Samsung Confirms There Will Be No U.S. Based Unpacked 2015 Event Like Last Year

February 2, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

Samsung has been know in year’s past to do their Unpacked events at Mobile World Congress while also having an Unpacked event here in the U.S. This time around it seems that won’t be the case as Samsung has apparently confirmed that they will not be holding a stateside based Unpacked 2015 event. When it comes to Unpacked 2015, which is scheduled for March 1st according to the invites that went out this morning, the big rumor is that we’ll be seeing Samsung unveil their flagship for the year that will be part of the Galaxy S lineup, the much anticipated Galaxy S6.

They’re also rumored to be launching a Galaxy S6 variant with a dual edge display that takes after the Galaxy Note Edge announced and released last year, except this time with edges on both sides to add even more functionality to your display. There’s also been rumors of Samsung developing a round faced smartwatch for 2015 which would help them better compete against the other OEM’s who already have one on the market, which is s smart move as people seem to be gravitating towards the round smartwatches more than the ones with a square design. This round smartwatch rumored to be referred to as “Orbis” is also expected to get an official unveiling at the upcoming Unpascked 2015.

Since Samsung won’t be holding a local event here in the states, if you want to be front and center as everything is announced you’ll have to be heading to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, which we know isn’t going to be as likely for many people. Sadly, those of you who won’t be able to book a trip will have to watch things though the livestream like the rest of us. The good news is that there will be a livestream so you still get to see what’s happening, just not in person. Are you excited for Samsung’s announcements coming up at the beginning of next month? Were you over Samsung after the Galaxy S5 or are you willing to give them another shot to see if they really bring something amazing to this table this year?
