How to watch the Samsung Developer Conference 2018 keynote

While the Samsung Developer Conference may not be as consumer-focused as the likes of Apple’s WWDC or Google I/O, this year could be a little different. Rumors have been circulating for months that Samsung could tease its upcoming foldable smartphone, set to be the company’s most innovative release in years. Skepticism certainly abounds surrounding the very concept of the foldable smartphone — but if it does take off, Samsung’s announcement could be the biggest thing to happen to smartphones since the launch of the iPhone in 2007.

Of course, you might be interested in checking out the announcement for yourself — and thankfully, there are a few ways to do so. Here’s everything you need to know about watching the Samsung Developer Conference 2018 keynote at 10 a.m. PT on Wednesday, November 7 (the event continues on Thursday, November 8).

Watch the SDC keynote on YouTube

Perhaps the easiest and most convenient way to watch the Samsung Developer Conference keynote is through YouTube. Samsung is only streaming the keynote the first day of the Samsung Developer Conference, so if you want t0 watch the entire second-day keynote, you’ll need to do it somewhere else. The company is, however, streaming a so-called “Day 2 Spotlight” on YouTube.
