i dont get the “foldable” coined term, it’s basically a smart flip phone 💀 So how does tempered glass work on this? so many questions.

 

yep gimmick it is

Having a phone the size of a brick in my pocket?

 No thanks I'll pass.

I'm pretty sure that device is being camouflaged for design confidentiality. 

 

OT: A foldable display seems to have no actual purpose, except for the bragging rights the company gets to make for developing it. Also, ew... it's so ugly and unnecessary.

I think it can work for students and business people. Lots of them use iPads and their phones and this will make it easier for them carry instead of carrying both items.

Im mean I did the flip too last decade but you can’t end a call in a manner similar to a razr. The demo they showed looks like your putting a large ass notebook in your ears, or when its folded. You can’t snap it. which is a bummer.

Great concept but the world still isn't ready.

 

Imagine the pricing and the inevitable issues that'll come with it.

ikr? like the flipping mechanic will not age well. I assume they’ll have to come up some crazy tech that goes with it and how can you protect that area? a tempered glass surely won’t. And the price for that? 2k? Gurl bye.

Lemme just do my pocket a favor and have a regular sized phone.
