A good rumor is sometimes hard to pass up. Especially when it is about a new device that we have all been seeking more info on everyday. Eldar Murtazin is a man who has had a decent track record of spilling the beans, or predicting, things. He was right on the nose with the Samsung Galaxy S4, so it is hard to not get just a little bit excited about the tweet he put out late last night.
Samsung Galaxy S5 launch – 18.00. Barcelona. 23 February. Price the same. Launch – end of April. Specs – u know them new touchwiz
Not like we haven’t seen enough leaks to know that Samsung is changing up the UI finally. We anticipated an April release, and while we thought an announcement at Barcelona during Mobile World Congress was possible, we weren’t sure. Of course it could still change. While Samsung is notorious for taking to their own stage and doing their own event, I think last years theatrical experience didn’t pan out so well for them. Sticking to a more traditional showcase and announcement might be a bit better. Even though MWC will be saturated with devices and new products, Samsung will still be able to dominate the scene with the Galaxy S5 if they indeed do announce it there. It would certainly cut down on the press travel expenses and double up on the exposure if they do do it.
We will just have to wait and see if Eldar’s Tweet pans out next month.
