Welcome to the event many never thought would happen. After the Galaxy Note 7 turned from flagship phone to airline PA warning and tech blogger punchline, many wondered if there would be a follow up. But here we are at Samsung Unpacked in New York, and every teaser and leak points to the return of the company’s phabled phablet.

As far as what the expect from the Galaxy Note 8, we’ve seen plenty of hints. Samsung’s own press material has suggested, unsurprisingly, the return of the iconic S Pen, along with the addition of an Infinity Display.

In fact, it seems like a safe bet that the company will be taking more than a few cues from the Galaxy S8 — the addition of smart assistant Bixby is also a no brainer. With all that in mind, the company have to find a way to differentiate the product from the S8+, beyond just the S Pen. Perhaps some new features or a different screen size?

And, of course, Samsung always has a few surprises up its sleeves. Accessories, perhaps? In past years we’ve seen new Gear VR headsets and Gear 360 cameras. Wearables could also be on the menu, though the company has to keep something up its sleeve for IFA in a few weeks.

We’ll be documenting things as they unfold right here, beginning at 8AM PT/11AMET. Bookmark this page to reserve your front row seat. You can also follow along at home with Samsung’s Unpacked livestream.

Today is Samsung day. The company is about to unveil its new big phone — the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. While there has been leaks of the new device, the company could surprise everyone with new software features and new components.

The event will start at 11 AM in New York, 8 AM on the West Coast, 4 PM in London, 5 PM in Paris and midnight in Seoul.

It is going to be live-streamed by Samsung and I’m going to embed the player right here. So please refresh this page once we get close to the event.

Also worth noting, Samsung is going to talk about safety. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a great phone, but it was also a phone that caught fire. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been doing well, so it seems like people have been forgiving. But it’s hard not to think about the fire incident.

Samsung’s Bixby assistant is now available for Galaxy S8 owners worldwide

Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant is now global after it expanded into over 200 countries today.

Bixby is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and other virtual assistants. It got off to a bumpy start when it didn’t ship with the launch of the Galaxy S6, Samsung’s top-of-the-range device for this year, in March. Samsung rolled out a ‘preview’ version in June, before the full version with voice-control went live for Korea and then U.S.-based users in July.

There is a limitation to this global rollout, since it will only be available to those who own the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6+. Samsung does intend to bring Bixby to more devices, but we don’t currently know which ones or when. If you believe the rumors, the assistant will eventually go beyond phones with Samsung planning to release a smart speaker of its own.

Samsung said in the immediate future, beyond more device support, it will work on new languages, features and integrations with third-party apps.

“The expansion of Bixby’s voice capabilities is an initial step in the continued rollout of Bixby functionality. In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices,” said Injong Rhee, executive VP and head of R&D, software and services for Samsung’s mobile business.
