Don't hold the phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5 won't be at MWC 2014

Not that we really expected it to
The first comes from Italian journalist Flavio, who tweeted that a 'reliable source' had confirmed to him that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would be launched at an event in London in mid March.
London or New York?
ZDnet Korea cites a 'senior Samsung official' as saying that the main purpose of MWC is a business meeting and that the timing is wrong for the launch of the Galaxy S5, and rather than a London launch the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be unveiled in New York in March.
We were always skeptical that the Galaxy S5 would launch at MWC, so this news is somewhat unsurprising. A March launch does mean a slightly longer wait for the handset though, and kills rumors pointing towards an early Feb reveal.
As for whether it will be unveiled in New York or London (or both) we'll hopefully know soon.
