The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is the third generation of foldable device from Samsung, combining a stunning and bold design with refined innovations to push the boundaries of mobile experiences

 

Samsung Electronics Canada today unveiled the next generation of its category-defining foldable devices, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. Packed with enhanced refinements[1] and meaningful innovations, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G delivers new, premium foldable experiences for those who enjoy being on the cutting edge of technology. With a larger Cover Screen1 and massive Main Screen, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G combines solid design and expert craftsmanship with intuitive new features for a unique mobile experience that offers the versatility that everyday life demands.

 

“Our journey towards the next generation of mobile devices is full of originality and innovation,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, we closely listened to user feedback to ensure we were bringing meaningful improvements to the hardware, while also developing new innovations to enhance the user experience. Further strengthened by our industry-leading partnerships with Google and Microsoft, we’re reshaping and redefining the possibilities of the mobile device experience.”

 

New Refined Design

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G pairs bold, premium design with advanced engineering so you can feel confident using it every day.

 

  • Complete and Immersive Content Experiences – A 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen[2] provides maximum usability so you can check email, look up directions, or even watch your favourite content without needing to unfold your device every time. When unfolded, the massive 7.6-inch Main Screen[3], with minimal bezels and notch-less Front Camera, immerses you with a 120Hz adaptable refresh rate for smooth scrolling and gameplay. To complete this premium viewing experience, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G comes with the best dynamic sound available on a Galaxy device to date, with enhanced stereo effect and clearer sound1 provided by high-dynamic dual speakers.
  • Solid Design and Expert Craftsmanship The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is engineered with a sleek, unified design that delivers a smooth, high-end feel. Samsung Ultra Thin Glass is now also on the Main Screen, providing a more premium and refined feel for the display1. Its design is anchored by the Hideaway Hinge, which fits seamlessly into the device body with the CAM mechanism and enables free-standing capabilities[4] that power all new Flex mode[5] experiences. Galaxy Z Fold2 5G also employs sweeper technology – first introduced on the Galaxy Z Flip, this innovation works within the gap between the body and hinge housing to help repel dust and undesirable particles. As Galaxy Z Fold2 5G features a third-generation refined foldable design, the space for the sweeper structure is even smaller than on the Galaxy Z Flip. To achieve this, Samsung developed new innovative sweeper technology to help achieve the same level of protection in a smaller space – making for a slimmer1 form when the device is closed.
  • Customizable to Match Your Style – For those looking to stand out, Samsung is offering an online tool to customize your Galaxy Z Fold2 with four distinct Hideaway Hinge colors – Metallic Silver, Metallic Gold, Metallic Red, and Metallic Blue. Now you can create the Galaxy Z Fold2 that complements your unique style, adding a personalized touch to premium design[6].

 

Capture and View How You Want

The innovative foldable form and its sophisticated design are taken to the next level with the unique mobile experience of the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G pairs Flex mode5 with App Continuity[7] to provide expanded usability1, transitioning between the Cover and Main Screen. This flexibility helps enable you to create or view curated content, from folded to unfolded.

 

  • A Flexible and Productive Device– With Flex mode5, it’s now easy to capture content and review in real time. With Capture View Mode[8], you won’t have to leave the Camera app – you can clearly view the photo or video you just took, or review up to five of your most recent captures on the bottom half of the Main Screen, and the preview of your next shot will be on the top half. Or take your creativity one step further with Auto framing[9]. Whether you’re jumping in on the latest social dance challenge or showing off your cooking skills, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G can record hands-free video and keeps the subject in focus even when it moves.
  • Features to Support Creativity – Rethink content capture by incorporating both the photographer and subject’s perspective into getting the shot. Using the Main and Cover Screen at the same time with Dual Preview, both parties can see what’s being captured. What’s more, thanks to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G’s Flex mode, take a high-quality selfie with the rear cameras with the Cover Screen acting as the viewfinder.
  • Flagship Camera Features – Delivering on the premium capture experience Canadians have come to expect from Samsung, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G also offers premium camera quality and control thanks to an innovative five camera system. With two 10MP selfie cameras and a rear triple camera system that includes 12MP Ultra Wide, Wide-angle and Telephoto lenses, you can take advantage of flagship features like Pro Video mode[10], Single Take[11], Bright Night[12] and Night Mode to help you capture the moment in stunning quality.

 

Maximize Every Moment

The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G aligns next generation mobile productivity with advanced multitasking capabilities, thanks to new intuitive ways to interact. Get the most out of your day by tailoring the app display on Galaxy Z Fold2 5G’s tablet-sized Main Screen3 to fit with your working style.

 

  • Seamless Multitasking – Enjoy enhanced productivity with advanced Multi-Active Window[13] to control your screen layout with ease and flexibility. Open multiple files from the same app at the same time and view them side by side[14]. With an improved Multi-Window Tray1, you can open up to three apps at once with the integration of App Pair[15] and the Edge Panel to enjoy added convenience. With drag and drop[16], you can simply drag text, images and documents from one app to another for quick transfer. Or screen capture in one app and transfer the captured image into another seamlessly with Split Screen Capture[17].
  • Optimized App Interactions to Support Your Flow – Elevate your premium foldable experience by choosing an optimized UI on the Main Screen to suit your needs. Quickly and easily switch layouts between a large screen layout or traditional phone layout in the Settings[18].
  • Optimized App Display– Upgrade the viewing experience of your favourite apps, including Gmail, YouTube and Spotify. Use the Main Screen with Office apps in Microsoft 365 to mimic the tablet experience. For example, using Microsoft Outlook you can view your inbox on the left side and at the same time, draft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets or PowerPoint presentations with a PC-like toolbar arrangements.

 

Galaxy Leadership Strengthened by Strategic Partnerships

Samsung has an open and collaborative approach to partnerships. Through a long-standing partnership with Google, Samsung has established an open ecosystem for foldable devices to foster foldable UX innovations. Furthermore, a trusted partnership with Microsoft, combined with the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G’s advanced hardware and large screen3 experience, helps users to maximize their productivity in mobile environments.

 

Building on its longstanding legacy of Galaxy leadership, Samsung once again pushes the boundaries of mobile innovation and engineering. With the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, users can access hyper-fast speeds thanks to its full 5G[19] band compatibility, while the 4,500mAh All Day Battery[20] and Super Fast Charging[21] mean you can boost your battery, so you can move to the next thing on your to-do list. Galaxy Z Fold2 5G also offers Samsung DeX wireless connection[22] for productivity with less clutter and fewer wires, while UWB (Ultra Wide Band) technology is integrated into the device making it quick and easy to share files, photos or videos with Nearby Share.[23]
