Now there's a KFC-branded Huawei smartphone

Now there's a KFC-branded Huawei smartphone

It may seem a bit odd that Huawei would put out a KFC-branded phone at all, but especially in China, given that KFC is a USA brand.

KFC opened its first restaurant in the country in Qianmen just a few minutes walk from Tiananmen Square in Beijing in November 1987, reports CNBC.

Every so often, smartphone makers release special editions of their flagship handsets, whether to try to capture a piece of the popularity of a person or major trend or to commemorate a major event. We guessed that it may be the Huawei Honor 7 Plus, but the phone depicted in the ad seems to be a different device entirely.

In its latest PR stunt, the fried chicken chain has launched a specialty website, KFC Limited, where you can buy a bunch of weird crap nobody needs, like socks with drumsticks on them, or an overly sexy Colonel Sanders pillow.

KFC just launched an online retail destination for fans to deck themselves - and their homes - in "finger lickin' good" apparel and decor.

Shenzhen telecommunications company Huawei was also founded in 1987.

It also comes preinstalled with a KFC-branded music app, which allows you to create and share playlists at any KFC restaurant located in China.

Specs and price are unclear at the moment, and the phone doesn't appear to directly match any Huawei phone we know. It will be available from Alibaba's TMall in China and will sport a 5in display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (with a microSD card slot), a fingerprint scanner, a 3020mAh battery and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 425 processor.
