Next week, Samsung is set to unveil the latest addition to the popular, oversized Galaxy Note series of phones. Given that the Galaxy Note 7 suffered a total recall last year, after several of the handsets caught fire due to two separate design flaws, the Galaxy Note 8 is a long-awaited update from Samsung.
A few weeks ago, Samsung sent out media invites to an upcoming Unpacked event in New York City, complete with a teaser image showing the silhouette of a Galaxy S8-shaped device with an S Pen in tow. Here's how you can watch the Galaxy Note 8 Unpacked event live tomorrow.
Watch Samsung's live stream
Per usual, Samsung will live stream the Unpacked event, which begins at 11:00 a.m. EDT (8:00 a.m. PDT) on Wednesday, August 23. You can find the live stream at samsung.com.
Historically, Samsung has also streamed the event on its Samsung Mobile YouTube channel.
