KFC has partnered with Huawei to release a smartphone to commemorate 30 years since it opened its first "restaurant" in China, so if you've always dreamt of owning a phone with a picture of Colonel Sanders carved into its rear, you'll soon be able to tick it off your bucket list.

If you've ever caught yourself daydreaming about eating some tender, juicy chicken wings while idly staring at your phone, Huawei and KFC have teamed up to give you. something.

IF YOU LIKE FRIED CHICKEN as much as you like cheap Chinese smartphones, today if your lucky day. An accompanying video on KFC's Weibo account highlighted how far both brands had come since their humble beginnings when they first opened for business in 1987.

Founded stateside way back in 1930 as the Sanders Court & Café, then franchised in 1952, what eventually became a global empire expanded to the world's most populous country in November 1987 with just one Beijing outlet.

This unnamed KFC-Huawei love child has a Snapdragon 425 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
