Samsung's IFA event: Watch the live stream right here
Samsung’s IFA press event is scheduled to kick off later today at 6PM CET (12PM EST). It will take place at Berlin’s Tempodrom arena, where the tech giant is expected to take the wraps off a number of devices.
As usual, Samsung will live stream the event, so you can watch it from the comfort of your couch anywhere in the world. Those of you interested can just head to Samsung’s website via the button below later today when the video for the event becomes available. We’ll also update this post with the video as soon as it pops up online.
Although Samsung didn’t share a lot of specific details regarding the products it will reveal in the capital of Germany, it did announce on Twitter that we can expect to see a few wearable devices.
What’s new in wearables? You’re about to find out. Watch live on 08.30.2017 at https://t.co/D1o7wTsE5H pic.twitter.com/7z0qMrkIQK— Samsung Mobile (@SamsungMobile) August 28, 2017
Our best guess is that we’ll see the Gear Fit 2 Pro, which was recently listed on the company’s Spanish website for a short period of time, likely by mistake. We also know that a new Gear smartwatch device will be revealed, as this has been confirmed by the president of Samsung’s mobile division in a chat with CNBC.
Additionally, a Bixby-enabled pair of wireless earbuds — similar to Apple’s AirPods — might also see the light of day at IFA. They were initially rumored to launch alongside the Note 8 and since that didn’t happen, they could be announced in Berlin together with the other devices mentioned in this post.
We won’t have to wait much longer to find out if the rumors are true or not, as the event is only a few hours away. When the time comes, just grab some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the show.
