Expand your productivity and get business done with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 – Samsung Newsroom Canada

Today’s employers are facing a whole new reality of work, one that prioritizes flexibility, agility and that enables employees to get work done from any location. At Samsung Canada, we strive to ensure that businesses are equipped with the tools they need to take productivity to the next level. Our next generation of foldable devices, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4, have been built to do just that – they are equipped with innovative features that make it easy for workers to get through their daily checklists.

Hear more from Paul Edwards, VP of Enterprise Mobility at Samsung Canada, on how the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 are helping business owners and employees work more efficiently in today’s changing climate.

Q: Tell us about the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4. What makes them ideal productivity devices?

PE: When we designed the latest foldables, we wanted to make sure they delivered maximum value on several fronts, both personal and professional. The marquee feature of the Galaxy Z Fold4 is its foldable screen that stands on its own so users can video conference hands free or jot down notes with the optional S Pen[1]. When unfolded, users benefit from a 7.6-inch expansive screen, letting them view a spreadsheet, contract, or creative mock-up in greater detail. Lastly, the multi-active window with taskbar feature lets users quickly launch up to three apps, side by side, plus, drag and drop content from one window to the other – making it easier for a user to work remotely from their mobile device.

With the Galaxy Z Flip4, we really leaned into the idea that work doesn’t stop when you’re away from the office. The informative Cover Screen provides compact connectivity, allowing professionals to answer or make calls, view notifications and respond to texts even when the phone is folded shut. Workers can also use Flex Mode[2] on their Galaxy Flip4 to flex the phone, set it down and run conference calls hands-free from virtually anywhere.

Q: How do the latest Galaxy foldables help employees complete tasks and work with apps that are traditionally accessed on a laptop?

PE: The latest Galaxy foldables are optimized to support Microsoft Office, making it easier to create and edit documents on the go without having to power up a laptop. Our optimized Office experience means that popular Office apps, like Word, Excel and PowerPoint, can be used the same way they would be used on a laptop. That means everyone has access to important files, regardless of their location. We know that work is no longer confined to a desk, so Microsoft integration ensures always-on access to OneDrive and Teams, whether you’re in the office, working from home or between appointments.

If professionals do find themselves in a situation where a laptop is needed, we came up with a solution just for that. Samsung DeX on the Galaxy Z Fold4 lets them connect their device wirelessly to a monitor or a TV, pair a keyboard and mouse, and get to work in an intuitive PC-like environment. Whether they’re finalizing a sales contract or presenting a pitch to clients, the Galaxy Z Fold4 and DeX provides professionals with the convenience and familiarity of a desktop-like experience.

Q: What would you tell employers who are uncomfortable with so much work being conducted from a smartphone?

PE: The Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4 are both equipped with built-in defense grade security that helps protect both business and personal data stored on the device from the chip up. This feature is called Knox Security, and when combined with Knox Vault, which protects passwords and biometrics information, it helps to ensure that sensitive data stays secure.

The durability of devices is another important consideration for businesses with employees working remotely. Both the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 have built in water and scratch resistance[3], so regardless of what someone’s workday might look like, their devices can be used with confidence. Both devices also come with an all-day battery and super-fast charging[4]so more time can be spent taking care of important business matters versus trying to preserve the device’s battery life.

Q: Nowadays, with everything being remote, why is it important for professionals to carry devices that work together?

PE: When your devices work together, you work smarter. The Galaxy ecosystem was built to meet the need of a seamless connection between all of the average workers’ devices, which include earbuds, smartphone, tablet, laptop and others. The Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 sync effortlessly with the Galaxy Book laptop series so workers can share files to their PC in just a few taps. When the Galaxy Z Flip4 or Fold4 and laptop are paired with the new Galaxy Buds2 Pro, the auto-switch feature is activated so your audio source is automatically switched from your phone to the laptop, or vice versa, if you’re moving between a phone or video call. There’s not a lot you can’t accomplish when all your Galaxy devices are working together.
