SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics will launch its new Galaxy Note smartphone and four other smart devices on Wednesday as it seeks to regain the title of global No. 1 smartphone maker from its Chinese rival Huawei Technologies.

Samsung said last month that it will introduce five new devices at this summer's Galaxy Unpacked event, which market watchers expect to be new Galaxy Note and Fold smartphones, a tablet, earphones and a smartwatch. The official online launch will be aired at 11 p.m. Seoul time, or 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. It is the first time for Samsung to host an online unpacking event.
