February is drawing to a close, and that means it will soon be time to head off to Barcelona, Spain for Mobile World Congress (MWC). MWC is the world’s largest smartphone show, and Ars will have boots on the ground to bring you the latest in mobile technology. The show officially runs from March 2-5, but the day before the show—Sunday, March 1—is when most of the big launches happen.
So before the madness starts, let’s take a look at what we’re expecting to see at the MWC this year. The show should have flagship launches from Samsung and HTC, as well as tons of other news from all over the mobile industry.
The Samsung Galaxy S6—and maybe something else?
Samsung has a big “Unpacked” press event planned for March 1, which you can see the teaser-invite for above. Our favorite interpretation of this image is “Samsung is launching the Galaxy Fork,” but it’s probably trying to tell us instead that Samsung’s next phone will have a curved screen. The white line matches the contours of Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, so we’re probably in store for a similar-looking device.
