You don’t have to take the trip to Barcelona to watch Samsung’s Galaxy S6 unveiling on March 1; the South Korean company has confirmed that its whole Unpacked event will be live-streamed via YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

A feed on Samsung’s official YouTube channel is already counting down to the event, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. local time — that’s 5:30 p.m. if you live in the U.K., or 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET if you live in the U.S.

Not only will Samsung unveil the Galaxy S6 at this event, but we’re also expecting to see its new S6 Edge, and perhaps some other devices, too. We’re also looking forward to getting our first preview of its brand new TouchWiz software.

This will undoubtedly be Samsung’s biggest mobile event of 2015. It will certainly announce other devices throughout the year — including the Galaxy Tab S2 we’ve been hearing so much about and, of course, a Galaxy Note 5 — but the Galaxy S series is always its best-selling.

Samsung will be hoping that this year’s smartphones can reverse its recent decline in sales, which have led to falling profits. The company is certainly pulling out all the stops to make the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge the best devices it has ever built… if you believe the rumors.

If you won’t be around to catch Samsung’s event next week, be sure to visit Cult of Android, where we’ll have coverage of everything that gets announced.
