Samsung teases the power of 5 in new Unpacked5 promo

Samsung teases the power of 5 in new Unpacked5 promoIt’s looking very much like the Samsung Galaxy S5 launch will go down in just under two weeks in Barcelona (I’ll be weighing up the yeas and nays shortly), and in the meantime, we’re being tickled once again.

In a new Unpacked5 promotional image, we’re seeing lots of stuff to the power of 5. As in… Samsung Galaxy S5? Yeah, probably.

The Unpacked5 teaser has been released in an official capacity (as opposed to being leaked unofficially), debuting over on Samsung Tomorrow, the South Koreans’ official global blog.

We’re seeing Speed, Outdoor, Curiosity, Fun, Social, Style, Privacy, Fitness and Life, all to the power of 5.

The right side of the image looks very much like a set of icons, and seems to click with those leaked Samsung Galaxy S5 screenshots we saw last week.

Samsung Tomorrow teases: “Also we are sure that you have noticed that there is lots of 5s.”

The blog continues: “We understand that there is lots of speculation regarding what will be unpacked in Barcelona. However, we at Samsung Tomorrow have to agree with what the 1922 Nobel Prize winning physicist, Niels Bohr, who laid the groundwork for atomic structure and quantum theory, once said: ‘Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future.’”

Unpacked5 is scheduled for February 24, the opening day of this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC).

Yeah, I'm more of a 95% round man myself.

Seriously, though... I really dislike Samsung's weirdly garish, yet washed-out greens and organge tone... The Nokia N9 lets you change the theme to 'subdued'...that looks very similar...

It just looks a little weird.

I won't be getting a GS5 but if I were, I'd at the least (assuming the other themes, if there are any are just as unremarkable) be downloading a new launcher.

True, of course.
