Forget the iPhone 13 or Pixel 6, it's all about the Wendy's Phone

Hopefully, it doesn't smell like bacon.

What you need to know

  • Wendy's has its own smartphone, and it's giving it away in a contest.
  • The smartphone has a 6.4-inch HD+ display and a triple camera setup.
  • The contest is only open to Canadian residents.

Following the iPhone 13 launch and leading up to the long-awaited Pixel 6, a new smartphone plans to take the world by storm, and it's made by the one and only Wendy's.

That's right; Wendy's has its own smartphone, the appropriately named "Wendy's Phone."

As part of a contest, Wendy's is giving away this device to 20 lucky contestants between September 28 and October 17. To enter, you have to download the Wendy's app, like and screenshot your favorite order, and post it online with "#WendysPhone" and "#Contest" included in the tweet.

The smartphone appears to be a custom Android device with a 6.4-inch HD+ display, a triple camera setup, and a rear fingerprint sensor. Wendy's was mum on any additional details of the device, but the cameras apparently have "more megapixels than the Baconator has bacon."

Wendy's wasn't immediately available to provide us with any specs when we reached out, but it sounds like it falls roughly in the same league as some of the best budget Android phones. It also appears to be unlocked, so you can just stick any active SIM into it.

One of the more interesting features is the addition of a custom voice assistant which appears to answer to "Hey Wendy" and sounds just as snarky as the fast-food joint's Twitter account. However, it's unclear what Wendy's is using for its assistant.

Just say "Hey, Wendy" and you can set an alarm, get directions, even ask Wendy to tell you a joke. And if she feels like it, she might even do it!

If you're hoping to be one of the 20 to snag this hot commodity, well you'd better be in Canada because that's where the contest is happening. Meanwhile, you can find out more about the contest and the phone at Wendy's website.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
