The Samsung Galaxy S5 event, UNPACKED 2014 Episode 1 starts later today in Barcelona, and Samsung is offering an UNPACKED 5 live stream for users that want to see the Galaxy S5 revealed.
Samsung will announce the Next Galaxy smartphone today, which based on all the evidence is the Galaxy S5. In the latest teaser, Samsung shows a silhouette of the Galaxy S4 with curves and a home button, teasing users one more time.
At the event we expect to see the Galaxy S5, hear about the Galaxy S5 specs and features and learn when the first Galaxy S5 release date is planned.
Samsung offers a Galaxy S5 live stream on YouTube so users can watch the event as it unfolds. The Galaxy S5 YouTube stream works on Mac, Windows, iPhone, Android and any device that can play YouTube videos. We expect the Galaxy S5 event will last about an hour and may start a little late.
Watch Galaxy S5 Event Live (Video)
Users should plan to watch the Samsung Galaxy S5 event live on Samsung Mobile’s YouTube channel. The video is embedded below, so clicking play will start the Galaxy S5 live stream or launch the YouTube app to get things started.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 live stream starts at 2PM Eastern, 11AM Pacific in the U.S. Clicking play on the Galaxy S5 stream above will show a countdown. It is a good idea to get the stream started ahead of the event, as extreme loads can cause hiccups in playback.
At the event we may not see the same over the top show that Samsung put on for the Galaxy S4, but we do expect more than a simple smartphone unveiling as Samsung will likely drive home the marketing words used to build excitement for the Galaxy S5, shown one more time in the video below.
Galaxy S5 News, Video and Photos from Gotta Be Mobile
The Gotta Be Mobile team is on the ground in New York City for an official Galaxy S5 satellite event where we expect to go hands on with the Galaxy S5 as soon as the event ends.
We will soon share a Galaxy S5 hands on video and a Galaxy S5 software overview so you can see the new Galaxy S5 well ahead of the release. Gotta Be Mobile will also share many comparisons so you can see how it stacks up to the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Nexus 5, HTC One and iPhone 5s.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to arrive with a 5.25-inch display that may offer a 2560 x 1440 resolution on one model, but the U.S. may only receive a Galaxy S5 with a 1080P display. We expect to see a better processor, new 16MP camera and a new flash. Samsung is also expected to include a fingerprint reader on the home button. A leak shows what could be the back of the Galaxy S5 and an opening for an IR port.
