Well, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold series has entered the Star Trek universe of the 25th century. In the second episode of the second season of Star Trek: Picardwe see the character of Dr. Agnes Jurati using a device to tap into something as she tries to restore communications between the show’s main characters.

This is where we get our first look at the Galaxy Z Fold series device. The device has a thick crease between the center of the inner screen, similar to what we have on Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold devices.

In a later scene, Dr. Jurati does something to boost everyone’s signal and opens a teleport window. Here we get an enlarged photo of the device’s fold. As noted 9T05Google, since the filming of Star Trek: Picard season 2 started in early 2021, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is used in the series.

Additionally, the camera cutout for the front camera is visible, clearly revealing that this isn’t the first-gen Fold, which came with a notch camera cutout on the inner display.

The Star Trek franchise is known for showcasing some of the modern technology that actually exists today. It will be interesting to see what tech gadgets future shows in the Star Trek franchise will highlight in their next series, and if a Samsung device will play in any of them.
