    You know, it's cool, actually practical (surprising for a modern tech development), but somehow I just don't care.

    This is a folding design I can get behind! The only issue I spotted though is that it doesn't seem very sturdy in it's unfolded state. If you look closer there is a clear curve there and he appears to be holding it very carefully, it looks like he is almost propping it up with his hands to keep it unfolded.

    Got to wonder what it was recorded with. I doubt it's much of an official marketing tool, but recording the co-founder and then uploading in 360p doesn't exactly ooze class or help hype. It's not like they're trying to be deliberately obscure.

    Even Xiaomi's cheapest phones record in at least 1080p as far as I'm aware. Mine does 4K@30fps, and it's just a Mi A1.

    Hopefully just an early prototype, proof-of-concept sort of thing... to be made proper sturdy later on?

    That's true Zak33, but check this out, larger sensors in phones can bring real benefits:
