Default KFC/Huawei smartphone in China



Huawei Announces Hilarious Special Edition KFC Phone In China

Behold, the KFC phone.
Yum China

There have been some interesting special edition smartphones over the years, not all of which were as cool as the superhero-themed Galaxy devices from Samsung or the R2-D2 Droid 2. I mean, there was a horrendously ugly Hello Kitty HTC Butterfly S. The latest special edition phone from Huawei is so weird it manages to be kind of cool. You might even call it "finger-licking good." It's a KFC-branded Android smartphone, released in China to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the chain's existence there.

KFC originated in the U.S., but it's now the largest restaurant chain in China with more than 5,000 locations as of early 2017. In fact, KFC is known as one of the most power foreign brands in the entire country. Put simply, the Chinese people love KFC. It only makes sense that the 30th anniversary (1987 to present) would warrant some sort of celebration, and one of China's biggest smartphone makers stepped up.

I suppose if you manage to get your hands on one it would be something to crow about.
