KFC knows what touches your heart. The taste, the aroma, the serving size and the apps. The apps? Yes, KFC has just launched its first smartphone. No one knew what KFC was cooking (pun intended) until today when it launched its first Android smartphone. KFC phone is an Android smartphone which will have all the features you hope for and more.
KFC, the biggest fried chicken fast-food chain, has partnered up with Huawei, the third largest phone maker in the world to make its new Android smartphone. The phone will be limited edition and only a limited number of units of it will be sold. The phone has been launched to commemorate its 30 years in China.
The phone comes in KFC’s trademark red color. An iconic picture of colonel Sanders can be found on the back. The KFC phone carries mid-range smartphone specs though. The screen is a 5.5 inch panel, and the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 425 processor. It comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which is expandable to 128GB. The phone has a very reasonable 3,020mAh battery. On the back of the phone you will find a fingerprint scanner.
KFC phone comes with a pre-installed KFC music app which lets you share your playlists whenever you are at a KFC restaurant. In addition to all this, the phone comes with 100,000 K-dollars which is the chain’s digital currency.
We feel that KFC is trying to test waters of the tech industry. Certainly digital currency is the next big thing for huge firms and KFC is looking to tap into that through such promotions. China has become a big market for international food chains but this is the first time that such a product is launched by a food chain. We all heard of Pepsi phone earlier but there is no news on that for now.
KFC is limiting the KFC phone to only 5,000 units. Let us know in the comments section if you would like a KFC limited edition phone for yourself.
