is all set to be launched at an event in New York at 11am EDT (9:30pm IST) on Wednesday. It is one of the most highly anticipated launches of the year, and a very important one of Samsung after the controversy surrounding the Galaxy Note 7.

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event will be live streamed on the company site.
