What was that a response to?  (Can't access twitter)

I'll attach it as a screenshot for others who can't get into it:

basically it's something for the "near future"

I have been considering one of these for a while... Designed for P20 Pro.

1. How well the magnets hold the case on with thickness and possible gap created?

2. Will the halves grip the phone with friction and fit alone?

3. Would some of the locating pins need to be shave to allow the phone to open?

Well it might work while closed, but I doubt they would stick when slid open, but could be worth a try. Note though that the hard edges could be complex to modify for the buttons and fingerprint reader.

Being creative, what about modifying TWO sets? One for each part of the Pro1, cutting down the covering back on one case and the front on the other case...

...One thing I have found out is the Pro1 screen is far easier to open with the protectors over the screen, just need to find one that fits...

 

 

I totally agree on that. I think at this point I am going to wait for @EskeRahn to have a EUREKA! moment and then just buy whatever he recommends.
My goal is to wait until I find something that needs zero mods and just go with the cheapest option until then.

I would not at all be surprised to see F(x)tec introduce a soft shell that can be used either as is or adhered into a flip case. Sort of similar to what we do when we take out the inner shell of a P20 Pro flip case, and then (optionally) glue it back in. This could be an adhesive strip,

Let us see if we can not tempt @Waxberry to do that.

I think we will have a hard time doing a two part case, but we will see. The first I got today for Honor 9 lite as expected is too small, but cutting off one end the front part sort of works, but not good. so hopefully something can be done with a longer case intended for an edge type screen (if we can find it)

Just ordered this as a (too long) candidate for the top.

Whatever happened to that prototype hard case?

If it's not going into final production, I think they should decide ASAP to release the dimensions/manufacturer and so on...

Have to agree. 

But I hope they do sort out a range of cases so they have more to sell in the store.

The Pro1 got two Hall-probes, one for detecting Slider open&close and one that seems designed for detecting a Flip-case!
See this.

Now THAT was a nice surprise!

It does not seem to be part of the BOE screen assembly looking at their imges, so a nice Easter egg from F(x)tec!

It does not currently seem to have any action (yet), But I hope an OTA will add a functionality similar to the power button, to turn off&on the screen. Any comments from @Waxberry here perhaps?

Suitable magnets we can inject in a flip-case are by far expensive. e.g this.

Sen in portrait It is roughly 3.5cm from the top and 1.5cm from the side.

I've said on this thread previously that my Pro1 lives in a thin leather fitBAG pouch... But some days, like when I'm in the workshop with lots of grinder dust, or if I'm working on site, I've wished I had a case that offered a little more rugged storage.

By coincidence, this morning I noticed that my HP35s calculator has a very similar footprint to the Pro1, and the battered old HP supplied hardshell zip case is a great fit. The Pro1 is a little loose inside it on it's own (but restrained by the elastic straps or net inside the case), or a snug fit if still inside the fitBAG sleeve.

The HP original case looks identical to this one, except for the HP branding (not the seller I used, but the best photos I found online)

I've found an ebay seller with an aftermarket version of the case, so I've ordered one to see how similar it is. If it isn't good enough, no problem, I've a spare HP35s that doesn't have a case :classic_cool:

The iPhone 11 pro

 

But that is only 14.4 cm long, is the bottom so elastic that it could stretch almost a whole cm extra? Or did you heat it?

The iphoe 11 pro has 144 mm height, the elasticity of the case makes up for 1mm. It holds the phone very well. 

Amazing stretch, 10mm. Have you got a link for it, or did you buy it in a store?

I got it from a store out in the mall, the brand is XIEKE for the iPhone 11 pro,  the downside of the case is the texture, it makes my hand sweaty.

Not exactly a protective case, but it sure does add some texture,  This is a matte black DBrand skin intended for a Note 10.  Didn't have to do a lot, The camera fit fine and the microphone hole was *almost* right.  I trim the width and that's about it.  My production skills with trimming are not the best, but the matte black color hides most of my flaws.  It definitely gives the phone more grip while leaving the nice feel of the phone in your hand.  I wasn't brave enough to try a cutout for the F(x) Tec logo.  😉
