If this iPhone 11 Pro is anything like the Escobar Fold 2 (the gold-plated Samsung Galaxy Fold), then the gold-plating is going be a sticker foil that tech reviewer Marques Brownlee had ‘reviewed'.

Besides peeling off the gold foil, Brownlee had mentioned that the smartphone was nothing more than a repackaged Galaxy Fold and most people who had placed orders for it did not receive the product. The same is probably going to happen for the iPhone 11 Pro Escobar Inc is trying to sell now.

The company has, however, said that the phone is going to ship with all ‘original' Apple accessories like cable, charger and headphone and the Escobar logo engraved on the back, and come in “luxury wooden box”.

Escobar Inc says that the iPhone 11 Pro will ship with all original Apple accessories and come in a luxury wooden box.
