If you use Tasker, the following profile does what you want ...
State: Proximity Sensor
A1: Variable Set [ Name:%POCKET To:%DTOUT Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
A2: Display Timeout [ Secs:7 Mins:0 Hours:0 ]
A1: Display Timeout [ Secs:%POCKET Mins:0 Hours:0 ]
It will timeout after 7 sec when out in your pocket and return the timeout to the previous setting when removed from your pocket.
