Escobar Inc. has released several promotional videos dedicated to their latest product, the foldable smartphone, the Fold 1. This surprised and puzzled experts in the industry. The fact is that Roberto Escobar, better known at the time of his brother Pablo's drug empire under the name "Billy Carter", although he has been engaged in legal business for a long time, has always been very far from the IT sphere. And then he presented such a strange surprise to everyone.
There are two models that differ only in memory capacity, 128 GB and 512 GB. Both received flexible AMOLED displays with a diagonal of 7.8 inches and a maximum resolution of 1920x1444 pixels. It uses Snapdragon 8 Series Octa-Core 2.8GHz chips, Qualcomm Adreno 640 GPU, 6 to 8 GB of RAM. There is a 16-megapixel camera, a 4000 mAh battery and two slots for SIM cards. Technically, nothing new.
The main highlight of Escobar's smartphones is the price, it is only $ 399 and $ 499 for each of the models. For comparison, the closest competitor in the face of the Galaxy Fold has a price tag of $ 2000. True, the Escobar device is thick and massive in comparison with it, they do not talk about the elegant flagships of the Samsung Galaxy S10 or Google Pixel 4. But the price levels out almost all the shortcomings - and even remains to buy Escobar's autobiography with a personal signature, which is sold for only 99 dollars.
