Can’t wait for the Samsung Galaxy S5 to be unveiled? If so, mark February 24th in your calendar as everything points to that date as possible announcement day of Samsung’s next flagship phone. Yesterday (February 3rd) Samsung sent out invitations for its Unpacked 5 event. A Samsung spokesperson wasn’t willing to reveal what ‘5’ means, but the number is more than a subtle hint that it refers to the Galaxy S5, especially after the company mentioned that it was going to announce a flagship product that day.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 being almost a year old, it is about time the Galaxy S5 showed its face to the world and Mobile World Congress in Barcelona seems like a good time to do so. The event will take place on February 24th starting at 8 PM local time, 2 PM Eastern and 11 AM Pacific. The Korean company will stream the show live at its YouTube channel to make sure we won’t miss a thing. This detail also suggests that the product unveiled at MWC will be an important one, and what could be more important than the next-generation Galaxy S phone at the moment?
As for the specs of the Galaxy S5, nothing we heard so far is official but based on the latest leak it will be awesome and outclass the iPhone 6. The phone is expected to pack a 5.25-inch SAMOLED display with 2560 x 1440, which if true would work out to a pixel density of 560 ppi.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy S5 most likely will be released in two versions, each one powered by a different processor. It looks like you the options are Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 or Samsung Exynos 6 chip – which one you get will depend on the region. Other rumored features include 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB, 64GB or 128 GB of storage, 16-megapixel rear camera and 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera. The Galaxy S5 will run Android 4.4 KitKat with a new version of TouchWiz UI right out of the box.
