Update 2: Samsung has now officially sent out the above invitations.
Update: It appears the invitations, while possibly real, haven’t yet been officially released by Samsung.
Samsung has apparently let out some invites to its first “Unpacked” event of the year, this one happening next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The event, as noted on the invite, is apparently scheduled for March 1st. The invite first appeared via Vietnamese site tinhte.vn.
Curiously, upon contacting Samsung about the status of our invitation, a representative said the following:
Thanks for reaching out. The invitation has not been officially released by Samsung. We will have details to share with you very soon.
The invitation sports the words “what’s next,” which isn’t exactly a cryptic message. But there also seems to be a little bit of a tease of something curved, which could mean a variety of things. The company could be planning to bring the edge of the Galaxy Note Edge to the upcoming S6, or it could just as well be planning many variations of the device. We’ll see.
It was already expected that Samsung would be holding an event at the Mobile World Congress. The Galaxy S6 is expected to have a metal and glass body, a QHD Super AMOLED display, 3 GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and either a 16MP or 20MP rear camera. The latest reports suggest that the phone will be leaving behind the Snapdragon 810 in favor of one of Samsung’s own Exynos chips.
