Pablo Escobar’s brother made a folding smartphone and he says it’s unbreakable

Earlier this year, Pablo Escobar’s brother Roberto released his own flamethrower, a device he said inspired Elon Musk’s viral Not a Flamethrower. Now, the brother of the infamous drug lord is taking on Samsung with a new foldable smartphone called the “Escobar Fold 1.”

Similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, the Escobar Fold 1 features a flexible screen that allows users to fold it into a tablet. While it may seem that Escobar has Samsung in its crosshairs, Roberto Escobar tells us that it’s Apple he’s actually after.

“I have told many people that I would beat Apple and I will. I cut the networks and retailers, to sell to customers phones that can fold for only $349, phones which in stores cost thousands of dollars by Samsung and others. This is my goal, to beat Apple, and by doing it myself like I always have,” Escobar told Digital Trends.
Back to that foldable smartphone, the Escobar Fold 1 comes running Android 9.0 and has an Octa-Core 2.8Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 CPU, dual cameras at 16 and 20 megapixels, and a 7.8-inch AMOLED FHD+ screen when folded. The phone is capable of holding two SIM cards, and ships unlocked, so it can be used on your carrier of choice. Here is a video of some women wearing lingerie holding the phone:
