The Escobar Fold 2 has every chance. Note its price. It costs between $399 and $549 (depending on RAM capacity). That's a lot cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The latter is asking $2000 for the latter.

The advertising campaign is also impressive. Escobar Fold 2 is promoted with a special cynicism. Its developers released a video with the slogan "Rest in Peace Samsung. The famous competitor is wished to rest in peace.

In the video, Samsung Galaxy Fold is smashed with sledgehammers. Do the said half-naked girls. Why was such a style chosen? The creator of the Escobar Fold 2 is to blame.

We are talking about Roberto Escobar, the brother of the famous drug lord. The name of the late Pablo Escobar is familiar to many. Fortunately, Roberto took a different path.

What is good about the Escobar Fold 2? First, it's flexible. When unfolded, it offers a 7.3-inch screen. The matrix is of the Dynamic AMOLED type. The resolution is 2152 by 1536 pixels.

Secondly, it has two displays. We have already talked about the internal one. The characteristics of the outer one are more modest. It is 4.6-inch (1680 by 720 pixels).

There are no problems with the performance. Guaranteed is the Snapdragon 855 processor. Complement the configuration with 12 GB of RAM (in the top version). The base variant has 8 GB.

With flash storage is a similar story. The more expensive assembly pleases with 512 GB of space. For the thrifty, there is 128 GB. The cameras deserve a separate talk. For example, a triple rear (12 MP + 12 MP + 16 MP).

Complete the picture with a fingerprint scanner, 4380 mAh battery and two front lenses (10 MP + 8 MP). In the role of the OS is a "fresh" Android 10.

Escobar Fold 2 worthy of praise. However, Roberto Escobar has cheated. It looks like we are looking at a modified Galaxy Fold. It came from the Chinese factories that assembled the Samsung gadget.

Hence the limited batch - 200 thousand pieces. Not enough for everyone.
