Wendy’s Canada announced on Monday the launch of the ‘Wendy’s Phone’, a customized Android phone to celebrate the launch of the revamped fast-food chain’s mobile app.

The Wendy’s Phone has a branded OS skin, includes a “Hey Wendy” digital assistant, a 6.4-inch HD screen and built-in GPS navigation. The company is giving away 20 of these Wendy’s Phone devices in a Twitter contest.

The phone appears to be a customized Samsung Galaxy A11 smartphone (update: confirmed by Wendy’s). Wendy’s says the device’s “ample battery life allows you to watch Wendy’s ads, order Wendy’s and watch videos while eating Wendy’s.”

“We’ve developed the Wendy’s phone for our Canadian fans, and it supplements our new and improved mobile app, which now allows for mobile payment and exclusive offers for the freshest food in town,” says Lisa Deletroz, Senior Director, Marketing, Wendy’s Canada, in an issued statement to iPhone in Canada.

“Canadians can win their very own Wendy’s phone for a limited time, ensuring they watch their favourite shows, listen to their beloved playlists and order a Frosty and the very best burgers made with 100% Canadian fresh never frozen beef with the hottest device on the market. All they need is the Wendy’s app,” added Deletroz.

Those looking to win the phone need to download the new Wendy’s iOS and Android app, share a screenshot of the menu item they want and share it on Twitter with the hashtags #WendysPhone and #Contest. There’s even a custom Twitter ‘hashflag’ for the #WendysPhone.

The Wendy’s Phone contest runs from September 27, 2021, at 8:00:00 a.m. Eastern Time to Oct 17, 2021, at 8:00:00 p.m. ET.
