If this phone works as it is supposed to, it can knock out Samsung and Motorola's Foldable phones.

Promotional stills of the Escobar Fold 1 feature Pablo's grinning mugshot as a default background, and an advert for the phone features scantily dressed models in heels. And now Roberto Escobar, brother of Pablo Escobar, is giving Samsung a competition with its new foldable smartphone, called the Escobar Fold 1. The device would be available for sale via Escobar's website. Prices start at $349.00 and the company says it will ship anywhere in the world.

Escobar told Digital Trends Wednesday that he will file a $30 billion class-action lawsuit on January 6, 2020 in California against Apple for accumulating illegal profits.

The smartphone is "always ready to fold" and it will be easy to turn it into a tablet, Escobar Inc., the company now run by Roberto, says in a description on its website.

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. "Apple Boy Steve once looked into space".

Though most would grasp this foldable phone may well perchance perchance be a contender for the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but Escobar has his sights set apart on Apple.

Escobar "slash the networks and retailers" in picture to promote the smartphone at a low designate with a aim to entice iOS users and "beat Apple" -which he stated is scamming potentialities. "It can't be broken" because the screen is made of "a special kind of plastic". The device has all the flagship-grade components, and the body is made out of plastic, yes the body is made out of plastic which makes the phone unbreakable. The phone also supports expandable storage up to 256GB. We are not. Also, the cover that comes with all phones has a thin layer of metal that blocks RFID and other communications. He further added, "They are cheating the people and selling worthless phones to consumers, overpriced".

The Escobar Fold 1 comes in two sizes, 128GB and 512GB, and sells for $349 and $499, respectively.
