Don’t Unfold For Speedy Selfies

Ever been walking in a forest and want to take a selfie next to a butterfly that may take off anytime? Cleverly, the Galaxy fold allows you to take a rapid selfie on the spur of the moment, without unfolding it.

Simply by double clicking the power button on the right hand side of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip while it’s closed, you can open up the camera, check out your shot in the cover display and then either click the volume button or show your palm to the front camera to take your desired shot.

Dual Preview: Helping Quick Usability

Several UI updates are helping photo sessions become easier. Dual preview is one such feature; simply double-tap
the screen to trigger ‘Bottom Preview mode’ which brings the camera control down to the bottom screen, allowing you to hold the phone and take shots with one hand, while your other hand quickly adjusts your top button
or untidy lock of hair.

Cleverly, Dual preview mode Dual Preview, showcases the camera preview screen on the main display and  the front cover display of the Galaxy Z Flip simultaneously. The subject of your photo then gets an idea of their pose in the picture as a whole.
