KFC will soon celebrate 30 years of existence in China, and thought this might be a great moment to release a special anniversary-edition product. The fast food franchise collaborated with Huawei to create a smartphone which will be available strictly in the country, and in quite limited quantities. Even so, the idea of a KFC device sounds like a lot of fun.
A KFC-red smartphone
The smartphone will come in KFC’s iconic red color, and will bear icons of both brands. The companies released a promo video, presenting the upcoming device created for all Chinese chicken lovers. This video was able to clarify some debates on the name the headset is going to bear.
Initially, some sources said it would be called Huawei 7 Plus. However, the video shows how the phone resembles the new Huawei Enjoy 7. Keep in mind that this is different from Enjoy 7 Plus, which you might know under the name Y7 Prime.
A KFC smartphone must have made you curious. Unfortunately, there are not many details on the phone’s specifications. However, what we can guarantee is the fact that it won’t be much different from Enjoy 7.
Clever marketing stunt from KFC
This device is powered by Snapdragon 425, has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, but also has a premium version with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. The KFC edition will probably feature all the exclusive specs of the premium version.
KFC’s Chinese 30-year anniversary corresponds with Huawei’s 30-year anniversary, so the mobile company took advantage of this opportunity to manufacture a different phone. The KFC smartphones have already gone on sale for 1,099 yuan ($162). This launch is probably a publicity stunt from the fast food franchise, as the company will probably not get much financial benefit from the sales.
