Today Samsung is to announce its "next Galaxy". We can confirm that the "next Galaxy" is actually two variants of the SGS7: the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, and a new Gear 360 camera. 

Both phones are being launched during the Samsung Unpacked event on the eve of the Mobile World Congress convention in Barcelona. Watch it live here. We have the livestream of the event here on this page, which will show everything from the stage in Spain for you to view from the comfort of your own home.

If you can't be bothered to sit and watch the announcement, check out our hands-on previews with the new products right now:

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge preview: The best smartphone Samsung has ever made?

If you own a mobile-phone powered virtual reality headset, such as the Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard, you can even watch the event broadcast in 360-degrees.

That's right, you can watch the ugly mugs of the journos and developers sitting in the audience rather than the unveiling of the phones themselves. You might even spot the Pocket-lint team somewhere amongst the busy throng.
