Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, biological brother of Pablo Escobar has produced a foldable smartphone—the Escobar Fold 2. The device features a unique flexible screen that lets the user fold their regular phone into a tablet-sized smartphone. The Escobar Fold 2 phone costs $399 and is currently only available on the Escobar Inc. site.
The device, which features unique technology and design, was designed in the United States, is being assembled in Hong Kong, while some parts have been sourced from Shenzhen, China.
“My goal is to become the overstock kingpin of electronic devices this year,” Escobar Inc. founder Gaviria said in a release. “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.”
