Let’s go for parts: the brother of the deceased (and perhaps one of the best known) Colombian drug trafficker Pablo Escobar, Roberto de Jesus, recently launched a foldable smartphone called Escobar Fold 1. Although the name and design of the device itself refer to the Galaxy Fold (from Samsung), Roberto told the Digital Trends that you want to achieve Apple with the launch.
The story has more to do with the price charged for Apple devices than with (unlikely) competition with gadgets of the Apple. To get an idea, Escobar Fold 1 costs $ 350 – and, according to the manufacturer, if he manages to sell a device at this price, Apple could also.
They [a Apple] they are scammers, and now we are preparing for collective action. They are deceiving people and selling disposable phones to consumers at excessive prices. My lawyers have been ready for a long time, but before I sue them and return money to the people they deserve, I wanted to show them that my product is much better.
Escobar will open, on January 6, 2020, a collective action of $ 30 billion against Apple for allegedly “accumulating illegal profits”. According to the news, he would have already invested $ 1 million in lawyers to file the lawsuit.
The $ 30 billion lawsuit will be brought before the California courts of America. We want Apple to return its illegally earned profits to the people. I will make sure this happens.
Back at Escobar Fold 1, it comes with Android 9.0 and has a Snapdragon 8 chip octa-core 2.8GHz, a 16MP and 20MP dual camera system, and a 7.8 inch AMOLED FHD + screen when unfolded. In addition, Escobar claims that the device’s screen is “unbreakable” because it is made of a “special type of plastic” that, apparently, maintains a great resolution.
Even the device’s commercial scoffs at Apple; in it, a “voice of God” says:
The boy Steve once looked into space. He saw Pablo Escobar with a phone beyond anyone’s imagination.

In another commercial, the brand calls for a cliché: a lot of lingerie models showing the device:
The initial distribution of Escobar Fold 1 will be limited to 100,000 units. The 128GB version costs $ 350, while the 512GB version sells for $ 500 exclusively on the company’s website.
