Samsung Unfolds the Future in Hayls World: Here’s Why SA’s Top Tech YouTuber Is Excited About The Galaxy Z Fold3 5GShare open/close
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 20 October 2021 – As soon as Hayleigh Chamberlain, the number #1 Top Tech YouTuber in South Africa, got her hands on the newly launched Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, she took to her immensely popular YouTube Channel to share her reasons why the future is foldable. She was visibly excited to discuss Samsung’s most powerful foldable yet, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, which opens up a new world of mobile productivity, giving you greater flexibility and more space to get work done. This is after all, much more than just a phone; it’s a smartphone, tablet and PC all in one, designed to make multitasking easy and seamless at work, at home and everywhere else where technology empowers us to do more.
“It’s absolutely amazing using the S Pen on such a big screen”
Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is the first Samsung foldable compatible with the S Pen such as the new models, the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro, designed specifically for the foldable screen. Hayleigh was impressed with the many new ‘cool ways to use it’ including the way it easily converts writing to text and allows greater freedom to draw on its large screen. Users who know and love this advanced stylus for note taking, annotating, editing and many other productivity tricks can take advantage of the wider, edge-to-edge display by purchasing a new S Pen Fold Edition or S Pen Pro for their Galaxy Z Fold3 5G.
“Now you can PRO-selfie”
Hayleigh enjoyed the versatile under display camera that blends in with the massive display. She loved the way the you can switch between the front display camera to a large screen camera on the inside, that even includes yet another “cool feature” she was impressed with – the view finder – so the person you’re taking a picture of can clearly see and adapt to the picture, as they see themselves on the front screen. Additionally, making full use of the 7.6-inch interior display, Capture View allows you to view your latest photos on the left panel as you frame your next shot on the right. On the back of the device, you get a three-lens camera system including an ultra-wide angle lens so you can capture incredible shots of any subject. Hayleigh also highlighted the fact that you can open the device into Flex mode and place it on a surface so it functions as a smooth, smart tripod, armed with the tools you need so you can ‘jump in front of the camera and do your thing’. She also loved that you could easily use this Flex mode to watch YouTube videos on the top half of the screen while searching for new content or typing on the bottom screen. When you flex the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, it stands upright on its own so you can also join a videoconference and chat hands-free on your desk. Hayleigh also demonstrated flex ‘in reverse’ where you can watch a video on the front screen by folding it into tent mode – another versatile feature people will be attracted to.
“Multitask even further!”
Hayleigh emphasised the many ways the new generation of Fold has been optimised for apps we love and the simple ways to adapt your most used apps to this new form factor. This includes giving popular apps such as Instagram or Spotify a fresh, dynamic layout that amplifies what you can do with them. Foldable-optimised apps simplify the user experience even further. Microsoft has given your favourite Office tools a thoughtful update so you can edit, review and share documents on mobile like never before. Additionally, located on the right side of the screen in tablet mode, the Edge Panel is a home base for quickly accessing your most-used apps without disrupting your work. This toolbar is easily customisable.
Hayleigh completed her review by emphasising additional features other experts have also been impressed with, including the device’s durability, incredible water resistance* and 120HZ refresh rate. She concluded by highlighting its seamless integration with Samsung DeX, which extends your already impressive mobile options into a desktop experience.
