Roberto Escobar, brother of Pablo Escobar, has launched a new foldable phone. Called Escobar Fold 2, the new foldable device seems to be a clone of Samsung Galaxy Fold. The company’s official website says its latest foldable phone is a “Samsung phone killer.” The Escobar Fold 2 foldable phone is priced at $399, which is around 28,440 in India. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is priced at Rs 1,64,999 in India and in the US, it is available for around $2,000.
Notably, this is the second foldable phone from Pablo Escobar’s brother, and the Escobar Fold 1 was launched back in December 2019. The company’s product page says “Rest in Peace Samsung, Pablo always wins. This is an incredible phone, at a competitive price.” However, a few reports say that buying the Escobar Fold 2 could be a bad decision as those who ordered the Escobar Fold 1 hasn’t yet received the foldable phone. The customers have instead received a book from the company, PCMag reported.
