Tech fans are counting down the hours until Samsung reveals the latest smartphone in its range of high-tech products at Samsung Unpacked.
If you’re curious about Samsung’s latest offering, Verdict has all the information that you need on the event and the products that are expected to be unveiled.
What is Galaxy Unpacked?
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked is a press event scheduled by the South Korean tech giant to unveil its latest products in its flagship Galaxy and Galaxy Note lines.
These events typically offer new and substantial details on upcoming devices that have been teased in the past.
When is Samsung Unpacked?
Samsung Unpacked will be held today at the 19,000-capacity Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York City.
The live stream will start at 4pm London time, so there’s not long left to wait to find out about the latest goings-on at Samsung.
What will be announced today?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will likely take centre stage today in Brooklyn. Tech fans are finally set to get some idea of what the handset will offer. Samsung hinted back in June that a new device in the high-end Galaxy Note line is due. However, they have offered little more than that since.
Likewise, leaks suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Watch is on its way, with a second gen smartwatch expected to be announced today. Rumours suggest that Samsung will ditch the Gear brand and adopt the same brand name that it uses for its smartphone and tablet devices.
Samsung is also expected to unveil a number of new accessories for its Galaxy product range.
