Foldable devices are opening up a new world of mobile productivity, giving you greater flexibility and more space to get work done. Announced at the August 11 Unpacked event, Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is Samsung's most powerful foldable yet.
It's not 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 in between. With Galaxy Z Fold3, entrepreneurs and business leaders can carry less and do more.
Here are 10 reasons to make the Galaxy Z Fold3 your next mobile device for business:
1. Double the screen space
Smartphone screens have gotten bigger over the last few years, but they've reached a limit. Foldables are the only form factor that gets more screen from a pocket-sized mobile device. Galaxy Z Fold3 starts as a sleek smartphone, ready for simple work tasks that only call for a glance and a few taps. It then unfolds to a 7.6-inch, 120Hz display in landscape mode, providing an expansive workspace so you can read, create, focus and get more work done. With the first ever under-display camera, you get an uninterrupted screen from edge to edge.
2. Work across multiple windows
Galaxy Z Fold3 is made for multitasking. Its user interface is tailored for the screen, allowing you to work across up to three windows at once. Foldable-optimized apps simplify the user experience even further.
Microsoft has given your favorite Office tools a thoughtful update so you can edit, review and share documents on mobile like never before. With the larger screen, you can quickly access the traditional Office ribbon menus in PowerPoint, Excel and Word to format and edit documents. In Outlook, you can preview emails in a separate panel as you scan your inbox Using Multi-Active Window on the Galaxy Z Fold3, users don't have to toggle between apps. You can participate in videoconferences while checking messages and confirming availabilities on your calendar. Or you can review an Excel while you run numbers with the calculator and play music from your favorite streaming service — simultaneously.
3. Launch apps fast
We all have our own ways of working productively. 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 customizable, and when you find yourself frequently using the same apps together in Multi-Active Windows, you can save a pairing to the Edge Panel and launch your customized multitasking suite with just one tap. All of the apps in your pairing will open instantly — either refreshed or where you last left off, based on your settings.
4. Drag and drop
In many ways, mobile productivity is about combining the convenience of a mobile device with the capabilities of a computer. Drag and drop functionality gives Galaxy Z Fold3 that extra bit of efficiency that makes all the difference when you're immersed in work. Move images and text to and from emails, documents and presentations with a single motion — and no wasted time. For instance, you can drag an image from an email into a PowerPoint presentation as you're preparing for an important meeting, or drag a paragraph from Word into a text message, without needing to copy and paste.
5. Hello, S Pen
Galaxy Z Fold3 is the first Samsung foldable compatible with the S Pen, now with new models — the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro — designed specifically for the foldable 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 Z Fold3. With capabilities as varied as converting handwriting to text, translating between multiple languages and using Smart Select to grab images and extract text, the S Pen lets users make the most of their mobile work suite. The S Pen Pro adds Bluetooth connectivity so you can use it as a remote control, particularly helpful for presentations.
6. Hands-free videoconferencing
When you flex Galaxy Z Fold3, it stands upright on its own. Join a videoconference and you can chat hands-free with Galaxy Z Fold3 on your desk. Flex Mode videoconferencing is a major plus for business owners on the go. Whether you're at the airport, in a hotel lobby or at a cafe, you have a device that stays standing for face-to-face meetings from afar. Meanwhile, you can use the bottom portion of the screen to take notes or view up to two other apps at the same time, without interrupting your call.
7. Next-level camera
Galaxy Z Fold3 delivers an impressive camera system with some innovative new features. 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. You can also activate the cover screen preview to let your subjects see themselves in real time as you snap away.
Galaxy Z Fold3 is equipped with a front-facing camera on the cover screen, as well as the nearly invisible under-display camera when you're in tablet mode. 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.
8. Go from tablet to PC
Galaxy Z Fold3 has the computing power of a PC — and can virtually transform into one using Samsung DeX, which extends your mobile device into a desktop experience. By connecting your Galaxy Z Fold3 to a larger monitor, you can work seamlessly in a PC-like environment while your phone remains free for other uses. You can run DeX wirelessly on any Miracast-enabled display, including Samsung's new Smart Monitor. If you don't have a Miracast display, you can connect your Galaxy Z Fold3 to your monitor via an HDMI to USB-C cable. Use Z Fold3 as a trackpad, or free up the device for calls, texts and multitasking by connecting a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Galaxy Z Fold3 with DeX is the ideal solution for hotdesking and the hybrid workplace.
9. Run your business at full speed
Business today is full speed ahead, and so is Galaxy Z Fold3. Download files in seconds, send emails in a flash and conduct video chats with virtually zero lag using 5G connectivity capable of tapping both Sub-6 and mmWave spectrum bands. Alongside the need for speed, it's equally important to stay in charge rather than stuck to your charger. Z Fold3 has all-day battery power and 25W Super Fast Charging, so you can go fast and far without any technology constraints in your way.
10. Defense-grade security
Samsung knows how important data security is when it comes to your business. That's why Galaxy Z Fold3 comes with Samsung's defense-grade Knox security and Knox Vault security solutions built into the device from the chip up. For added security, Z Fold3 also features biometric security options like facial recognition and fingerprint scanning for convenient, yet controlled unlocking of the device, as well as Secure Folder to separate personal apps and content.
From phone to tablet to PC, Galaxy Z Fold3 is a three-in-one powerhouse that will change the way you work. Upgrade to Z Fold3 to multiply your productivity and be an early adopter of the foldable form factor that's making mobile work more flexible than ever.
