The Samsung Galaxy S8 has garnered its fair share of excitement over the past few weeks, and you can be sure that many people are looking forward to its reveal at today's Samsung Unpacked 2017 event. While there will be folks who will be catching it live in person, what about the rest of the world? It is a good thing that there is a live stream of the Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event that can be viewed online, as long as you are subscribed to a decent broadband package.
The Galaxy S8 is the brand new flagship Android-powered smartphone that will most certainly arrive with a variant of Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box, and we would not be surprised to see that there will be additional features of the smartphone that have not been revealed in prior rumors and leaks. Not only that, there will be plenty of attention showered on the larger sized Galaxy S8 Plus as well.
When will the Galaxy S8 launch?
South Korean conglomerate Samsung intends to host not one, but two syndicated Unpacked 2017 US and European launch events where the Galaxy S8 is concerned, with one of them happening in New York City, while the other would be in the great city of London. The corresponding global live stream will kick off at 5pm CEST, 4pm BST, 11am EDT, and 8am PDT -- depending on which part of the world you reside in.

If there is one thing that must be commended concerning Samsung, it would be the ease of how it has made it for the masses to keep track of its Unpacked events regardless of your geographical location, and the Galaxy S8’s launch continues in this tradition.

Will the Galaxy S8 live up to the hype?
With all eyes trained on the Galaxy S8’s impending reveal, we are quite confident that Samsung is not going to botch up one of its major releases in recent years. After all, it is certainly going to go up against its major rivals such as the already released LG G6 and the upcoming Google Pixel 2, not to mention vying for a place as THE Android smartphone representative to challenge the iPhone 8 that will mark Apple’s 10th anniversary for a smartphone release.
