Who would have imagine the name Pablo Escobar would ever find a way to trend in the technology world. It’s almost 26 years ago now that the notorious drug lord died, and now a smartphone which bears the name Pablo Escobar Fold 1 has been launched. The device comes as a surprise as we never saw it coming. Not only is the smartphone promoted as having a durable design, but the device is also unarguably the cheapest foldable phone that we’ll be seeing for a long time to come. It has a starting price of $349.
Pablo Escobar Fold 1 Specs and Features
Apart being the cheapest and one of the first foldable smartphones around, the Escobar Fold 1 is equally one of the cheapest Snapdragon 855 devices. Yes, for that amount, you get a snapdragon 855 chipset onboard and wait for it, 8GB of RAM as well as a massive 512GB expandable storage.
The Escobar Fold 1 packs a 7.8-inch flexible AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1444 that folds outwards in half. For photography, the foldable flagship features a 16MP f/1.8 primary camera and a 20MP secondary shooter. The device is carrier unlocked, works across all networks around the globe, and includes free worldwide shipping.
Taking a good look at the smartphone, it reminds us of the Royole Flexpai, fueling the speculations that the device is a rebranded Flexpai. The specifications of both foldable phones also match. However, the outer shell has a gold lining with a fancy Escobar Inc logo engraved across the back.
The Fold 1 is presently available to pre-ordered from Escobar Inc’s website but for that outrageously cheap amount, you may need to tread with caution on this one.
