Samsung has announced its latest "Unpacked" event where the company will announce, in its usual language, "The Next Galaxy." The event is set for Sunday February 21st at 7pm CET (1pm ET) in Barcelona, one day before Mobile World Congress takes over the city. The invitation includes an image of a shadowy cube with two edges glowing to form a "7," suggesting that we will indeed see the Galaxy S7 at this event, and the teaser trailer above sees someone staring at the cube through Gear VR goggles.

Various information on the supposed Galaxy S7 has come out over the past couple of months. The design is likely to be similar to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but Samsung's new flagship phone is said to have a microSD slot, a pressure-sensitive screen, USB-C, water resistance, and offer multiple sizes through its larger curved-screen Edge variant. Some models of the phone may also use Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 processor.

None of this will be confirmed for another three weeks, though, so make sure to keep your eyes on The Verge around then — we'll bring you all the news live from Barcelona.
