Same here. It’s easy enough to raise to look (or whatever that feature is called) or to ask Siri the time or battery life. I don’t need the display on for something that’s in my pocket on on a desk for much of the time. I really don’t.
Not once, since owning/using an iPhone since summer 2007 have I ever wished for this capability/feature.
If it does come, I assume it’ll be able to be turned off/disabled in Settings. I’m sure it will.
