Home Home Tech How to watch Samsung Galaxy '4x fun' event live stream on 11 October

Samsung is launching a mystery Galaxy smartphone at 5pm in Malaysia, which is 8pm in Sydney, 10am in London, 2am in San Francisco and 5am in New York.

Is it a smartphone with four cameras? It is the mythical foldable smartphone? Some say the former, others say the latter will also be launched, which means two phone launches, or maybe more!

Maybe it's a precursor to a phone with five cameras, but Nokia is rumoured to be doing that, and I predicted in an April Fool's joke earlier this year that this year's iPhone would have six cameras, but that, of course, hasn't happened – or at least, not yet. 

Whatever is launched, for once, Americans will have to wake up in the early hours of the morning to watch a smartphone launch, with events like Apple's launching normally happening at 3am in Sydney.

Obviously, the time of launch is different around the world, but with Samsung's mystery Galaxy 4x fun launch happening at a much friendlier 8pm in my time zone of Sydney Australia, it will be nice to not have to be up at crazy early morning hours just to see the latest and greatest.

Of course, this is likely to be a once off – next time, Samsung will presumably be launching in New York, Berlin, London or Barcelona once more, or some other location on the other side of the planet, but hey, every once in a while, it's nice for the time zones to work in the Southern Hemisphere's favour.

Now, one thing's for sure – it has been smartphone launching season, with Samsung having recently launched its best Android handset yet, the Note 9, followed by Apple launching its best iPhones yet with the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.

Last week, LG launched its best-ever smartphone, the V40, while HTC's best with Edge Sense capability being the U12+ launched earlier this year.

This morning as I type, Google launched its purest and most capable Android smartphones with its Pixel 3 and 3 XL models, and tomorrow night as I type, 11 October, Samsung's third flagship phone for the year will finally arrive.

The company posted an article dubbed "How to Watch A Galaxy Event from Anywhere", with Samsung noting that "there’s just a day to go before Samsung Electronics hosts A Galaxy Event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia".

"At the event, the company will unveil the latest in the Galaxy series – a device that offers even more ways to express yourself and capture the fun.

"For those who are not able to attend, make sure you catch it all live by tuning in on October 11 at 5 p.m. MYT via any of the links detailed below."
