As the way we work becomes more flexible, the trend of hybrid workers – or those who work on the move – becomes more common. As the popularity of working from anywhere increases, so does the demand for mobile devices that power this style of work. Users have high expectations for the newly released Galaxy Z Fold4 from Samsung Electronics, as it allows them to expand their work space thanks to the many functions of the device.
Samsung Newsroom created this guide for users to take advantage of the features of Galaxy Z Fold4, which offers a lighter, more convenient and efficient work environment wherever you are.
Do more with less weight and the widest screen on your smartphone
It got smaller, but wider: Galaxy Z Fold4 is still as compact as ever, with an even lighter weight, thinner bezels and hinges. When you unfold your phone, the device’s even larger screen offers an immersive experience that can transform your current environment into an anytime, anywhere workspace. The Under Display Camera (UDC) helps you focus on your work by minimizing distracting factors in your field of vision.
Thanks to its 7.6-inch widescreen display, you can comfortably edit even text-heavy documents. Just like using a small tablet, you can handle a variety of tasks with your smartphone that are more complex than just reading or sending email.
The Cover Screen of Galaxy Z Fold4 has also been enlarged, making it even more comfortable to use. The width of this screen has increased while the length has decreased, making the aspect ratio similar to that of other mainstream smartphones. In addition, the phone has become slimmer when folded, providing a better grip experience. Thanks to the wider width, you can comfortably enjoy most features, such as typing or watching videos, without having to unfold the phone.
Work efficiently from anywhere with enhanced multitasking capabilities
The most striking features of the new Galaxy Z Fold4 are its enhanced multitasking capabilities. Along with the wider screen, the new Taskbar feature and the Multi-window help you get your work done remotely quickly and efficiently, just like using a laptop.
The Taskbar is a newly added feature, but that doesn’t mean it’s unfamiliar. It looks and works like the layout you’re used to seeing on a PC, and you can even add frequently used apps to personalize it: all apps saved as favorites on your home screen will also appear in the Taskbar.
You can take full advantage of the larger screen by using Multi-window, which allows you to simultaneously view up to three windows on the screen. If you want to open another app while using a different app, simply drag and drop the app from the Taskbar to somewhere on the side, top, or bottom of the screen. You can also easily switch screens between apps or change the layout with its intuitive user interface.
If you have a mix of apps that you use together frequently, then the App Pair feature will help you save time as you can save up to three apps as a single group in the Taskbar. Using this feature will eliminate the hassle of having to launch each app and view each one on a split screen.
Use S Pen to work with precision and speed
With S Pen for Galaxy Z Fold4 you can precisely control your mobile device as if you were working with a mouse on a PC. You can comfortably take notes on a big screen like you would on a tablet, and you can also select only the necessary parts, such as text, links or photos for quick copy and paste.
Get the most out of work and play at every angle
With Flex mode, you can get the most out of your smartphone foldable freely changing the angle according to your needs. For example, by taking advantage of the Galaxy Z Fold4’s multitasking capabilities, you can launch multiple apps at the same time. You can use one window of the screen for a video call and another to take notes on important information, all while looking at the meeting material on the screen.
Taking a break is just as important as working efficiently. When it’s time to step away, try ditching your screen cluttered with work-related apps and instead watch a video on the Cover Screen to lighten your mood. Thanks to the slim bezels and optimized aspect ratio for the Cover Screen, you can have an immersive experience while watching a video. With Flex mode, you can adjust your Galaxy Z Fold4 to best suit any situation.
Capture work, play and everything in between
The many features of the new Galaxy Z Fold4 stand out whether you’re working or not. For example, during break time, you can enjoy watching videos or playing games on a large, immersive screen that brings your content to life. Small but important details, like the UDC (Under Display Camera), in which the camera is positioned below the screen, help minimize on-screen distractions and allow you to fully immerse yourself in the game.
Additionally, Galaxy Z Fold4 users can also take advantage of the device’s large screen while taking photos. The larger image sensor and improved resolution enable high-quality photos to be taken day or night. By enabling “Cover Screen Preview”, you can simultaneously check the preview on the Cover Screen, while “Capture View” allows you to check photos taken while using the camera.
Another notable feature that takes advantage of CaptureView is he Zoom Map. With the largest Zoom Map automatically activated in the Capture View area when the rear camera is zoomed in 20x or more, you can compare the zoomed image and the original image ratio side by side at a glance. Locating a subject while zooming in is usually difficult, as quality drops and small movements look very shaky in camera. However, a larger Zoom Map makes it possible to locate a subject quickly and easily for the perfect shot.
Galaxy Z Fold4 pushes the limits of mobile devices with its wide screen and various multitasking features. If you’re a hybrid worker who values the convenience and flexibility of working from anywhere, we recommend the Galaxy Z Fold 4 for the best productivity experience in the workplace. However, whether you’re working or not, you can still enjoy the features of Galaxy Z Fold4 to make the most of your daily routine.
