The youngest Bitcoin millionaire Erik Finman yesterday announced his new Freedom Phone and got some far right supporters to advertise it for him. Not only were there no specs the ones advertising it to their viewers didn’t even know facts about the phone.
The Daily Beast interviewed the Bitcoin millionaire who went silent on social media and turns out Erik Finman’s Freedom Phone is a cheap chinese phone made by Umidigi. The exact phone appears to be the $120 Umidigi A9 Pro but Erik Finman says there are better specs in his Freedom Phone.
Turns out the Bitcoin millionaire also might be lying about the origin of his Freedom Phone. He says it was made in Hong Kong with no parts from mainland China but it appears that Umidigi manufactures their products in mainland China NEAR Hong Kong. Sure sounds like it’s being made in China to me.
His defense for the price is the opperating system when there are better alternatives on github for free where as you are paying a $380 premium to preorder his $120 Freedom Phone with a worse OS.
