We’ve been wondering for some time now when the Samsung Galaxy S5 was going to be announced. Well, Samsung has settled that matter once and for all after sending out invites today to the Samsung Unpacked 2014 Episode 1 event.
Scheduled for February 24th in Barcelona, this announcement will be made in the midst of the MWC 2014 frenzy. Further indication that the event will unveil the Galaxy S5 is the fact that the invite has the words “UNPACKED 5″ prominently stamped across it. Samsung also makes reference to its YouTube channel suggesting that it will be live-streaming the unveiling, which we’ll be covering a bit closer to the date.
Now that Samsung has made Unpacked 2014 Episode 1 official, it’s time to begin speculating about what the company may have up its sleeve for the event. We know that the Galaxy S5 is slated to make its debut sometime in the coming months, and the inclusion of the “5″ next to “Unpacked” certainly could be taken as a hint toward the next Galaxy S flagship. Samsung chose to unveil the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S 4 at events dedicated for each device, but the company has introduced new Galaxy S hardware at MWC in the past, so perhaps Samsung has decided to take advantage of the fact that most mobile journalists will already be in Barcelona at the end of February and will end up showing its next Galaxy S there.
What do you think Samsung has planned for Unpacked 2014 Episode 1?
