Reminder: Both Facebook and Samsung Have Live Streamed Press Events Tomorrow Morning

galaxy premiere

Be sure to hang around the site tomorrow morning (early afternoon for you east coast folks), as both Samsung and Facebook have live streamed press events that will be worth a watch. Samsung has an entire lineup of devices to show off, many of which they have already announced. Facebook on the other hand, has kept their news mostly a mystery, sending out physically mailed invites in the process. One thing is for sure, they made sure we were aware of the live happenings, so one would imagine that it will be somewhat mobile related. 

Facebook will kick off the day with a 10AM Pacific (1PM Eastern) event that as I just mentioned, is a wild card. The only rumor surrounding the event thus far claims that Facebook and Instagram will be unveiling a new social video service (potentially as a new feature in Instagram), similar to what Twitter has with Vine.

Samsung starts at 11AM Pacific (2PM Eastern) and is expected to have their new Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4 Zoom, and a new mirrorless Galaxy Camera variant called the Galaxy NX, on display for the press to fondle. We’ll have a chance to play with all of them, so if our coverage of any of these devices has interested you thus far, be sure to tune in. There could be surprises from Samsung, like an LTE Advanced version of the Galaxy S4 with a Snapdragon 800, but that’s just speculation on my part.

Samsung will stream their event at youtube.com/samsungmobile. Facebook will have a live stream available closer to the event.

    Why can’t they make a phone with on screen buttons again. I want to upgrade so badly from my VZW GNEX but I want on screen buttons. Am I alone on this thought?

    • Eldorath

      Not at all.. I’m sick of the hardware and capacitive buttons all these manufacturers are putting on their devices. :(

      • Geo

        Thank you! I hate that button on the S4 and HTC went screwy with their layout, I was really wanting a new Nexus :( .

    Is Facebook finally pulling its head out of its you-know-what, and fixing all the stuff it has broken semi-recently? (Comments being out of order, adding the ability to turn off that stupid ‘Other’ folder for private messages, etc.)

    Smart watch?

  • TheCheapGamer

    When I read this I thought FB was announcing something with Samsung.
    First though: Don’t ruin the Note 3!

  • Booyabobby

    Very interested to see Instagram’s video service. Developers at Vine even teased their next big update. Could get interesting.

  • EvanTheGamer

    I hear Instragram’s new Video feature could go live tomorrow. Hope it’s true!

    2 things I have noticed about Facebook today…

    Suddenly the Android app started showing profile photos in the notifications. This morning it still showed the Facebook icon, but sometime this afternoon, all new notifications come in with the contact’s profile photo on the left side of the notification, where the icon used to be. I did not update the Facebook app either. Must be server side.

    Also there is one that is not Android related, but website related. Since this morning, there seems to be a new option to post a picture in a reply to a wall post.

      FWIW I don’t use their app, but rather the mobile website. Recently they changed the UI a little bit. You used to be able to sort the newsfeed – they seem to have changed that in favor of an integrated chat menu.

  • XvierX

    Galaxy Note 3!!!

    • Justin Rogers

      This! Or at least I friggin hope

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Isn’t the GN always announced at IFA? way too soon to be taking attention away from the GS4

      • XvierX

        Probably right but here’s to hoping

        • Butt Crack

          Seriously…I want the Note 3 already. I love my Note 2, but the thought of this is just making me anxious. Lol.

      • FAL_Fan

        Dang man, I have to agree with you though I certainly do not want to…

  • Tyler

    Samsung Second?

    • XvierX

      Didn’t realize how much I liked forward to it until there want one scheduled. It’s throwing a wrench into my week!

      • Silver Veloz

        I guess they wanted to wait until after the Facebook – Samsung Press Events tomorrow.
