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.
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.

I don't know why you think that a phone that smells like bacon is bad...
Lol this just a Samsung A11 probably with a special launcher for that "Assistant". The mock up on the website is hiding the punch hole.
