei’s Special Edition KFC Smartphone For China Is Finger Lickin’ Good
The KFC Edition of the Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus was unveiled by the restaurant chain via its official Weibo page. In addition to the snazzy red finish and a picture of the “Colonel” on the back of the device, the smartphone comes preloaded with a K-Music app what allows you to play music over the speaker system installed in KFC restaurants (we can see this feature becoming annoying very quickly).
Beyond that, the specs for the KFC Edition Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus are straight out of the mid-range smartphone playbook thanks to a 5.5-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, microSD slot, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3,020 mAh battery. Only 5,000 of the smartphones will be produced, if you don’t mind carrying around Colonel Sanders in your pocket all day long.
When it comes to its franchise locations outside of the United States, KFC is no stranger to rather strange promotions. Back in 2015, the restaurant chain introduced limited edition Bluetooth keyboard-equipped food trays that allowed you to type without getting your smartphone display all greasy. A year later, the company was back with a takeout box that doubled as a smartphone charger.
KFC also launched a new facial recognition scanner in conjunction with search giant Baidu to help offer meal suggestions.
