MWC 2014: Samsung Galaxy S5 launch - live!

Samsung’s getting ready to unpack the Galaxy S5 over at MWC 2014, and we’ll be live at its press shindig to bring you all the juicy details as they break.

It’s not getting its own all-singing all-dancing launch away from the bright lights of MWC, but does that mean we’re in for a disappointing S5?

Will we see that long-rumoured fingerprint scanner? Has Samsung done away with the plastic casing and gone all-metal for the first time?
