SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics will unveil new devices including its new flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 at an unpacking event in San Francisco on February 20. 

Samsung said in a statement on Friday that smart devices other than its upcoming flagship would be unveiled. The world's largest smartphone maker promised to live stream videos through its website and social media. 

According to leaked information released by online IT experts, Galaxy S10 is likely to come with a 6.1-inch display with a punch-hole style front-facing camera. The camera was designed to avoid the "notch" design which has an island on the top edge to house a speaker, selfie cameras and sensors.

Evan Blass, a famous American blogger, said earlier that S10 would have the ability to wirelessly charge other smart devices like smartwatches. Other online leaks suggest Samsung's new flagship will house three rear-cameras and dual front-facing cameras.
