I understand, that the screen used in Jolla is consuming a lot of energy while working and therefore it can not be used in the same way as we had LPS on our Nokia N9 phones.

However, if the charger is connected, there is no more issue of battery going flat. Yes, charging could be slower due to screen consuming energy, however, it would still charge the phone over night.

Therefore, request - implement option to turn on clock and other notifications display on the locked phone screen subject to charging detected.

Why would you need clock and other notifications displaying when charging the phone overnight, or just when phone is connected to charger? You could rephrase request to have this feature always on. That would make more sense to me :)

If such an option is activated, it would need also to run in 'screensaver mode' (i.e. periodically moving the clock position) in order to avoid burning the LCD screen.

Also, this has to work with not only with USB charging but also with charging pins under back cover - for wireless charging.

The display is static (=will not move) and brightness is subject to settings + lightning, but it is possible to keep the display on while the device is charging - instructions here:
