There’s smartphones, then there’s…KFC smartphones?

Just how lit is the smartphone market right now? So much so that KFC won’t let Pepsi have all the fun. That’s right: KFC’s giving fans a chance to commemorate their favorite fast food chicken with a company-branded cell phone.

KFC has partnered with Huawei to celebrate 30 years of operation in China by releasing the KFC Huawei 7 Plus. The limited edition red phone features an engraved KFC logo on the back, along with KFC China’s inaugural year, 1987.

Phone specs
  • 5.5-inch screen
  • Snapdragon 425 processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB storage
  • MicroSD storage expansion
  • 3,020mAh battery
  • Fingerprint scanner

To top it off, it even comes with 100,000 K-dollars to spend at the restaurant and a KFC K-music app that allows customers to choose music to play when visiting a KFC. I’m serious. Check out the promo video:

The device went on sale July 13th in China, but luckily enough for fans, the limited 5,000-phone release didn’t sell like hot cakes, so there’s still a chance to get one. And with the cost is only 1,099 yuan ($162 USD), what’s not to like? You could always hide your deep, dark, finger lickin’ secret with a case or cover.
