Drug mafia Pablo Escobar’s brother, Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, took the smartphone industry by storm when it came up with the Pablo Escobar Fold 1, a smartphone that had almost everything Apple had to offer with its then flagship device. He is at it again as the company has announced the launch of Pablo Escobar Fold 2, a smartphone that aims to “kill” Samsung this time.
The Fold 2 is identical to the Samsung Galaxy Fold that was launched last year in terms of specs but is almost five times less than what the Samsung Galaxy Fold costs. The Fold 2 is reportedly designed in the US and manufactured in Hong Kong and a few parts being shipped from China. The Fold 2’s top-end variant costs USD 550 and comes with a 512GB disk space. The other features like processor, battery size, and the main display size remain identical to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The camera arrangement on the back is slightly different as the Fold 2 has a five camera panel while the Samsung Galaxy Fold has six. Roberto Escobar stated in a press release that his company is looking to take advantage of the less explored second factories and provide electronic devices to clients on a cheaper rate.
Talking about smartphone launches, LG has decided to pull out of the Mobile World Congress due to concerns regarding the Coronavirus outbreak in China. That implies that LG has also postponed the launch of its new smartphones to some later stage in 2020. LG is not the first company to pull out from the MWC 2020. ZTE also announced that it will not participate in the event due to similar reasons. Coronavirus has hit the Chinese industries badly so far.
