Samsung sends out invites for Unpacked event, hints at Galaxy S5

Samsung has sent out invitations for its Unpacked event that is scheduled for February 24 at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona. The company may be looking to spoil the party for other smartphone manufacturers by launching its flagship Galaxy S5 at the show, as previous rumors have suggested, but nothing is known for sure at this time.

The Galaxy S5 has been one of the most eagerly awaited smartphones from Samsung this year and rumors about its launch have made rounds for quite some time now. Initial rumors did point to an MWC launch for the smartphone but later it was speculated that Samsung might hold off till April to launch the S5 and focus on its Tizen-based offerings in Barcelona. However, the press invite sent out for the Unpacked event features a "5" superscript which may be a hint to expect the Galaxy S5 at the event scheduled for February 24.

Android's most successful device maker, Samsung, is expected to push the hardware limits even further with the Galaxy S5 as rumored specifications point to a display of 5.25 inches with 2K (2560x1440) resolution, a true octa-core processor with 64-bit support and a 16 megapixel camera.

Samsung may also showcase the recently leaked ZEQ 9000 smartphone based on Tizen during MWC 2014 which is just 20 days away.

I'm hoping the release of the S5 is going to coincide with the global roll out of Google Wallet.

I wish I could have paid with my phone the other day when I got to the checkout only to realise I'd left my wallet in my other jacket, grrrr!

Oh, you got an exclusive peek at the device before everyone else now?

Anyway, I'm willing to bet it looks exactly like the S4.
