Just a few months after unveiling its Galaxy S4 smartphone, Samsung is getting ready to unveil new mobile devices.

The South Korean electronics giant announced Monday that it will hold a press event in London on June 20 that will presumably highlight additions to its Galaxy and Ativ lineups. The terse announcement includes close-up images of three devices, suggesting that at least three new gadgets will be unveiled at next month's event.

Ativ -- Vita spelled backward -- previously applied largely to just the Ativ Smart PC and Smart PC Pro, both Windows 8 tablets, but was recently expanded to include Windows PCs. The company has also applied the brand to the Ativ S Windows Phone, which was released to lackluster fanfare, as well as planned but canceled the Ativ Tab, a Windows RT slate.

The event, which will be livestreamed on Samsung's mobile YouTube page, will come a week before Microsoft's Build developer conference and 10 days after Apple kicks off its Worldwide Developers conference.
