Pablo Escobar’s brother, Roberto Escobar, is launching his very own foldable smartphone, and it’s called the Escobar Fold 1. The handset features a a 7.8-inch AMOLED FHD+ screen when folded, an octa-core 2.8Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 chipset, dual cameras (16MP + 20MP) and dual SIM card slots. Just like the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the Escobar Fold 1’s flexible display can be folded out like a tablet.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, this handset allegedly is nearly unbreakable due to the display being made of a special type of plastic instead of glass. Roberto Escobar also claims that the “special security” on the phone will not be open to all governments, while a thin layer of metal blocks RFID and other communications.
The initial Escobar Fold 1 production run is set at 100,00-units, with a 128GB model priced at $349 and a larger 512GB capacity unit at $499.
