Welcome to press day at CES 2016. The show doesn’t officially begin until Wednesday, but many companies make announcements today to try to generate buzz going into the show. And of course, some of the bigger companies also host press conferences on press day. LG took center stage earlier this morning and showed off its latest and greatest gadgets, but now the event you’ve been waiting for is here: Samsung’s CES 2016 press conference.

Samsung is one of the biggest technology companies in the world, and it always uses the annual Consumer Electronics Show as a platform to show off a wide range of gear that will be released in the year that follows. Samsung’s flagship smartphones for 2016 will be unveiled later in 2016 — the Galaxy S7 later in Q1 and the Galaxy Note 6 sometime in the late summer — but the company will have plenty of other devices to show off on stage today.

What can you expect to see from Samsung? There will definitely be plenty of giant HDTVs to drool over, and you can rest assured that Samsung will have a wide range of connected devices to unveil as well. Connected refrigerators, connected ovens, connected washing machines and anything else you can think of are all fair game, and you can expect to see some new tablets, wearables and computers as well.

As for what else is in store, you’ll have to follow along to find out. Samsung’s CES 2016 press conference is scheduled to begin at 5:00 p.m. EST / 2:00 p.m. PST, and you’ll find the live video stream embedded below.
