    Any chance of a bundled screen protector? I know pre-orders ship with a case, which is welcome, but does this also include a screen protector?

    I’ve always operated my Priv with a screen protector from day one. I didn’t with my old Xperia Pro and the screen isn’t in particularly decent condition!

    Given the rarity of keyboard phones (after the Xperia Pro, I had a US Motorola Photon Q modified to add a SIM slot, then when that died the Priv was the only keyboard phone) I want to do as much as possible to protect it.

    Really looking forward to returning to a landscape keyboard phone.

    Would be nice if they get one.
    Perhaps if the screen is identical to one used on a more common model, we could get one for that one. The dimensions seems rather close to the Meizu 16(x), so perhaps that is a match?

    If not my personal fall back plan is to try if a tempered glass protector for a Samsung S8+ or S9+ has the right side curvature (the width is 0.2 mm larger resp. smaller) and then use a glass-cutter to shorten it sufficiently.

    And if that fails too my fall-back plan is to get plain foil-protectors for one or the other. those should be easy to cut.

    A company in Germany need only the dimensions of the screen to build a customized screen protector.
    If Fx(tec) send the the correct dimension I will ask https://atfolix.info to create a new screen protector for european customers. The company build a lot of screen protectors for me like GPD Pocket2.

    Are they making foils only, or also (one direction) curved tempered glass protectors?.(like this)

    Yes, I just called the company. The foil protect the whole curved display!

    Thanks. That would be a nice fall back. But if possible i would much rather have a tempered glass protector as I do not really fear of scratches on gorilla glass as much as I fear breaking it.

    In my experience a simple £1-3 curved tempered glass protector takes the energy of many minor impacts. Though the quality is not that high, and they typically get a cracked line or two within about two months, so for My Priv (and the S8-) I just bought a stack, and change them whenever needed. It could typically break while playing with my dog and having the phone in the pocket bumping into something hard, e.g. him swinging a large branch.

    This failed miserably, but protectors for the Elephone U Pro with the same front exists.

    On the other hand it would be nice to know whether some manufacturer will produce the screen protector film.

    Well screen protectors already exists :) As the screen is identical to the one on the Elephone U Pro, see e.g. this post

    (…) Later I found specific ones I could order from Amazon, but honestly don’t remember the brands (I got 2 different ones, both have the same – good – performance). I drop the phone real often and so far (2 years) the screen is still safe and sound. (…)

    I thought a little and remembered the brands. I used both Armorsuit and IQ Shield. Both were great and lasted quite a long time (1 1/2 year – Armorsuit; now currently using an IQ shield for ~ 8 months).

    I’ve ordered this one in hopes it will fit, I’ll update when the phone releases and arrives here :). https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32852486557.html

    I´ve to login, well.. this one should work: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Remanbor-2PCS-For-Elephone-U-Anti-Explosion-Non-glass-Film-Protective-Replacement-Screen-Guard-For-Elephone/32852486557.html

    Hmm trying in a second browser with cookies cleared, both links need login… Aliexpress has been a bit fussy lately even requiring login just for searches even (at least so I’ve been told), don’t really know what the deal is with that.

    Interesting, and definitely not expensive. I would have preferred tempered glass though.
    Just ordered 5, and hope they fit… :)

    ADD: Seems that the same can be found a bit cheaper here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32851277108.html
    (silly me….)

    ADD2, Actually one can cancel orders for some period at the order list, so was stingy and tried that….

    (I experienced the same inconsistent behaviour – I’m new to aliexpress)
