If you’re a fan of the Colonel’s chicken then perhaps you’ll be interested in the latest product that the company has slapped its name on. KFC has teamed up with Huawei to release a limited edition smartphone. This device is meant to commemorate 30 years since KFC’s first opening in the People’s Republic of China. The device doesn’t appear to have a name but the Colonel’s face is on there.

This unnamed KFC-Huawei love child has a Snapdragon 425 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It also features a 3,020mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner. The body appears to be made out of metal and the display measures in at 5 inches.

The paint job is signature KFC red with an embossed Colonel Sanders on the back. His face has actually been put on there through laser back carving, or that’s what KFC has said in its official press release.

The device also comes pre-installed for something called the “Kentucky Super APP,” and it’s not entirely clear what purpose this app serves. It goes without saying that it’s meant for users in China.

It even has a KFC-branded music app onboard which allows users to create and share playlists at a KFC restaurant. Since this is a limited edition device, it will be sold in limited numbers. KFC and Huawei are only going to sell 5,000 units of this smartphone for 1,099 yuan or $162.
