This Wednesday marks one of the year’s biggest events for the smartphone world. In New York City, Samsung will unveil its newest flagship offering, the Samsung Galaxy S8. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting what’s in store for this year’s major Android handsets, you’ll definitely want to stay in the loop. And luckily, Samsung will be streaming the event live, so you can follow along as the company unveils its new phone—and perhaps some other new products, too.

How to watch the Samsung Galaxy S8 event

If you’re on a desktop, you’ll want to watch the event by heading over to Samsung’s website here. Samsung will be live streaming beginning at 11am EDT.

Samsung also offers an Unpacked app on iOS or Android, but unfortunately, the benefits of this app are invite-only. You can only get the full experience if you’ve been invited to the Samsung Unpacked event itself, or if you have been otherwise gained access to an invite code. If you have that code, you can use this app to watch the livestream and get additional information about the day’s announcements. For the rest of us, however, we’ll just have to watch the event from the Samsung website.

If you’re not up to speed on what to expect from Wednesday’s announcements, we’ve rounded up Galaxy S8’s rumored specs, features, and leaked photos here. One of its most anticipated new features is Bixby, Samsung’s virtual assistant.

We’ll also be covering news from the event, so if your work or sleep schedule isn’t amenable to Samsung’s keynote time, you’ll still be able to catch up on the day’s most important announcements.

Correction: The original version of this story misstated the date of the event. Samsung Unpacked takes place Wednesday, March 29.
