How to watch the new Galaxy smartphones get revealed at Samsung Unpacked on January 17

It’s almost time for the first Samsung Unpacked event of the year. We’re almost guaranteed to get the first official details about the Galaxy S24 smartphones, which are almost certainly going to have on-device generative AI features. You’ll be able to watch Samsung Unpacked at 1PM ET on January 17 on the company’s website or YouTube channel.

What to expect at Samsung Unpacked

Samsung hasn’t exactly been subtle about what’s on deck for Unpacked. The company has been teasing something called Galaxy AI for mobile devices across several promo videos:

Yeah, it’s pretty safe to say AI will be a focal point of the showcase. In November, Samsung revealed its Gauss generative AI models. These can handle tasks such as translation, coding assistance and turning text into images. The S24 lineup is also expected to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which can handle many generative AI requests on-device. As such, at least some GAI features won’t need to go through the cloud, meaning that they should be processed more quickly.

As for the new smartphones, there likely won’t be many changes on the hardware front beyond spec bumps. That said, the S24 Ultra is slated to have a fully flat display along with a titanium casing, according to a leaked spec sheet. Just in case there was any doubt about fresh Galaxy phones being in the offing, Samsung already has a pre-order page up for “the newest phone from Galaxy.”

It’s less certain whether we’ll see any hardware other than smartphones at the event, though some rumors have indicated the presence of a Galaxy Fit 3 fitness tracker and/or Galaxy Book Pro laptops. This being Samsung, there’s always at least a small chance of seeing new tablets, smartwatches and earbuds too.
