As the way we work becomes more flexible, the trend is mobile workers — or those who work on the go — becoming more common. As the popularity of working from anywhere increases, so does the demand for mobile devices that empower this work style. Consumers have high expectations for Samsung Electronics’ newly launched Galaxy Z Fold4, as it allows users to expand their workspace based on the device’s many functions.
Samsung Newsroom has put together this guide so that users can take advantage of the features of the Galaxy Z Fold4, which provide an easier, more convenient and more efficient workplace on the go.
Do more with your smartphone’s lighter weight and wider screen
It has become smaller, but wider — Galaxy Z Fold4 is still as compact as ever with its even lighter weight and thinner hinge and bezels. When you unfold your phone, the device’s even wider screen delivers an immersive experience that can transform your current surroundings into a workspace anytime, anywhere. The UDC (Under Display Camera), located below the screen, helps you focus on your work by minimizing factors that distract your field of vision.
Thanks to the device’s 7.6-inch wide screen, you can even easily edit documents full of text. Just like using a small tablet PC, you can handle a number of tasks more complex than just reading or sending emails with your smartphone.
The Galaxy Z Fold4’s cover screen has also become wider, making it even more convenient to use. The width of the deck screen has increased while the length has decreased, making the aspect ratio similar to that of other conventional smartphones. In addition, the phone has become thinner when folded, which provides an improved grip experience. Thanks to the wider width, you can comfortably enjoy most functions, such as typing letters or watching videos, without ever having to unfold your phone.
Work efficiently from anywhere with enhanced multitasking capabilities
The most striking features of the Galaxy Z Fold4 are its enhanced multitasking capabilities. Along with the wider screen, the new taskbar1 function and Multi-window help you get your remote work done quickly and efficiently — as if you were using a laptop.
The taskbar is a recently added feature, but that doesn’t mean it’s not known. The taskbar looks and works just like the layout you’re used to seeing on a PC. You can even add frequently used apps to customize your taskbar: all the apps saved as favorites on your home screen will also appear on the taskbar.
You can take full advantage of the wider display by using Multi-window, which lets you see up to three windows on the screen at the same time. If you’d like to open another app while using another application, simply drag and drop the app from the taskbar to a location 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 combination of apps that you often use together, the App Pair feature will help you save time. With the App Pair feature, you can save up to three apps as a single group on the taskbar. Using this feature saves you the trouble of having to launch each app and view each one on a split screen.
Use the S Pen to work with precision and speed
With the 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 conveniently take notes on a large screen just like on a tablet, and you can also select only the necessary parts, such as text, links or photos to quickly copy and paste.
Make the most of work and play from every angle
With Flex mode, you can get the most out 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 capabilities, you can launch multiple apps at the same time. You can use one window on the screen for a video call and another window to take notes on important information, all while also viewing a meeting material on the screen.
Taking a break is just as important as working efficiently. When it’s time to walk away, try flipping your screen full of work-related apps and instead watch a video on the home screen to lighten your mood. Thanks to the thin bezels and the aspect ratio optimized for the deck 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.
Catch work, play and everything in between
Galaxy Z Fold4’s various features stand out whether you’re on or off. During the break, for example, you can enjoy watching videos or playing games on a large, immersive screen that brings your content to life. Small but important details such as the UDC (Under Display Camera), where the camera is located below the screen, help minimize 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. The larger image sensor and upgraded resolution enable high-quality recording day or night. Enabling “Front Screen Preview” allows the portrait to control the preview on the front screen at the same time, while “Record View” allows you to control the photos taken while using the camera.
Another notable feature that takes advantage of Capture View is the zoom map. With a larger zoom map activated automatically in the Capture View area when the rear camera is magnified 20x or more, it allows you to compare the magnified image and the original aspect ratio side by side at a glance. It is typically difficult to locate a subject while zoomed in, as the quality drops and small movements appear very shaky on the camera. However, a larger zoom card makes it possible to locate a subject quickly and easily to capture the perfect shot.
Galaxy Z Fold4 pushes the boundaries of mobile devices with its wide screen and various multitasking functions. If you’re a mobile worker who values the convenience and flexibility of working anywhere, then we recommend the Galaxy Z Fold 4 for your ultimate on-the-go productivity experience in the workplace. But whether you’re on or off, you can still take advantage of Galaxy Z Fold4 features to get the most out of your daily routine.
1 Taskbar feature is only supported on main screen.
