Pablo Escobar's brother launches 'unbreakable' gold smartphone - and vows to sue Apple

Recommended Posts

The brother of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar has launched a rather unexpected product: a foldable gold smartphone.


Roberto Escobar claims the $349 (£265) device - which is similar to Samsung's Galaxy Fold and Huawei's Mate X - is unbreakable.


Promotional stills of the Escobar Fold 1 feature Pablo's grinning mugshot as a default background, and an advert for the phone features scantily dressed models in heels.


In an interview with Digital Trends, Mr Escobar said: "My phone cannot break, because I did not have to make a glass screen like Samsung.


"Our screen is made of a special type of plastic, and we still have the best resolution. Our special plastic is very difficult to break."


Mr Escobar says he is determined to take on major tech giants - and he has the bold ambition of "beating Apple" and achieving dominance in the competitive smartphone market.


He has also revealed plans to sue Apple next month, and the entrepreneur says his lawyers are preparing a "$30bn class-action lawsuit for being "scammers" and "cheating the people and selling worthless phones".
