Samsung Galaxy Unpacked is happening right now, having started at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET / 12 PM BST / 9 PM AEST today (July 26), and we are on the scene live from Seoul, the foldable phone capital of the world. We have a Samsung Galaxy Unpacked live blog up and running, so you can follow along there.

Update: Samsung’s new devices are now official, and you can now check out our hands-on Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 review and hands-on Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 review for our early impressions of these devices, and our early Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 review and early Samsung Watch 6 Classic review for our initial verdicts of the wearables after our time with them so far.

We’ve also got our hands-on Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 review and initial Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra review, for our first impressions of the tablets.

If you want to see the action unfold for yourself and you can't attend the big party for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 launch, we've got you covered. Here is everything you need to know to watch the Galaxy Unpacked event live, or watch it later at your convenience.

When is Samsung Unpacked?

When will Samsung host its second Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event, where it is expected to announce the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Watch 6, Galaxy Tab S9, and Galaxy S23 FE?

Samsung is unpacking its huge heap of new devices today, Wednesday, July 26, in its hometown of Seoul, South Korea. Samsung says Korea buys more foldable phones than any other market by a wide margin, and foldable phones will be the big news. Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 could be some of the best foldable phones around, though they won't be the only attraction.

Since the show starts at 8 PM in Korea, it's going to take place very early for US audiences. If you want to wake up and see the event unpacked live, our east coast friends can grab a coffee and watch Samsung Unpacked at 7 AM ET (with me!), while our west coast readers will need to set the alarm for 4 AM PT. Our UK and Australian friends can watch comfortably at 12:00 BST and 21:00 AEST respectively.

How can I watch Samsung Unpacked live?

Where can I watch a live stream of the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event as it happens live on Wednesday, July 26 at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET / 12 PM BST / 9 PM AEST, or watch it later?

You can watch Samsung Unpacked on Samsung's YouTube channel. That video is embedded below, so you can watch it here on TechRadar if you'd prefer.

In the past, Samsung has also played a live stream of its Galaxy Unpacked event live on Twitter, on its own Samsung home page, and on its various media Newsroom websites. So expect to see video streams in those locations too once the event gets underway.

We're also hosting a Samsung Galaxy Unpacked launch live blog, which has already started. Here you'll find our live coverage of the event, along with our early reactions and opinions.

What will be announced at Samsung Unpacked?

What new devices will Samsung announce at its second Galaxy Unpacked event of 2023, on July 26?

Samsung is set to unveil both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 at Samsung Unpacked, but that's not all. We're also expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 line, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 line, and possibly other devices too.
