Yeah, my colleague’s Samsung does this. Kind of a neat gimmick. You place the phone on the desk and can glance at it. Except… if you’re not using the phone, but you’re at a desk, you’re probably using the computer? Which has its own clock?

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.

Ah hell, yourself a favor and just stick it out until 2023, and then treat yourself to a proper iPhone!

On a positive note, they will have figured out how to get a 7-8" smartphone to still fit in your pocket!

Kinda makes me think about what will be expected/commonplace come 2030 or so...

iPhone XX...the thinnest 11" smartphone on the planet.

We may not need laptops if they keep this shit up. Your phone will be your phone, laptop, desktop, tablet and TV!

It's headed that way. I really like the way they handle phones and wall displays on the show The Expanse.

Like many of you, I'm going to sit out the first few rounds of folding phones. Trying to understand how anything will be superior to a screen that undergoes minimal flexure... but huzzah to innovation, if they can pull it off!!

Oh, they'll pull it off … eventually. I'm still trying to sort out why it's needed other than "Because, that's why!"

My eyesight isn't getting any better, but I'm finding myself wanting a smaller phone.

Yeah, I can't wrap my head around the folding screen. All we've ever known is "this thing should NEVER flex or be anything but perfectly straight and fact, it's usually a controversy, or a repair program, when it isn't!"

And now, to imagine it folding like a wallet just blows my mind. Will there be a visible crease/seam? Or will that be "built in", to where a screen will be on two separate planes with the in-between gap designed around? But all the talk says "folding screen", so that means the screen itself is bending/folding.

All that is way beyond my feeble grasp.

Apple being Apple, they'll pull it off. But it'll be pricey, and that first generation will be a dice-roll to end all dice-rolls. I wouldn't buy one if you put a bazooka to my neck. That's a little too Rev. A for me.

I'd be completely thrilled with a third-generation, full-face iPhone SE at some point. And I'm sure it's coming. Some day. I'm guessing they'd love to have all their iPhones with a full-face, no button/chin/forehead design. "de-Cadillac" the 12 mini design (remove a camera, ditch the OLED, downgrade a few display/camera-related specs as needed, tweak the materials/construction, etc.) and there's your $399 third-gen SE.

I don't know what's coming this fall...the rumors are all over the place the past few months.
