Pablo Escobar’s brother launches an “unbreakable” foldable smartphone

Foldables are generally considered to be the next big thing in the smartphone market. In hopes of grabbing a piece of this growing pie, Pablo Escobar’s brother is entering the segment with the Escobar Fold 1. 

Roberto Escobar is no stranger to weird products and bold statements. After having launched a flamethrower earlier this year which apparently inspired Elon Musk, his sights are now set on the foldable smartphone market. And it isn’t supposed to be a product that was created out of a whim and has some serious intention behind it, as indicated by this statement he shared with Digital Trends

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.

The Escobar Fold 1 is one of the first foldable smartphones in the world, and at a starting price of just $349 (~Rs 25,000), it is by far the cheapest one. For the money, you get a 7.8-inch flexible AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1444 that folds outwards in half. Roberto adds that the panel is made of “a special type of plastic” which is unbreakable and “tougher than the Samsung Galaxy Fold.”
