Watch the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event here LIVE
Samsung is holding its annual Galaxy Unpacked event at New York’s Lincoln Center today, and we’ll be there to bring you hands-on reports following the presentation.
We’ll have to wait to see what’s unveiled, but it’s expected the South Korean tech giant will be announcing two new 5.7-inch smartphones -- the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge Plus -- and maybe a new smartwatch, the Gear A. If you can’t be at the event, don’t worry, you’ll be able to watch it right here live.
The timing of the Galaxy Note 5’s reveal is interesting as Samsung usually waits until the IFA in September to roll out a new version of its phablet. This year, however, it’s bringing things forward, presumably to avoid a clash with the rumored Apple iPhone 6s Plus.
The Note 5 is reported to come with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED 2560 x 1440 display, 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB minimum storage. Expect a 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation and two-tone flash, and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
The Galaxy S6 edge Plus will be a larger version of the Galaxy S6 edge which was launched five months ago at the Mobile World Congress 2015.
The Galaxy Unpacked Event starts at 11AM EDT/8AM PT/4PM BST.
