I just found out you can hold it upside down and its doable. So I like it, saves hw - thinner body - better price, with full thickness for cameras doubling as selfie and always accessible screen...its good.
Having the screen on the outside is a logical consequence of avoiding redundant phone parts. I just hope they can protect the screen adequatly. Other than that I love the design, as a guy I hate the size of current phones, they don't fit nicely into pockets, the punchhole, popup cam problem is also solved. Now throw in some wireless charging for me and I'm sold on this.
Crackling Doom, 31 Aug 2020Glass bends if it's heated enough. How do you think curved glass edges exist? Ok so you'll have to heat the phone before unfolding it? Very clever. Here I didn't realize that.
I have the fold and the z flip and wouldnt want the screen on the outside,I already feel nervous using them and would be anxious having it fold on the outside...

AnonD-754814, 31 Aug 2020Looks like these Chinese companies are pretty much into outward folding design.
Becaus... morecan't make seems overly ridiculous, more of like being sarcastic...
they didn't make inwards folding is mainly due to they want the screen to be of fulltime use without the need of a secondary smaller screen...

Because they can't make inward folding capable display.

I guess the codename of this device is Superman.
Why? because the 'underwear' is outside...
Now, seriously, how are you suposed to protect the screen?
This will die in a pocket in 5 minutes lol. Folding screen inside, sure, why not. But soft fragile on outside, VERY bad idea.
Bad idea. They could get it thinner than the RAZR with its two displays but at the cost of leaving the screen exposed. Plus you can't put a screen protector on it besides the permanent one.
