Eager to personal a Samsung Galaxy Fold however haven’t got that a lot cash, Escobar Inc — the tech firm owned by Pablo Escobar’s brother Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria — may need one thing for you. It is known as the Escobar Fold 2, touted because the “Real Samsung Killer Phone”, and seems to have a Galaxy Fold-like design. Some of the important thing specs of the fake foldable cellphone have additionally been offered which are consistent with what we noticed on the Galaxy Fold. We cannot belief the vendor, although. Can we?
The design featured on the advertising and marketing renders of the Escobar Fold 2 appears to be the imitation of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It seems to have the identical two-fold design in addition to a complete of 5 cameras that we noticed on the Samsung cellphone final yr. To give some distinction (and possibly to showcase some luxurious), the mimic comes with a gold vinyl pores and skin with a Escobar Inc’s branding.
In a press assertion, Gaviria specified his purpose with the brand new transfer and highlighted that “some parts” of the Escobar Fold 2 had been sourced from China.
“My goal is to become the overstock kingpin of electronical [sic] devices this year,” stated Gavaria, Pablo Escobar’s brother and founding father of Escobar Inc. “All these factories simply have too much technology laying around, nobody is buying anything in China from secondary factories. We cut the prices and give clients direct discounts under the Escobar brand umbrella.”
The Escobar Inc empire needs to take a dig at Samsung by making a promotional video for YouTube titled “Rest in peace Samsung”. The voiceover within the hazy video says, “Samsung will not survive… Pablo is still upset.”
Further, a particular area — ripsamsung.com — has been created that redirects to the pre-order web page of the Fold 2 cellphone. The cellphone is up for pre-orders at a price ticket of $399 (roughly Rs. 28,400). This is considerably decrease than the Samsung Galaxy Fold worth that’s set at $1,980 within the US (or Rs. 1,64,999 in India).
More than the design, it’s the pricing that brings the scepticism in regards to the genuineness of the Escobar Fold 2. As Android Police speculates, it may simply be a Chinese clone of the Galaxy Fold that’s up on the market at $435.85 (roughly Rs. 31,000) by way of some e-commerce shops in China.
This is notably not the primary time when Escobar Inc has introduced a mimic of a preferred cellphone. Last yr, the corporate introduced the Fold 1 as its first foldable smartphone that was discovered to be none apart from the rebranded model of the Royole Flexpai that was launched in 2018.
It is sort of probably that the imitations designed by Escobar will not supply much like the unique fashions. Also, it’s unclear whether or not the telephones would come with the specs which were talked about formally.
