Next time you're in China, ask for a phone at the KFC drive-thru.

The fast food chain has partnered with Huawei to release a limited-edition smartphone to celebrate 30 years since opening in China. Called the KFC edition Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus, it features a 5.5-inch screen, Snapdragon 425 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD card support, 3,020mAh battery, fingerprint scanner, and an image of Colonel Sanders on the back of the device.

We attempted to Google Translate KFC's announcement on Weibo, but it’s written in Chinese, and the translation made no sense. From what we can tell, however, the phone comes with a KFC music app so you can create and share playlists when at one of KFC’s 4,000 restaurants throughout China. There also appears to be some KFC-themed software and a Colonel Sanders background image.

If you're interested in this special device, Tmall, a retailer in China, will begin selling the KFC Huawei 7 Plus from 13 July for the equivalent of $160 (£125). Huawei and KFC will only release 5,000 of these devices, though, so you shouldn’t expect it to come to the US or UK. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
