Where to watch the Samsung Galaxy S8 live stream
Samsung wants to try and reinvent the smartphone and this is how you can watch it happen live.
Back at Mobile World Congress Samsung set the launch date for its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone and that day is almost upon us. Unfortunately for us Australians, Samsung will be unveiling the phone at an event in New York City, which makes watching the event as it happens a little more challenging.

On the upside, this is the era of the Internet and live-streaming global events is as easy as pie. So long as you're willing to set your alarm for just before 2am, you too can watch the Samsung Unpacked event as it happens.
Samsung will be streaming the event live from its own website, as well as through its Samsung Mobile Facebook page. There will also be a YouTube live stream, which will be accessible from this post as the event kicks off.
If you prefer to watch your smartphone launch live streams on a mobile device, Samsung has also launched a free Samsung Unpacked 2017 app for both Android and iOS, through which you can watch the event directly.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the larger Galaxy S8+ are expected to be announced at the event overnight, alongside a new range of accessories including a new Gear VR headset.
The event will also signal the first real launch of the Samsung Bixby digital assistant, which will go up against the likes of Siri, Cortana and Google's Digital Assistant.
