Aston Martin has a foldable telephone that you simply indubitably shouldn’t purchase

Whether it’s t-shirts, hats, watches, briefcases, bicycles, or even perfume, automakers — especially those at the pricier end of the market — just love to sell branded goodies. It’s another way to cash in on the brand’s badge value and get free exposure from the suckers drivers that actually buy it.

Never has it been a good idea to buy a piece of high-end car branded merch, and Aston Martin’s foldable phone proves that perfectly.

Yes, you read that correctly. Aston Martin is selling a foldable phone. Well kind of, it’s actually a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 with a bunch of Aston Martin Racing Edition merchandise in the box and a heftier price tag.

Under the surface, it’s exactly the same as the standard Samsung device, it comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage — plenty of space for all those hi-res pictures of that Aston Martin DB11 you don’t even own.
