Over the past couple months, rumors have surfaced that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would launch at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February 2014. These rumors may be true, as the Korean media has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 launch will happen at the event held in Barcelona, Spain.
This confirmation is based on a meeting between the media and Samsung Electronics Vice President of Design Team Dong-hoon Chang at a Neq Year’s event at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul. When asked whether the launch for the Galaxy S5 would occur at MWC 2014, Chang noted that the speculation was “about right”.
