Mobile World Congress is shaking up to be an exciting event for smartphone fans and it sounds like March 1st might be an overwhelming day for reporters trying to cover it all. Samsung just sent out invites for its next Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event, joining HTC, Huawei, and others.

While no details are being provided, the invitation image is reminiscient of the curve we see on the Galaxy Note Edge. Was the Edge a precursor to a new Samsung design element that will appear on its mass market device? Will Samsung include a curved display on another side of the phone?

Samsung will be streaming its event so you can follow all the action yourself. ZDNet's Josh Taylor will be there in Spain to bring you his perspective on the launch.

There have been reports that Samsung may not be using the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 in its next flagship. In most cases, Samsung includes its own Exynos processor in devices outside the US. Qualcomm chips were used to support the wireless networks in the US, but Samsung may be moving to Exynos across their smartphone line.

Looking to the Note Edge and Note 4, expectations are that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will include the latest generation processor, Android Lollipop, very high resolution Super AMOLED display, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, improved camera, and use of metal.

Rumors speculate metal could appear on the edges like the Note 4 or full metal like the A5 and A3. I hope that Samsung sticks with microSD and a removable battery as these features still set Samsung apart from most other manufacturers.
