If this title is meaningless to you, do not worry that we will explain it better. Roberto de Jesus, brother of the famous drug trafficker Pablo Escobar, recently launched a folding smartphone called Escobar Fold 1. The device is well inspired by another smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Fold and has a rather 'flamboyant' design by today's market standards. Anyway, Roberto told the site Digital trends that the launch of Escobar Fold 1 aims to hit Apple.
Not that he wants his smartphone to compete with the iPhone, but to show Cupertino's company that the value charged for his devices is abusive and criminal. The Escobar Fold 1 costs $ 350 and according to the manufacturer, if it can sell its product at this price, so should Apple.
"They are scammers, and now we are preparing a class 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 suing them and returning money to the people they deserve, I wanted to show them that my product is much better "- Roberto de Jesus, brother of Pablo Escobar.
He will file a $ 30 billion class action lawsuit in California courts on January 6, 2020, for the crime of "illegal profit accumulation." He would have already spent $ 1 million on lawyers alone to file the lawsuit.
As for the device, it comes with Android 9, Snapdragon 8150 with Adreno 640 GPU, models of 6 and 8 GB of RAM, 128 and 512 GB of storage and AMOLED Full HD screen. The camera set comes with 2 16 and 20 MP lenses and the battery is 4000 mAh. According to Escobar, the screen is "unbreakable" because it is made of a "special plastic" and not glass, maintaining a "great resolution".
The first batch of the product will have 100 thousand units. The 6 GB / 128 GB version costs $ 350 and the 8 GB / 512 GB version sells for $ 500 only through the company's website. Escobar Inc.
