More than ever people are relying on just a single digital gadget to conduct all their activities, from work to leisure.

Therefore, a lot of brands have recognized that convenient and comfortable device design matters a lot for users’ daily lives. These brands have been incorporating user feedback to enhance both the design and the utility of their products.

As part of this trend, the world’s leading mobile phone maker, Samsung Electronics, has launched the next generation of its category-defining foldable device: the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2. The gadget brings together design and utility through refinements and meaningful user experience-based (UX) innovation. The gadget is dedicated to users who enjoy being on the cutting edge of technology.

It distinguishes itself with a larger cover screen and massive main screen, combining solid design and expert craftsmanship with intuitive new features for a unique mobile experience offering just the versatility that modern users need in their daily life.

“Our journey toward the next generation of mobile devices is full of originality and innovation,” Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Business President T.M. Roh said.

According to Samsung Electronics Advanced Mechanical Research and Development Group member Hwang Seung-hyun, the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 distinguishes itself from its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, by a more flexible folding mode, thanks its enhanced dual-CAM mechanism.

“With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, we have closely listened to users’ feedback to ensure we were bringing meaningful improvements to the hardware, while also developing new innovation to enhance user experience,” Roh continued, adding that the UX innovation had been powered by the brand’s partnerships with Google and Microsoft.

The enhanced mechanism, according to Hwang, also prevents the device from accidentally folding upon use. The more sophisticated design is incorporated into the smartphone’s sleek design.

He said that the stable folding experience enabled by the enhanced structure had garnered positive customer feedback.

The new device’s advanced engineering will also bolster your productivity day after day.

For instance, its 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen affords maximum usability, so you can check your email, look up directions or even watch your favorite content without needing to unfold your device every time.

When unfolded, the massive 7.6-inch Main Screen, with minimized bezel and notch-less Front Camera immerses you with a 120-Hz adaptable refresh rate for smooth scrolling and gameplay. The device’s dynamic sound, meanwhile, is the best of its kind across all Samsung Galaxy devices to date, with enhanced stereo effect and clearer sound provided by high-dynamic dual speakers.

The device’s sleek design, meanwhile, is anchored by its Hideaway Hinge, fitting seamlessly into the device body. Its CAM mechanism enables free-standing capabilities, powering users’ Flex mode experiences.

The new device also employs sweeper technology, having introduced it on the Galaxy Z Flip. The technology repels dust and undesirable particles within the gap between the body and hinge housing of the device.

Users who want to have their own unique device-using style can also customize the Galaxy Z Fold2 with four distinct Hideaway Hinge colors: metallic silver, metallic gold, metallic red and metallic blue. This way, you can stand out with your device.

The innovative foldable form and its sophisticated design also allow you to expand your usability, crossing the boundary between the device’s cover and main screen. This allows you to create or view content that is curated to your very own preferences, from folded to unfolded.

Catering to the needs of modern urbanites, the new cell phone also aligns mobile productivity with advanced multitasking capabilities thanks to its new intuitive ways to interact.

Get the most out of your day by tailoring the Galaxy Z Fold2’s tablet-sized main screen to fit in with your working style.

For seamless multitasking, use the advanced multi-active window to control your screen layout with greater ease and flexibility. Experience more productivity now that you can open multiple files from the same app at the same time and view them side by side.

With an improved Multi-Window Tray, you can open multiple apps at once with the integration of App Pair and the Edge Panel to enjoy added convenience. Use the drag-and-drop function to simply drag text, images and documents from one app and transfer the captured image into another seamlessly with Split Screen Capture.

The device also has optimized app interactions to further support your workflow. Choose the most optimized UI on the Main Screen to suit your needs. Quickly and easily switch between a large screen layout or traditional phone layout in the Settings.

Also, maximize every moment in your daily life and upgrade the viewing experience of your favorite apps, including Gmail, YouTube and Spotify, by benefiting from the new device’s optimized app display. Use the Main Screen with Office apps in Microsoft 365 to mimic the tablet experience.

For instance, use Microsoft Outlook to its true potential by viewing your inbox on the left side with current conversations at the same time. Draft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets or PowerPoint presentations with PC-like toolbar arrangements.
