Samsung is ready to unveil two new phones at Mobile World Congress today. At its Unpacked event in Barcelona, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. We’ve seen both devices from every angle thanks to a variety of leaks over the past few weeks, but today we’re expecting to hear every new feature of Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones.

Samsung is making use of VR this time around, and if you own a Gear VR or Google Cardboard you’ll be able to choose viewing angles of the auditorium, and left, right, or center of the stage. If you don't own a VR headset (or Google Cardboard) you can even download the iOS or Android app and watch the stream by moving your phone around to access the full 360 degree effect. The Verge will be live blogging every second, so follow along for all the details.
