Samsung Unpacked: Unveiling the New Note 7, 4pm UK Time

As everyone probably knows, today is the day Samsung unveils the Note 7.

I’ll be at the London launch event later to get my own hands-on with the Note 7, so if you have any questions please fire them to me on here, or on Twitter where I’ll be Tweeting news as-it-happens.

There’s a good chance of a new look Gear VR headset too (perhaps bundled with the Note 7, at least for those placing pre-orders) and possibly some other snippets of news that hasn’t already leaked – so it’s worth keeping an eye on things from 4pm UK time.

There might not be lots of videos going around showing the Note 7 in use yet, but perhaps here’s the next best thing – the Note 7 ROM running on a Galaxy S6. You can also download the ROM from the links in the video below.
