Are you ready for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch? We’re almost there, the event kicks off in the early hours of Wednesday morning here AEST and though we can’t all be in New York you can still check it out as it happens.

Samsung is live streaming the event through YouTube, as they’ve done for the last several years, and that trend will be continuing on the Samsung Mobile YouTube channel. The Galaxy Unpacked 7 event will also be streamed in 360-degrees from the samsung.com/galaxy/ webpage. Gear VR owners will also be able to watch the event on their headsets with the Unpacked 360 View app available to install from the Oculus store.

Of course there’s little to actually announce at the event with specs already leaked, as well as several renders of the device – and the rumoured next gen Gear VR headset for the Note 7 – which you can check it out here.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
