I am typically of the opinion that we should not given consideration to those that are in search of it for the fallacious causes or beneath false pretenses, however I simply could not ignore this story: Escobar Inc. (sure, that Escobar) is now telling customers that it’s going to sell a very-much-not-a-counterfeit Galaxy Fold for the low, low worth of $400.

Let us be clear from the outset: the product pictured on the corporate’s web site is very clearly a real, real Samsung Galaxy fold lined in a cheesy gold vinyl pores and skin with Escobar Inc’s logos haphazardly slapped upon it. Let us even be clear that the cellphone’s specs, just like the Snapdragon 855 processor, 5 cameras, 7.three” AMOLED major show, and most others are lifted straight from the Galaxy Fold.

The Galaxy Fold prices $1980. Escobar’s Fold 2 prices $400. Where’s that additional $1580 being made up? Probably within the gullibility of anybody silly sufficient to hand this firm $400. If Escobar Inc ever delivered such a product at such a worth level—which it won’t—it might definitely lose super quantities of cash on every sale.

So, why hassle with such an apparent rip-off within the first place? I am solely left to speculate. This is so blatantly, clearly a Galaxy Fold with a vinyl wrap on it that anybody with eight functioning mind cells would have the opportunity to see it, which suggests that the product described right here is by no means going to be delivered. One doable clarification is that Escobar is trying to sell this Chinese clone of the Fold, made by a counterfeiter with an apparently lengthy historical past producing Samsung knockoffs.

I don’t know if this “clone” cellphone is real, what it truly seems to be like, or the way it works. I think it is merely supposed to be used within the unlawful counterfeit commerce, offered to unsuspecting patrons by social media marketplaces and shady Craigslist advertisements, like phony AirPods. And I can guarantee you that it doesn’t have a Snapdragon 855 processor or a 7.three” folding AMOLED show.

Anyway, the corporate posted a video of 1 its scantily-clad fashions destroying what seems to be a real Galaxy Fold 5G with a sledgehammer. They set it on hearth. It’s kinda enjoyable. Enjoy.
