Samsung on Tuesday sent out press invitations for an event that will take place on February 26 during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

It's unclear what Samsung plans to release during its MWC event. The invitation appears to hint at a device with similar dimensions as a tablet.
Normally, we'd expect Samsung to unveil the latest Galaxy S flagship smartphone during MWC, as it did with the Galaxy S7 phones.
However, this particular invitation lacks the tell-tale "Unpacked" branding that normally features in invitations for new Galaxy smartphones, such as the Galaxy Note 7 invite below:

The glaring omission of the "Unpacked" branding lines up with Samsung's own statements that the company will delay the announcement of the Galaxy S8. The delay could be related to the failed Galaxy Note 7, which was cancelled due to battery issues. Indeed, Samsung would surely do everything and anything to avoid a similar debacle.
Instead, Samsung will supposedly hold its Galaxy S8 event on March 29, according to the reliable gadgets leaker, Evan Blass.
Whatever Samsung has up its sleeve, we'll have to wait until February 26 to see.
