Samsung's first Galaxy Unpacked event of 2024 takes place today, which means we're just hours away from the official unveiling of Samsung's Galaxy S24-Series of smartphones including the Galaxy S24 Ultra and an all-new host of AI features to debut on the platform.

It's up to Samsung to set the tone for the year ahead as they are the first major brand to take to the stage and showcase some of this year's most hotly anticipated hardware. The Galaxy S-Series has been one of the only smartphone lines to truly hold its own against Apple's iPhone and has a long history of impressive technical prowess with annual bragging rites over some of the highest specs in mobile tech.

With the adoption of a new Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a strong likelihood of a camera array that pushes its shutterbug reputation to new heights, and a suite of Pixel-familiar AI tools onboard, Samsung is proving itself to be a fighting champion when it comes to retaining its crown as the top Android device — and here's how to catch the world premiere of its latest smartphones live online.
