While Apple is rumored to release two next-generation iPhones later this year, it looks like South Korean handset maker Samsung could beat its California rival to the punch with the imminent release of its flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone.
Samsung today issued invitations to the media for a press conference on February 24th at Mobile World Congress, one of the most popular trade shows for smartphones and tablets. The event, which kicks off at 8:00 PM local time or 2:00 PM Eastern, is rumored to revolve around the launch of the Galaxy S5 or other big announcements…
Android Police reports with an ounce of skepticism:
Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy S5 will be released this year, and it’s certainly possible that we could see it in Barcelona, but it seems unlikely that the company would follow two years of dedicated events with a trade show reveal for their most important product line.
The company launched its Galaxy S II handset at Mobile World Congress several years ago, before turning to special events in London and New York City to launch the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4 respectively. Regardless of what happens, attendees of the Barcelona show will be in for a great treat later this month.
Which smartphone do you think will be hotter this year? The iPhone 6 or Galaxy S5?
