Lmaoi. First one wasn't?

My suspicion, it'll have a punch hole selfie cam and that long notifications display is in fact on the curved edge.

Kangal, 26 May 2020I too don't like this form factor, not do I like the Moto R... moreThe Mate X design makes it extremely prone to scratches and damage. One can't even look beyond that, because foldable phones are already plagued by issues of being fragile, compared to regular smartphones.

Why do they need to put notch? Three cameras on the back can be used for selfie through smaller display.

Even the current smartphone with Gorilla Glass are prone to scratches, Galaxy Fold design will be the future... It just need to be improve, which will happen in the long run

I too don't like this form factor, not do I like the Moto RAZR.
The Huawei Mate X Fold is better, just need that slightly smaller (more pocketable) and with new/current specs.

Besides, this listing is very vague. It sounds more like "Splash Resistant".
There's a huge utility difference between something like IP54 (Splash Resistant), IP66 (Splash Proof), IP67/68 (Water Resistant), and IP69K/ATM10 (Pressured Water Proof).

I hope this isn't what we get, I don't just want a tablet that can fit in my pocket better...

Oh no, they gonna get rid that external display
