As the way we work becomes more flexible, the trend of mobile workers – Or those who work on the go – became more common. As the popularity of working from anywhere increases, so does the demand for mobile devices that enhance this style of work. Consumers expect a lot from the newly launched Galaxy Z Fold4 from Samsung Electronics as it allows users to expand their workspace, based on the device’s many features.
The Samsung newsroom has put together this guide for users to take advantage of the features of the Galaxy Z Fold4, which provides a lighter, more convenient and more efficient workplace while on the go.
Do more with a lightweight smartphone and a wider screen
It’s getting smaller but wider – The Galaxy Z Fold4 is still as compact as ever, with its lighter weight and thinner hinges and edges. When you unlock your phone, the device’s wider screen provides an immersive experience that can transform your existing surroundings into a workspace anytime, anywhere. The UDC (Under Display), located at the bottom of the screen, helps you focus on your work by reducing distractions in your field of view.
With the device’s 7.6-inch screen, you can easily edit text-filled documents. Just like using a small tablet PC, you can handle a variety of tasks that are more complex than just reading or sending emails using your smartphone.
The cover screen of the Galaxy Z Fold4 has also become wider, which makes it more convenient to use. The width of the cover screen has increased while the length has decreased, making the aspect ratio similar to that of other traditional smartphones. In addition, the phone has become thinner when folded, providing an improved grip experience. Thanks to the wider view, you can comfortably enjoy most features, such as typing characters or watching videos, without having to unlock your phone.
Work efficiently from anywhere with enhanced multitasking features
The Galaxy Z Fold4’s most amazing feature is its enhanced multitasking features. Along with the wider screen, the new taskbar1 The feature and multiple windows help you get your work done remotely quickly and efficiently – As if you were using a laptop.
The taskbar is a newly added feature, but that doesn’t mean it’s not familiar. The taskbar looks and works just like the layout you’re used to seeing on your PC. You can also add frequently used apps to customize your taskbar: all apps saved as favorites on your home screen will also appear on the taskbar.
You can take full advantage of the wider screen by using Multi-window, which allows you to display up to three windows simultaneously on the screen. If you want to open another app while using a different app, just drag and drop the app from the taskbar to somewhere on the side, top, or bottom of the screen. You can also easily switch between screens between applications or change the layout with an intuitive user interface.
If you have a group of apps that you frequently use together, App Pair will help you save time. With the App Pair feature, you can save up to three apps as a single group to the taskbar. Using this feature will eliminate the hassle of having to launch every app and display every single one of them on a split screen.
Use the S Pen to work with precision and speed
With the S Pen for the Galaxy Z Fold4, you can precisely control your mobile device as if you were working with a mouse on a computer. Easily take notes on a large screen just as you would on a tablet, and you can also select only necessary parts, such as text, links or images, to quickly copy and paste.
Make the most of work and play in every angle
With the flexible mode, you can make the most of your foldable phone by freely changing the angle according to your needs. For example, by taking advantage of the Galaxy Z Fold4’s multitasking features, you can run multiple apps at the same time. You can use one window on the screen to make a video call and another window to take notes about important information, all while also looking at the meeting material on the screen.
Taking a break is just as important as working efficiently. When it’s time to get away, try flipping your screen full of work-related apps and instead watch a video on Cover Screen to lighten your mood. With thinner bezels and an improved aspect ratio of the cover screen, you can enjoy an immersive experience while watching a video. With Flexible Mode, you can adjust your Galaxy Z Fold4 to best suit any situation.
Capture work, play and everything in between
Whether you’re working around the clock or off, the Galaxy Z Fold4’s various features stand out. For example, during your 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 View Camera), where the camera is positioned below the screen, help reduce screen distractions and allow you to fully immerse yourself in the game.
In addition, Galaxy Z Fold4 users can also take advantage of the device’s large screen while taking photos. A larger image sensor and upgraded resolution enable high-quality shooting day or night. By enabling Cover Screen Preview, a photo 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 benefits from Capture View is Zoom Map. With the larger Zoom Map automatically activated in the Capture View area when the rear camera is zoomed in by 20x or more, it allows you to compare the enlarged image and the original image ratio side by side at a glance. Locating a subject while zooming in is usually tricky, as quality degrades and small movements become very shaky on the camera. However, the larger zoom map makes it possible to quickly and easily locate the target to take that perfect shot.
Galaxy Z Fold4 pushes the boundaries of mobile devices with its wide screen and multitasking functionality. If you’re a mobile worker who values the convenience and flexibility of working from anywhere, we recommend the Galaxy Z Fold 4 for your ultimate on-the-go workplace productivity experience. However, whether you’re on or off the clock, you can still take advantage of the Galaxy Z Fold4’s features to get the most out of your daily routine.
