Samsung has started teasing the Galaxy S III, the next version of the company’s popular Android-based Galaxy S line of smartphones.
This morning the company’s mobile division tweeted a two-word message “Destination: tgeltaayehxnx” — an anagram for “The Next Galaxy.” The Verge discovered that tgeltaayehxnx.com actually points to a website that features a countdown clock that teases that “You can take the next step in…” about 16 hours , or Monday morning.
Other than the May 3 event Samsung has scheduled in London, we don’t know a lot about the new Galaxy phone. It’s doubtful that the company will reveal the full specifications for the device on Monday, but we might get the first shots of the phone as well as a short video teaser.
A leaked video of what could be the Galaxy S III indicates that the device will feature a dual-core 1.4 gigahertz processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM, a 4.6-inch screen with a 1184 by 720 resolution, an 8 megapixel camera, and a massive 2,050 mAh battery, as VentureBeat’s Devindra Hardawar reported last week.
Check back with us on Monday for full coverage of Samsung’s teaser announcement.
