Roberto de Jesus Escobar Gaviria, the brother of "Narcos" fame drug lord, Pablo Escobar recently launched a new foldable smartphone- the Escobar Fold 1. Pablo Escobar was shot and killed in December 2, while Roberto surrendered to the police in 1992 and spent 10 years in prison.
The ESCOBAR Fold 1, as it is named, sports a 7.8-inch flexible AMOLED display with FHD+ (1920 x 1444 Pixels) resolution.
It also holds two SIM cards, has free shipping, and is unlocked to work on "all networks in USA and Worldwide".
Showcased in an intriguing, and worthy of an eyebrow-raise, manner on the website, the phone is displayed in amongst scantily-clad women.
The smartphone is called Escobar Fold 1 and is actually a variant of the Royole FlexPai, but with some gold elements.
Roberto Escobar told digitaltrends.com that the company uses "a special type of plastic" that is very hard to break.
Perhaps owning the smartphone would add a sense of excitement given Escobar's family ties. TechRadar will be on the ground at the event, and we'll also be reporting on all the new rumors around the device, so stay tuned for all you need to know.
'This is now that you just're going to factor in, thanks for the Escobar Fold 1'. But no, Escobar is, in fact, looking to beat down Apple. "I have told many people that I would beat Apple and I will". I slash the networks and retailers, to promote to potentialities telephones that can fold for below $349, telephones which in stores cost thousands of bucks by Samsung and others.
In a conversation withDigital Trends, Escobar said he hopes to beat Apple with this device.
"He has also revealed plans to sue Apple next month, and the entrepreneur says his lawyers are preparing a "$30bn class-action lawsuit for being "scammers" and "cheating the people and selling worthless phones".
The handset's launch has come with a catalogue of surprises beyond the fact it's been designed and marketed by Pablo Escobar's brother.
