Asus has launched a new video teasing its plans for the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.

The company's video, called "Ultimate Craftsmanship. Today." shows a UFO soaring over Barcelona and landing on a church as spectators watch in amazement. The video ends with the invite to "join Asus to embrace the metallic miracle" on February 25 at Mobile World Congress.

Exactly what Asus has in store for the show is currently unknown. However, the company's Mobile World Congress event page is titled, "In Search of Incredible." A secondary headline reads, "Asus launches the Next Mobile Transformation."

Asus didn't say whether it will show off a single device or if it plans to unveil a wide array of smartphones and tablets. But it appears, based on the video, that the company will have some sort of device with chrome on it.

We'll find out exactly what Asus will deliver at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 25. And as with last year, CNET will be on hand to cover every last detail.
