Samsung “Unpacked 5” event to held on February 24 at MWC 2014 – The Galaxy S5 announcement

Samsung has announced that it’s next Unpacked press event which will be held in Barcelona on February 24. That’s the first day of Mobile World Congress in the year 2014.

The invitation to the event reads “Unpacked 5.” Samsung has the past to announce the upcoming Galaxy smart phones during these events, so it’s time to be announcement of the Galaxy S5 and second-generation Galaxy Gear smart watch.

Besides that, Samsung is also reported to launch a spinoff wearable device of the Galaxy Gear, which will be called as Galaxy Gear Fit. The Galaxy Gear Fit is a healthcare-oriented wearable device which will be competing with the Nike Fuel Band, Jawbone and Fit bit. According to expectations it’s supposed that the Galaxy Gear Fit will be the best wearable device upon release.

The company has released a trailer of S5 on YouTube as teaser for the Unpacked event, where the phone will be unveiled. The trailer is about of just 36 seconds, but it reveals few hints for us about the phone. So watch the trailer and read the analysis what trailer explains.

As we can see Samsung has used vivid images and described them with a 5 superscript attached. We could say that the 30-second trailer has been separated into three sections. The first section ends with the slow-motion shot of the kid sliding down the water slide. The words Wet indicate that the phone could be waterproof.


Then there’s a second break or ‘beat’ in the trailer which shows a group diving into water in slow-motion. The second clip though felt more focused on the slow-motion part than on the visual itself. So it could be that Samsung is countering Apple’s slow-motion recording feature from the iPhone 5s with the Galaxy S5.


Lastly, we see Life on the screen for the last few seconds. As you may remember, Samsung has been using the ‘Life’ connection very heavily in promoting its Galaxy S flagships’, at least for the last two iterations. So this means Samsung will be using similar marketing strategy for the S5 as well.

According to rumors & expectations about Galaxy SG, Upcoming Galaxy S5 is supposed to come with a 5.2-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display, Android 4.4 Kit Kat, 16MP rear camera, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB of storage space. There are also rumors about launching of two S5 variants (but that isn't a surprise): one featuring a 64-bit octa-core 2GHz Exynos 6 processor, and another one powered by a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU.
