KFC made a Huawei phone with Colonel Sanders' image all over it

"KFC is releasing the customized Huawei 7 Plus phone to mark its 30 year anniversary in China." reads the video description. That's like a badge of honour if you love fried chicken.

Fans of the fried chicken restaurant can now get their own drumstick-printed socks, a pillow with Colonel Sanders' face on it - and a real, $20,000 meteorite that has been carved into the shape of a chicken sandwich. The company will sell a total of 5,000 units of the limited edition phone, the Weibo post said. Both brands traced its origins in China to the year 1987-KFC opened its first store at Tiananmen Square while Huawei had a rather humble beginning at Shenzhen Industrial Park with just 21,000 RMB in capital and 14 employees.

The phone is somewhat similar to recently released Huawei Enjoy 7.

This week, the brand unveiled KFC Ltd.

The "suck" actually refers to KFC's slogan of "finger-licking good", and the "10 thousand K" is 100,000 K dollars, the restaurant's digital currency, reported The Verge. KFC has collaborated with Huawei to make the phone to celebrate its 30th anniversary in China. Steve Kelly, KFC's USA director of media, talked about KFC and why the company released a clothing line in and Adweek Wednesday.

On the camera front, the Huawei Enjoy 7 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash light and phase detection auto focus and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. Not only is the new device a potential profit point for KFC, but it's also a great way to have a tame pool of interested users who will probably want to know about discounts and similar matter. That's an unanswerable question, much like why one would ever eat KFC.

The device follows a trend of special editions being launched for smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Pirates of the Caribbean Edition, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice Edition, and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Edition.
