1Yesterday we were talking about the Unpacked 5 event that Samsung said will take place on February 24th. Many said that even if Samsung didn’t announced it, it will be the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S5. Well today, a report from The New York Times has admitted that Unpacked 5 is indeed the launch for Samsung Galaxy S5.

Till now, we know from different sources that the new device will have a 5.25-inch display of 2K resolution, a 3,200 mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, 16 MP rear camera, an Exynos 6 octa-core / quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, front-facing camera at 3.2 MP, 32/64 GB of storage and a microSD slot, all of this running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat.

NY Times reports that Samsung officials said that the new S5 will be simple, with no out-of-the-box feature as was Galaxy S4. Instead, they want to develop features that will attract other audiences, such as business users, a small audience for Galaxy, so S5 will have KNOX security suite.

The same report stated that the  event from February 24th won’t be so glamorous as the S4 launch. Samsung wants to keep it smaller, a relatively low-key event. Maybe this is because the event is hold at MWC and not a private event, but Samsung wants to show that they don’t need any of that dramatic launch.
