Samsung is all set to host its annual Unpacked event on 12 February in San Francisco, where the company is expected to unveil several of its latest products in a biannual event. The event will start at 12.30 am IST tonight (30 minutes into 12 February).
You can catch the live update on the company's official website and its social media handles.
Among the products, Samsung is expected to launch are the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Buds Plus. It's very possible that the company might also make a couple of "surprise announcements." Our guess? That they might finally release the highly-awaited Bixby smart speakers, or another smartwatch.
To top all this, Andriod, too, has hinted at making an announcement about "something exciting" at the event.

Below this module, another highlight of the camera system is the 48 MP telephoto 'Periscope' camera that is reportedly capable of 10x optical zoom and up to a ridiculous 100x digital zoom.
