Why a foldable phone is perfect for empowering your team

Drew Jackson


In 2022, workplace mobility is at an all-time high, with businesses of all types and sizes learning to operate and excel in remote and hybrid work environments. In fact, a recent poll of our small business community found that just 25 percent have returned to the office five days a week.

The pandemic has provided organizations an opportunity to reset their vision for the workplace of the future. Employees want greater flexibility, and employers want effective collaboration and productivity. In combination with cloud-based apps, mobile devices — and more specifically, foldable mobile devices — are making a successful hybrid workplace more attainable by providing a workspace you can open and close on the go with just a quick flip or fold.

Mobile technology has played a serious role in the way we work for more than a decade, and there’s no reason it should slow down. But enterprise IT decision-makers and SMB leaders alike have to ask themselves: How do we take the next step in creating the most productive, efficient mobile workforce yet?

We launched our first foldable device back in 2019 and have seen increased adoption with each generation since, as we refined both the hardware and the user experience. A recent survey conducted with Oxford Economics as part of our Maximizing Mobile Value study found that 65 percent of businesses are planning to equip their team with foldables within the next four years. It’s clear that new mobile strategies are, well, unfolding.

Mobile under the microscope

Before COVID-19, businesses could plod along with technology good enough to get the job done. But when the pandemic hit, the need to give workers greater mobility was accelerated by force. We quickly needed to replace the office, by outfitting ourselves and our teams with the right technology. All of this happened seemingly overnight, and the need to take phone calls, check emails and complete work tasks away from our usual offices every day put our mobile devices’ capabilities under a microscope.

Mobility and flexibility

The crux of today’s workplace discussions is drastically different than it was two-and-half years ago. Our routines have changed for good. Work now means taking video calls, editing documents, collaborating, communicating and accessing everything we need to be productive from wherever we may be. And often, we have to do it all at the same time.

Multitasking like that requires a device that’s portable yet powerful, compact without compromise. That’s where the Galaxy Z Flip3 comes into play — literally. The Z Flip3 has the cool factor, bringing the functionality of Samsung’s smartphones into a pocket-sized powerhouse. When the device is folded shut, a 1.9-inch notification screen keeps you up to speed with the information you need. Inside, the Z Flip3 offers Multi-Active Windows so users can work — or play — in two separate apps at once. Or, stand up the device in Flex Mode for hands-free videoconferencing. It’s a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) option employees actually want.

Remember, it’s not just business leaders who can maximize productivity with foldables. Employees and teams can tap into those two crucial factors — mobility and flexibility — with less friction and more fluidity on a foldable device. At Samsung, we’re fully committed to helping our business customers and their employees become more mobile and more flexible with uniquely innovative options.

Device consolidation for the hybrid workplace

Workers are consumers first, so what begins to take hold in our personal lives often becomes a staple in the business world; our work and personal lives intertwine. Everything that makes a foldable appealing to a consumer — the versatility, the functionality, the continuity — also makes it dynamic for a business user.

In the hybrid workplace, toggling between disparate devices interrupts flow and hampers productivity. It’s difficult for anyone to focus when they’re frequently logging in and out, downloading documents and breaking stride to switch devices. If you could consolidate your three most used platforms — smartphone, tablet and PC — into one device, you would instantly improve your efficiency.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold3 is that device. Folded shut, it’s a smartphone. Opened in Flex Mode or flat, it expands into a tablet. And connected to a monitor or display using Samsung DeX, it becomes a PC. DeX lets you turn your mobile device into a desktop computer by connecting wirelessly to a monitor. It’s your office, folded in your pocket.

The Z Fold3 is also Samsung’s first foldable device compatible with the S Pen, allowing you to navigate with precision while doing daily tasks. The Z Fold3 stands up for hands-free videoconferencing, and thanks to the Multi-Active Window feature, you can work in up to three apps simultaneously, letting you build a PowerPoint while taking notes on your video call, as just one example. The 7.6-inch workspace gives you more than enough landscape to get your job done where you want, how you want.

Device consolidation with mobile-powered desktop computing like DeX is music to your IT team’s ears. Fewer devices to secure and manage means fewer access points for cyber threats. Samsung’s foldables also have the defense-grade Knox security platform built in, to keep your business just that — your business.

Whether you’re a small business owner, a startup entrepreneur or a power worker who’s always on the go, the Galaxy Z Fold3 combines power and speed in the palm of your hand, to change the way you get work done.

Early technology adoption drives employee experience

Organizations that adopt new technology early on set the pace for their entire industry. They develop innovative business models, cultivate winning company culture and attract and retain top talent.

Foldables have the hybrid employee experience written all over them. The devices are getting lighter and more powerful at the same time, and developers are increasingly designing their apps to fit the foldable user interface. Microsoft, for example, has optimized its Office Suite — including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook — specifically for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3.

Foldables bring the flash and flair of the newest consumer smartphone technology into the workplace, where they can then streamline workflows, keep teams connected and continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible on a mobile device. The result is a workspace in which employees are equipped and empowered to be their happiest, healthiest and most productive selves.

The tools you and your business need are in the palm of your hand. Let’s unfold the possibilities together.
