Update: Samsung has mailed invites for the press to attend its Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, confirming the February 21 date. It’s the same date and general location as LG’s planned “Play” event.
When you have nothing to do on a Saturday night and you find yourself fielding a big, juicy tip on what’s going on with one of the most hyped Android devices of the season, you know something’s up. Evan Blass volleys two big screenshots of what may be a promo video for #TheNextGalaxy event that is scheduled for February 21, three weeks from today and 19 days before shipment supposedly begins in the US and Europe.

The box motif with the “7-“edged glow is also a pretty cool tie-in to the whole “Unpacked” deal Samsung has going on with its events.
Yes, that date chucks the phone right before the first day of MWC 2016. And regardless of what changes come in Samsung’s scheduling (barring the release of this promo video), you can bet we’ll be there.
