Galaxy S5 could be outed at a mid-March event, after all

Samsung is reportedly on the fence whether to hold the Galaxy S5 unveiling at its pre-MWC event on Sunday, February 23, or wait until after the expo. The info comes from the same Russian blogger that outed Samsung's alleged MWC plans, who now claims that after the first leak, Samsung is mulling a dedicated announcement in mid-March, like in the last two years, with a release date scheduled for April.

Murtazin claims that official invitations for Samsung's February 23rd event might start flying out as soon as next week, so we'll know more then. Since this is the last day of the Sochi Olympics, Samsung will at the very least use its MWC presence to showcase something similar to the Galaxy Note 3 Olympic edition, being the official games sponsor. There should be more info on the final decision in a few days, claims the blogger, as for now Samsung is still clinging to the original MWC announcement date.

Whatever the final decision, perhaps as early as the upcoming Monday, there's plenty of time for more leaks and speculation about the flagship 2014 handset to appear, and we are even hoping for a few design photos to slip through the cracks at least.

Leaks! Never fail to intrigue my mind! Let's hope Samsung will have some decent designs this time! For supporters of glossy plastic, I am one who cares about the design of my phone and will spend time admiring it from many angles~

I really hope that this Galaxy will not explode anymore. No one really wants to buys an expensive fire cracker by accident.

I hardly comment on IOS articles cos that's not what I use. I don't know why people bother to comment on a device they are not going to get? It's simply weird and baffles me. One thing I can tell you haters. Sammy has gotten the little stutter in touch wiz settled with the new kitkat update for the note 3. That should tell you s5 will be a bomb whether you haters like it or not.

Note 3 on KitKat is as fast as a Cheetah on steroids.

My sis' Note 3 is as fast as a Cheetah and it's on Jelly Bean still.
I guess Kit Kat is filled with steroids then.

All these speculations are just dumb. The simple matter is it will be announced sometime in the next 2 months both the HTC "two" and s5 so all these articles about hey its coming at mwc or it's coming before mwc or after is a joke. It's pretty much a fact that it's happening in the next 2 months.
