(YUM CHINA/CNN) - Kentucky Fried Chicken is celebrating 30 years in china by releasing a line of exclusive smartphones.

Fortune magazine reports the fast-food giant has teamed up with a Chinese electronics maker to release a limited-edition of Android phones.

The new phones will be red, with the indelible image of KFC's Colonel Sanders on the back.

The promotion is to be in honor of the franchise's 1987 debut in China, where KFC is now the largest restaurant chain.

But before you run down to your local KFC to try and procure your chicken and phone, take note: the new gadgets will only be released in China.
