Live: Samsung Unpacked 2013 Episode 2!


We are live in New York City for Samsung’s Unpacked 2013 Episode 2 event! Below you’ll find a live stream of the event, along with play-by-play coverage through our live blog for those who can’t stop what they are doing to watch the action unfold on video.

As you can see the from the picture I snapped last night, Samsung is indeed preparing to take over Times Square once again, just like they did with the Galaxy S4 launch. This time though, it’s all about the Galaxy Note line, and the Galaxy Note 3. We’ll also more than likely be treated to Samsung’s first smartwatch, dubbed the Galaxy Gear, so join us below to take it all in. 

The live event kicks off at 10AM Pacific (1PM Eastern).

Following the live event, we’ll have a chance to get our hands on all that is announced. Stick with us!

  • MacNificent

    its about time that samsung make a UI overhall. The s3 look is getting old.. ))-;

    • Carlos Lopez

      Their ui is the same i think you mean Hardware design overhaul

      • MacNificent

        Well I could’ve said that as well. but I’m talking about the look of touchwiz..

        • Carlos Lopez

          It still looks the same though

          • MacNificent

            that was the point of my comment. it needs to be changed. the look sucks

  • Josh Miller


  • Chippah

    whats the hotel impossible guy doing there? Looking for semen stains?

  • bluemon

  • evan brown

    the real question is, where can we get those amazing glasses?

  • bkosh84

    The Emcee reminds me of this guy, lol.

  • cheese

    • Matthew DiGiacomo


  • Guy Pierce

  • Rocketjrb

    Is that the guy from the Six Flags commercial?

  • wickets

    where is update for note 2???

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    i’m in for the watch and tablet. i can’t have a note 3 + table combo, doesn’t make sense.

  • Chippah

    September 25 2014 for Verizon! Tsss Tsss

  • Godzilla

    screen size and price for the watch? Will it work with the S4?

  • Jim890

    OMG, I just cream my pants!

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    I don’t see the problem. I hate metal.

  • Godzilla

    leather? wtf?

  • Godzilla

    I have to leave for work in a few minutes, looks like this will take forever. Oh well.

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    So if the Sony Z1 doesn’t have 4K….will the samsung?

    • Jim890

      Maybe..They were rumors that it will have it. We will finally know everything about it!

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        So did the Z1. Interesting to say the least. As of now, only Acer has made a camera capable of it.

  • Shane Redman

    Is it going to include any useful software enhancements or more typical samsungery???

  • Chippah

    Where is the broadway production and terrible actors?
    Where is that stupid kid i wanna kick in the face?
    He can tap dance on my face.

    • Chippah

      I Spoke too soon! queue corny orchestra

      • Chippah


  • Jim890

    galaxy Note 3 case…?

  • jboogie1289

    Wonder if HTC will try and crash this like they tried to do with the GS4? Or wait, was it LG? I can’t recall as I was tuned out to floating trash.

  • Chippah
  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    i can’t sign in but here’s my final prediction :
    fhd screen
    exynos 5 octa clocked at 2.2 ghz
    rubberized s pen
    improved note taking software and a s games for pen.

  • Xanth77

  • Ashish Raj

    The latest leak states that there would be a fingerprint scanner on Note 3 to identify user.

  • Chippah

    Note 3 = the best option for us launch day GNEX owners on Verizon to upgrade to.
    Battery life is like forbidden fruit to a gnexer.

    • EdubE24

      Is that Jim Norton in your photo?

      • Chippah

        Jim who? Im Lyle Chip chipperson, aka double guns magillacuddy chippa

        • Chippah

          and im gonna go get zooted right after this.

  • jboogie1289

    It’s almost time. I hear the cheesy music on the YouTube live streaming channel.

  • Blake

    So is this event in NYC or Berlin, I’m confizzled.

  • A.Miller

    Excited to see the Note 3. Would like it to be my next phone, but may not be able to afford it off-contract.

    • jboogie1289

      That’s gonna be my route to purchase this time. But, it’s only money right? With the sale of my GN2, this will make it sting a lil less.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Off-topic question: What happened to the Sharing buttons at the top of every post? Just wondering.

    • Broke after a WP update. Long story short, third party plugins must be updated to support newest versions of WP. Until then, we wait… 🙂

      • EvanTheGamer

        Ahh, that was it then. Okay, thanks for the response.

  • jnt

    Get ready for idiocracy… followed by a cool device announcement.

  • Prox

    That galaxy gear better not look like Sh*t. Would be a nice surprise if it was flexable OLED but thats not gonna happen. I have set my expectations very low so I am not disappointed.

  • jboogie1289

    In less than 1 hour my Note 2 will be getting ready to be put up for sale pending the release date/pre-order date(s)!!!

    • luke

      mine s4 is already sold in preparation for this note 3!!!!

      • jboogie1289

        I don’t wanna jump too fast. I have to let the GN2 down easy!!

  • EvanTheGamer

    NOTE 3 FTW!

  • Philip J. Fry
    • joseph barrientos

      thank you for this, people on the train are wondering why im cracking up!

    • F-your iphone hipsters!!

      • Butters619

        Not defending the iPhone, but at least half the hipsters I know have Galaxy products.

        • jnt

          +1 – The Galaxy lineup has become more hipster than the iPhone, IMHO, thanks to the iphone’s attractiveness to the Boomers and above.

          Edit: and just because a hipster likes it doesn’t mean a non-hipster can’t…

          Edit 2: I own a GS4 and love it… and I’m not a hipster.

      • tyguy829

        i don’t think these people used to watch the Chappelle Show…

  • Jim890

    Oh man, I have been waiting for this day for a long time and it’s finally here ! Even though I have a meeting to attend at two this afternoon, I will watch the first hour and hoping they will get right to announcing the note 3.

  • crazed_z06

    My body is ready.

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      As is mine

      • Tio Salamanca


        • EvanTheGamer

          Didn’t someone blow you up last season?

          • JoshGroff

            Technically, he blew himself up.

          • EvanTheGamer

            True that, but if it wasn’t for Heisenberg who set up us the bomb(lol?), Gus would have taken that old bastard out. Just sayin’. haha

          • JoshGroff

            Lol! Although, it was also part of Walt’s plan that made Gus want to take out Tio. IIRC, he was going to let him live knowing that everyone he cared for was dead.

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        i’m happier than a fat kid eating cake

        • EvanTheGamer

          Don’t think that’s possible.

  • Note 3!!!! 🙂

  • Thomas

    The Note Cult shall rise again !!! Right Tim 😉

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      no, he’s already married.

  • DanielP
