5+ Reasons Why the New Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a Game Changer

The world may feel like it has come to a standstill in 2020, but over at Samsung, things are going full-steam ahead with the debut of their latest category-defining foldable device—the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. Designed to shape the future of mobile tech, cutting edge features such as powerful performance, foldable glass and impressive battery life come together in a futuristic and innovative form factor of the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. 

The unique shift of today’s work-life culture underscores the relevance of the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G in a landscape that is constantly changing. With so many questions yet to be answered about the demands of our work and personal lives, having one device that seamlessly consolidates every consideration and feature is a luxury worth pursuing. 

It’s no secret that we rely on our devices more than ever in order to keep up with work, stay connected with our loved ones and everything in between. As such, finding a device that you can depend on is critical. No matter what uses you’re relying on your gadgets to tackle — whether it’s a transatlantic conference call, a virtual workout class, or a new show to binge on — the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is an uncompromising device that makes any demand, from work or life, easy to meet. Here’s how:

BEAUTIFUL DESIGN

First of all, let’s acknowledge we don’t buy our devices exclusively for their operating systems or new tech features. Beautiful design is powerful and compelling. If you’re going to spend money on a luxury item, you want it to look (and feel) like one, too. Featuring a striking and premium design with innovative engineering, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G fits the bill. Folded, it’s a phone; unfolded, it looks like a tablet—the best of both worlds. 

Transitioning between the two formats is made possible by the Hideaway Hinge which delivers a smooth and fluid motion that leads smartphone folding technology. Achieving multiple angles is also possible with Flex Mode1, providing the flexibility to define what works best for your own personal, hands-free experience. Whether you’re streaming content, taking photos or leading a virtual presentation, the days of propping your smartphone up or needing extra equipment and hoping it doesn’t come crashing down are over. 

The device is incredibly intuitive – you simply fold it to use Flex view on the Main Screen to make a hands-free video call with Google Duo. Alternatively, you can also flip to Cover View on the front to comfortably watch your favourite show2.

Aesthetically speaking, we already mentioned the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a premium device which is why it’s not surprising the colour options underline this point. You can opt for the eye-catching and bold Mystic Bronze hue or the highly sophisticated Mystic Black for a timeless look.

For those who enjoy customization, you can also select the colour of the hinge (Metallic Silver, Metallic Gold, Metallic Red, or Metallic Blue) to either complement or contrast your the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G3. Consider this a pocket-sized work of art that you can carry around with you (and show off), wherever you go. And if matching tech is your thing, recent launches from Samsung including new Samsung Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Watch3 also come in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black (in addition to Mystic White for Buds Live and Mystic Silver for Galaxy Watch3) for a sleek ecosystem look and seamless experience.

Featuring a new form factor that not only functions well but creates a bold fashion statement, Galaxy Buds Live further highlight Samsung’s commitment to innovation. With sound by AKG, three microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit, Galaxy Buds Live helps ensure voices come through loud and clear on the phone. They also feature Active Noise Cancellation—great for tuning out distractions in an age where working from home is prevalent.

Consider Galaxy Watch3 your next-generation companion to help you manage your routine, reach your fitness goals and prioritize your wellness. You can access your own personal “fitness studio” with Samsung Health and even send automatic replies to incoming messages, all on your Samsung Galaxy Watch3.

Maximum Viewing

Ample screen real estate continues to be a sought-after smartphone feature, and with a 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen4, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G has got you covered—check your email or stream a show without having to unfold the device every time. If, however, you prefer to expand beyond that, you can unfold the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G to access its 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED Main Screen5, complete with a notch-less Front Camera, minimal bezels, and a 120Hz6 refresh rate for smooth scrolling and entertainment.  Samsung Ultra-Thin Glass is now also included on the Main Screen, delivering a more luxurious feel with rich colours and less blue light for a more comfortable experience. 

Switching between folded modes is seamless thanks to the app continuity feature7, lending to the overall premium viewing experience. You can simultaneously open up to two apps on the Cover Screen, then unfold the device to see them appear even bigger on the main screen with optimized UI.

The best part? Not only does the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G provide a cinematic experience that fits right in your pocket, the intelligent display detects what you’re doing and shifts the refresh rate.  This not only helps maximize the smartphone’s 4,500mAh (typical) battery8, but also provides the best view for your content. With the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, you can feel confident when working or streaming your favourite content, even when you don’t have an outlet nearby.

Enhanced Productivity

Of course, a device that aims to do it all needs to ensure a seamless experience. Take multitasking to new levels with the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G and its Multi-Active Window9 which grants you the ability to navigate, drag and drop, and work across three apps simultaneously.

This means you can be video chatting in one application while simultaneously taking notes in another. Opening and closing multiple apps for a single task will be a thing of the past! Galaxy Z Fold2 5G also considers intuitive user behaviour: you can customize your UI on the Main Screen to best suit your needs. 

In addition, with the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, you will also be able to access hyperfast connection speeds thanks to 5G10 compatibility — a consideration for those looking forward to taking advantage of the latest in network technology.

Endless Entertainment 

When the office hours end, the entertainment begins! Increasingly, we’ve begun to rely on our smartphones for needs that extend beyond work. Transitioning between work and play is now easy to do in one device thanks to Flex Mode11 which allows you to consume your favourite shows comfortably hands-free. You can fold Galaxy Z Fold2 5G at different angles12 to watch various formats and make video calls with friends and family without needing a separate stand or accessory.

Translation: you’ll have a hands-free experience and not have to worry about propping up your phone – you can focus more on watching that new movie or taking in a virtual fitness class. With the Wireless DeX feature, you can multiply your screens by using your Samsung TV as a second display for a cable-free setup that further amplifies your work or play experience.

Content Capture

Entertainment and the ability to work efficiently are critical pillars of a leading smartphone. One could argue, however, that a device’s ability to create content is one of its most important functions. Enter: the camera. With the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, a whopping five cameras are built in (two 10MP selfie cameras and a 12MP Ultra Wide, Wide-angle, and Telephoto triple camera system on the rear) to offer the very best in control and quality. The Pro Video mode, Single Take, Bright Night, and Night Mode features allow users to bring their memories to life while Dual Preview uses both the Main and Cover Screens so both parties can see what’s being captured.

Additionally, Capture View Mode on the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G lets you review up to five of your most recent captures on the bottom half of the Main Screen without ever leaving the Camera app and Auto framing13 lets you record hands-free video in perfect focus even when the subject moves.

Use Flex Mode14 on the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G for hands-free photos and videos. This is a new way to experience select apps15 by using both halves of the large display to chat, record, browse, edit and more.

Final Thoughts

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a powerful device suited to the needs of high-performance individuals who demand the most from their devices. Think of it as your trusted companion; a reliable assistant that can help with work and life for the person who wants to achieve it all, right now. 

With the addition of 5G connectivity16, the device is not only a game changer in its category and industry but a beautiful masterpiece that showcases what happens when technology, innovation, and design come together.
