Autonomy is IMO the 2nd most important stuff on phones after ergonomy.
A full screen phone with palm rejection mostly solves ergonomy (screen as big as possible yet still pocketable)., yet only a removable back can solve autonomy.

IMO the port should be completely scraped so that to disincentivize people from charging their phone and pretty much have the back itself being a charger. So instead of taking a charger, you get the phone's back w you (the phone should give you 2 of those), which would be charging while you're using giving you twice the autonomy of any modern phone.

To emphasize the effect allow the phone to be on while you make the swap (a small internal batt keeps the lights on during the swap).

It's not impossible and once's done you really maxed phones (full screen, basically infinite autonomy, hopefully good cameras/cpu/ram, minimalistic...)

Wow. Now this is what I'd expected from Samsung this year. Perhaps time to try Vivo!

Great to see some proper innovation and new thinking

this concept is unbelievable but real. The best thing about it is that it has perfected the bezel-less design without compromising with SECURITY.

From my experience, those chinese engineers are really smart. Check the reports about average IQ by country you will find that their average IQ is higher than others. they are accumulating their own knowledges faster than what we did in the past.
We are losing the future.
