New phones and tablets aren't the only thing that Samsung will unveil in Barcelona. A recent Twitter post indicates that the company will reveal a new line of Exynos mobile processors, cryptically titled "Exynos Infinity." The post from the official Exynos account omitted any other details, but a debut during the Samsung Unpacked event on February 24th (concurrent with, but technically distinct from, Mobile World Congress) is a safe bet.

We haven't heard anything about an Exynos Infinity, but SamMobile seems convinced that this is the Samsung GH7, an ARM processor with a 64-bit architecture spotted in a recent Linux kernel patch. With Apple running 64-bit chips in the latest iPhones, and both NVIDIA and Intel announcing plans for new mobile 64-bit designs, it's only a matter of time before Samsung follows with its own in-house hardware. Whether this is coming next week, or if it will be seen in the Galaxy S5 or other flagship designs, is yet to be seen.
Samsung's Unpacked event is scheduled for Monday evening in Barcelona. We'll be reporting live from both Unpacked and Mobile World Congress.
