Is there any specific reason why the spanning and environmental variables are targeted towards dual screen devices? My main concern is that there should be a way of identifying a foldable independent of if it is seamless or with a seam. This proposal can be useful even on seamless devices (I’m thinking here of Galaxy Fold and other upcoming devices) to adapt the UX based on the state of the device. At the moment we are working in Samsung on an explainer that will shed more light on scenarios and new capabilities and how they would combine with the spanning media feature and fold environmental variables.

Out of curiosity, in a device like the Galaxy Fold or the Motorola Razr, and according to the definition provided in the explainer about ‘spanning’, would it resolve to none? If that’s the case, it might be better to specify the ‘single-fold-vertical’ or ‘single-fold-horizontal’ and appropriate env fold variables to potentially accommodate the content on the web page? 

To summarize, my concern is with the ‘multiple screen’ wording that keeps appearing in the explainers, since these concepts are useful for single screen devices as well.
