Flex your Galaxy Z Fold2 5G for a new way to take photos

Capturing pictures and videos is easy and enjoyable on your new Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. Flex Mode allows you to use the Camera app on both the front and main screens to capture selfies, take videos, and view your Gallery. You can also use Auto Framing to keep things in focus when you’re filming your friends or family. Plus, the Camera app can be used in Landscape and Portrait modes on both screens for added convenience.

Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for Galaxy Z Fold2 5G sold in other countries. The hinge hardware supports Flex mode at angles between 75° and 115°. For your convenience, Flex mode can also be set to activate before or after 75° and 115°. It may be difficult to maintain Flex mode while moving due to shaking or other movement. It is recommended to keep the phone stationary while in Flex mode.

Take photos in Flex Mode

The Camera app is great on its own, but you can do even more with photos when your Z Fold2 is partially folded in Flex Mode. The main screen will divide into sections for the viewfinder and Gallery. You can also enable Flex Mode without folding your device.

1 From the main screen, navigate to and open the Camera app.
2 Then, begin folding your device. The screen will split between the camera’s viewfinder and the Gallery preview. You can swap the viewfinder and Gallery locations by double tapping the empty space above the Camera controls.
3 To take a picture, tap PHOTO, and then line up the viewfinder. Tap Capture.

7 Lastly, tap the icon in the top left corner to use the front screen as a viewfinder. This can be turned on or off.
Take a selfie on the front screen

You can take a great selfie using the front screen on your Z Fold2. With the camera's selfie option, the screen will help frame your face so you end up with a clear photo.

1 From the front screen, navigate to and open the Camera app. Then, tap SELFIE in the top right corner.
2 Unfold your device completely and then line up the rear camera lens until you’re in focus on the front screen.

1 From the front or main screen, navigate to and open the Camera app.
2 Tap VIDEO, and then tap the Auto Framing icon in the bottom right of the viewfinder (it looks like a circle with a dot in the center).
