Top Experience with Massive Screen and Refined Craftsmanship

 

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G comes with an upgraded screen and enhanced hinge design, providing users with unparalleled viewing and entertainment experience to enjoy more quality leisure time. 

 

- Cinematic Huge Display Brings Ultimate Enjoyment[1]:

 

The Cover Screen and Main Screen of the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G both feature minimized bezels to create more viewing spaces for a better watching experience. When folded, the 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen provides maximum usability so that users can check email, browse websites, or look up directions. Utilize App Continuity to enable expanded usability, crossing the boundary between the Cover and Main Screen.

 

When unfolded, the massive 7.6-inch Main Screen features Dynamic AMOLED 2x Infinity-O Display, which allows users to enjoy movies or games. The higher brightness of the display creates a more immersive experience especially when watching movies. The 120Hz adaptable refresh rate enables smooth controls and lets users enjoy the gameplay.

 

High-Dynamic dual speakers of the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G offers improved sound balance and enhanced bass. Users can also share music with a friend by playing synced audio on two sets of Galaxy Buds, without compromising sound quality.

 

 - Enhanced Hinge Design for A Better User Experience:

 

The display as well as the hinge of the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G are re-engineered with a sleek, unified design that delivers an elegant and stylish feel. The thinner frame also creates a better grip. The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G adopts the more powerful Samsung Ultra Thin Glass, providing a more premium and refined feel for the display. Its design is anchored by the Hideaway Hinge, which fits seamlessly into the device body with the CAM mechanism and enables freestanding capabilities[2] that power all new Flex mode experiences. Whether you fold or unfold, the movement is smoother than ever. Users can take photos and make video calls with Flex mode, and unlock more practical usage.

 

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G features a third-generation refined design, within the gap between the body and hinge housing to repel dust and undesirable particles. The Gorilla Glass Victus on the Cover Screen provides the device with strong protection and enhanced durability to use with confidence. 

 

Multi-Tasking Performance of Tablets and Mobile Phones

 

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a smart mobile device that combines the functions of a tablet as well as a mobile phone. Equipped with a 7.6-inch massive display and a unique UI design like a tablet, users can freely choose the control or layout to satisfy different needs.

 

 - Upgraded Multi Active Window Increases Productivity:

 

Open Multiple Apps simultaneously: When unfolded, users can open multiple apps at the same time[3] and adjust the layout as they like, including one large window, two small windows and pop-up windows. For example, the large window can be used for video conferencing and the two small windows for checking emails and real-time financial market; the calculator can also be used in the pop-up window for multi-tasking and higher productivity.

 

Open Multiple Files from the Same App: Users can now open multiple files from the same app at the same time and view them side by side[4]. For example, open two internet browsers, and have two different web pages open side by side to check the latest news published online at any time.

 

Quick Access to the Apps: With the integration of App Pair and the Edge Panel to enjoy added convenience, users can link two to three frequently used apps together. Selected apps can be opened with a simple tap, providing a more convenient and quicker experience.

 

Drag and Drop between Different Apps: Use the advanced Multi-Active Window to transfer text, images and documents from one app to another. With drag and drop[5], users can easily copy content on the webpage and paste to notes. Quickly screen capture in one app and seamlessly transfer the captured image into another with Split Screen Capture. For example, you can capture a webpage and discuss with friends for easier communication or work.

 

 - Flexible Layout Provides PC-Like Experience: Users who often work outdoors long for smart devices to use for mobile working and daily needs. The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G enables users to switch layouts between a large screen layout and traditional phone layout[6] quickly and easily. Users can choose the most optimized UI on the Main Screen to suit their working or daily needs. When checking Microsoft Outlook emails on the way, adopt a simpler mobile layout; and when browsing webpages, choose the large screen layout to switch between different tabs faster. Draft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets or PowerPoint presentations with PC-like toolbar arrangements, to edit reports faster with higher efficiency and enjoy a comprehensive tablet experience.

 

More Practical Flex Mode and Seamless App Continuity

 

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G’s screens and hinge are sophisticatedly re-designed. Inheriting the classic Flex mode[7] and App Continuity[8], it also comes with higher flexibility and more features, allowing users to fully utilize the foldable features to enjoy or create their favorite content,

 

- Flex Mode Unlocks Unlimited Creativity: When half-folded, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G activates Flex mode and splits the display into two parts, allowing a unique experience. When shooting while half-folded with Capture View Mode[9], you can clearly see the photo or video you just took or review up to five of the most recent captures on the bottom half of the Main Screen, and the preview of the next shot will be on the top half. Users won’t have to leave the Camera app to save time. Take your creativity one-step further with Auto Framing[10]. Whether teaching gym or dancing, the Galaxy Z Fold2 can record hands-free video and keep the subject in focus even when it moves. Even when staying at home alone, users can record creative content and share on social media platforms.

 

 - Dual Preview for Perfect Shots: When taking portraits, use the Main and Cover Screen at the same time with Dual Preview, so that both parties can see what is being captured to adjust to the best angle and capture the perfect moment. What’s more, when hanging out with friends, take a high-quality selfie with the rear cameras with the Cover Screen acting as the viewfinder.

 

 - Multiple Cameras for the Amazing Moment: The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G has a triple rear camera, a 12MP ultra wide Camera, a 12MP wide-angle Camera and a 12MP telephoto camera, as well as 10MP senile cover camera and front camera. With more flagship features including Pro Video mode[11], Single Take[12], Bright Night[13] and Night Mode, users can leverage the unique function of the foldable phone and record wonderful moments with high-quality photos.

 

Flagship-Level Powerful Performance

 

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G supports 5G connectivity[14]and Snapdragon 865+ for higher speed and greater performance. Users can enjoy more high-quality content and increase productivity with ultra-fast network, high-efficiency performance, large screen and unique foldable experience. The 4,500mAh All Day Battery[15], 25W Wired Fast Charging[16] or 11W Wireless Fast Charging means users can do more without worrying about battery life. The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G also offers Samsung DeX wireless connection[17] to sync the display to TVs or other larger monitors. The UWB (Ultra Wide Band) technology is integrated into the device making it quick and easy to share files, photos or videos with Nearby Share, so that users can enjoy a more convenient mobile experience.

 

Galaxy Z Fold2 Thom Browne Edition

 

Following the success of the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition, Samsung and Thom Browne continue their collaboration to deliver a unique vision of innovative technology and refined design with the Galaxy Z Fold2 Thom Browne Edition. The release further combines the iconic gray geometries and color stripe of Thom Browne to introduce a grosgrain pattern to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, and further mixed with the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G’s leading features. Software additions, including a new lock screen and exclusive photo filter, digitize the Thom Browne world and bring a sense of luxury into every interaction. The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is not only a leading smart mobile device, but also an indispensable fashion accessory for trend setters who pursue unique personal styles, bringing an extraordinary mobile experience.
