Apple. Google. Amazon. Microsoft. Samsung. Huawei. Razer. Nokia. Facebook. 

The world’s tech companies are announcing so many gadgets we don’t know where to start. We’ll be bringing we back-to-back-to-back coverage this tumble — and here’s a beam to when and where it’s all going down.


Apple is seeking us to accumulate spin for a latest event. 

Apple (Sept. 12)

This tumble kicked off with a crash — not one, not two, but 3 new iPhones and a new Apple Watch were announced live from a Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, on Sept. 12. We were there, and here’s a lie sheet of literally all we missed. You can also review CNET’s liveblog if we wish a replay of a up-to-the-second news and analysis.

Amazon (Sept. 20)

The eventuality itself was something of a warn — no adorned invites being sent out in allege — though Amazon’s outside pop-up hardware eventuality was like zero we’ve ever seen on Sept. 20 in New York City. The association announced 13 new gadgets, including a freaking voice-activated microwave that can automatically sequence some-more popcorn. Not to discuss a horde of new facilities for existent Alexa devices, like a ability to listen for violation glass and send we a criminal alert. 

Here’s all Amazon announced.

Oculus VR (Sept. 26-27)

Facebook’s subsequent Oculus VR headset is approaching to be announced during Oculus Connect 5 on Sept. 26-27 in Santa Cruz, California. Which creates sense, deliberation we’ve been watchful for Oculus’ Santa Cruz antecedent to spin into a genuine product.

Oculus Go

Microsoft (Oct. 2)

Hints that new Microsoft Surface hardware will be announced in an Oct. 2 eventuality in New York City came with a word “A impulse of your time” on a invitation. Software and use announcements are also approaching when a celebration starts during 4 p.m. ET that day. 

This post will be updated with livestream information, if and when available.

Nokia (Oct. 4)

Are we still a Nokia fan? You’ll wish to compensate courtesy on Oct. 4 during 5 p.m. London time — aka 9 a.m. PT — when a association takes a wraps off its latest phone in a UK. Could it be that crazy Nokia phone with 5 cameras? Or a some-more practical notched Nokia 7.1 Plus? Or both? We’ll let we know.

Google (Oct. 9)

You’ll be means to locate CNET’s pre- and post-event coverage as good as Google’s whole livestream (which we can also find on Google’s YouTube Channel). 

Razer (Oct. 10)

Think CNET is removing any rest after a Google eventuality in NYC? Think again — unless this entice is grossly misleading, Razer will announce a second-generation of a gaming-centric Razer Phone on Oct. 10 in Los Angeles. We favourite a lot of things about a original, and a fingers are crossed that this one blows it out of a park. 

Samsung (Oct. 11)

And a day after Razer, we’ll immediately be prepping for a new Samsung Galaxy announce on Oct. 11. It’s not transparent either it’s a phone or not, though it’s presumably something important given Samsung didn’t seem to consider its triple-camera Samsung Galaxy A7 deserved such an event. Since a tagline is “4X a fun,” we’re meditative maybe a device that folds and flips into opposite configurations — say, Samsung’s long-awaited folding phone or maybe a detachable Chromebook. But it could also be a phone with 4 cameras. Why not? 

You’ll be means to find a livestream at Samsung’s Galaxy website.

Huawei (Oct. 16)

Mate 20, a subsequent flagship phone for Huawei, will launch on Oct. 16 in London. Last month, a association announced a Mate 20 Lite, that facilities a 6.3-inch display, a 20-megapixel behind camera, a 24-megapixel front camera and a delegate 2-megapixel camera for additional abyss information. The Mate 20 is approaching to have a shade as vast as 6.9 inches. Check behind for any updates on a probable livestream of this event.
