Where to watch this weekend’s MWC launches: live-streaming the G5 and GS7 events


How excited are you for this weekend’s smartphone flagship launches? Considering the extent to which we’ve been talking about the Galaxy S7 and LG G5 – and seeing how opinionated all of you have been about their arrivals in the comments – we’d say “pretty dang excited.” With their respective launch events now within sight, it’s time to start looking at exactly how you’re going to get all that news. We’re here to help, including hooking you up with some info about how you can live-stream the announcements.

First of all, we’ve got a team on the ground in Barcelona, so we’ll be bringing you first-hand news of all this year’s major MWC launch events. That’s going to include coverage of the announcements themselves, as well as plenty of hands-on footage of all the new hardware we’re expecting to see.

But say you’re a smartphone super-fan: you don’t have time to wait for all that, and want to be getting this news as soon as humanly possible. We dig it.

Samsung’s going to be streaming its Unpacked event live, this year featuring a special 360-degree panoramic feed. You can watch on your phone, on your PC, or get the full experience with Samsung’s Gear VR headset. Full details are available through the source link below.

The Samsung Unpacked event gets underway at 1pm Eastern (6pm GMT) this coming Sunday.

LG has confirmed its own plans to stream its G5 announcement, and while we don’t have a ton of details yet about just how that’s happening, you should be able to access the stream from the manufacturer’s YouTube page (linked below).

LG’s event falls a bit before Samsung’s, with things kicking off at 8am Eastern (1pm GMT).

Be sure and check in with us on Sunday for full coverage of both these major announcements.
