    All the action coming up

    The Sun's Senior Technology and Science Reporter Jamie Harris is out in Seoul, South Korea, to bring all the action live, right here.

    Things kick off quite late over in South Korea at 8pm local time – but that makes it a nice reasonable time for Brits with a midday start time.

    It's a bit of an early one for Americans – 8am ET or 5am PT.

    How to scan QR codes on Samsung

    Samsung phones are, of course, Android phones so the process is pretty similar.

    Samsung has put the functionality within its operating system so all you need to do is open the camera, point it at the QR code and the URL should appear in the viewfinder.

    Just click on this to open the link.

    QR codes that show text only will give you the option to import the message into the Samsung Notes app.
