The commemorative KFC Huawei 7 Plus is in the fast-food chain’s signature bright red corporate colour and bears a logo of Colonel Sanders.

As added incentive, the smartphone comes pre-installed with plenty of freebies such as the KFC China app that is preloaded with 100,000 “K dollars” (virtual credits).

Users are also given access to K-music — KFC’s new jukebox function, also available on the KFC app.

A total of 5,000 units of the limited-edition phone will be released, KFC said on Weibo.

The phones cost 1,099 yuan (RM961) each and are available from KFC’s Tmall store from today.
