wasox, 10 Apr 2018I knew it!! I always knew this was going to happen! The notch i... moreAll of those are within possibility nowadays xD
The hole in the middle of the screen could be a "smart fidget spinner" for example... oh god I can't stop laughing at how that sounded like xD

hmm 🤔, an fragment of ice that is also a phone you say ?

It can be more beautiful if its side also has transparent parts like the edges, and should be extremely thin if measured at the very edge (and this edge tapers all the way to the screen, giving the phone "transparent but thick bezels" if seen from front). try imagine holding a piece of thin ice.

use those transparent edges for notification LEDs (multicolored, spreaded across the full circle of the phone), just like Xperia S series of old.

as for the notches, other commenters have mentioned uses of them that makes sense (stereo speakers, sensors on top, and return of the home button+fps on the front, the way I like it).

this idea of having tapered, wide, transparent bezels makes the screen real estate very limited. No, it won't be foldable. It's a sheet of ice. So let's say, 4.6-5 inch ?

Also ideally the phone thickest point (middle) should be thin as well, say 6-7mm. So the phone would have very small battery, say 2000mah or even 1000mah... That real world uses would require a battery mod connected by pogo pins at the back (5.000mah,10.000mah or even 20.000mah).

IP 68 is unquestionable. Drop test... Well, some of the commenters mentioned hard materials to use other than glass for the transparent sections.

For me, actually, this phone seems more exciting than any other phone with a notch I've seen. I'll be looking forward to hear more about Iceberg, to see it in real life use.

I think Nokia done it first on their Nokia X2 Android..

As one who has been ranting against huge bezels for years, i can see why a lot of these OEMs are trying to increase their stb ratios with the notch. But preferably a small bezel up top and bottom or use both top/bottom minimal bezel area for front facing speakers.
Also will gladly like to see a 16:9AR or even 17:9AR screen rather than all the narrow elongated 18+:9AR devices.
