Samsung Galaxy S5 Unpacked event scheduled for MWC 2014

We are three weeks away from the start of the 2014 Mobile World Congress as of today, and as those weeks start falling off our calendars, you had better believe that we’re going to be hearing a lot about what we can expect from the show. Samsung announced the time and date of its next Unpacked event. The Korean giant’s next major mobile product announcement will take place on February 24 in Barcelona, right at the MWC kickoff.


And just as last year’s invite played on the device name in the invitation (asking if we were “ready 4 the show”) this one has that tantalizing superscript 5, which we would just love to believe means that an early look at the Galaxy S 5 is in store for us.

Is that what will actually happen? There’s also a lot of other Samsung gear we’re hoping to see, like Tizen devices and new WP8 phones, so this could be one crowded event. Keep checking back with us over the next three weeks for any updates that come our way, and be sure to swing back around on Monday, February 24 to get that answer once and for all.

Rumored specs of the Samsung Galaxy S5 include a 2K display and 16MP f/2.2 camera. The smartphone is tipped to launch with a revamped TouchWiz user interface sitting on top of Android 4.4 KitKat.
