Looks like Feb. 24 could be a big day for Android. Why, you ask? Because that’s the day of Samsung’s Unpacked 2014 Episode 1 event!
Samsung announced tonight that its first Unpacked event of the new year will take place in Barcelona, Spain, on Feb. 24, which just so happens to be the day that Mobile World Congress will be kicking off in the same city. The event is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. local time, which works out to be 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Samsung has included a link to its official YouTube channel in its announcement, suggesting that the event will be livestreamed for all to see.
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?
