While it rarely has the glitzy new hardware of other events from the brand, the Samsung Developer Conference is still an important event in the technology calendar. The event is renowned for bringing new software to the fore – meaning we could get a look at the One UI 6 software this time out.

That should mean new software for the best Samsung phones, as well as their range of tablets, and possibly even laptops. There could even be some other product types on show, too.

The event has been confirmed to be taking place on the 5th of October. Interestingly, that’s just one day after the Google Pixel 8 launch event, which is also expected to showcase the Android software which One UI is based on.

The Developer Conference is taking place live in San Francisco, California. If you’re not lucky enough to be attending in person, though, don’t fret. 

The event is likely to be livestreamed on the Samsung Developer Conference website, as well as on their YouTube channel

We also hope to host it here on T3.

What time does Samsung Developer Conference start?

The Samsung Developer Conference is set to kick off at 10am PT. That’s the local time zone over in California.

What to expect

As mentioned above, this event is likely to be much more software based than hardware. We aren’t expecting any new devices to crop up here – the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 were released recently, while the Samsung Galaxy S24 series isn’t expected until next year.

We are likely to get the first full look at the One UI 6 software which will power those devices, though, alongside older handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. We’ve heard a few rumours about that update, which will sit atop the Android 14 software.

While there is no guarantee of anything else being debuted, it’s certainly not out of the realms of possibility. Samsung is a massive company with a lot of different departments working on new technology, so there’s every chance that we could see something unexpected.
