The hype surrounding the upcoming Galaxy smartphone has just gotten bigger. The folks at Samsung have devised a new way to further egg on the excitement regarding their upcoming flagship smartphone, commonly referred to as the Samsung Galaxy S III. The brand has put up a cryptic message on their Twitter account with the words, ‘Destination: tgeltaayehxnx.’ The latter word may seem like gibberish and in actuality it is, but those with a keen eye for puzzles can figure out that it is actually an anagram and when deciphered reads, ‘the next galaxy.’

Few hours till the next puzzle

The brand has not just stopped there and has also made a URL with the same cryptic word and when the link is clicked, it takes one to a countdown page with the words, ‘Coming Soon’ in bold and below that the reference to when the next step in presumably another puzzle can be taken. This would lead one to believe that if not a puzzle, Samsung might reveal something more about the upcoming Galaxy smartphone like maybe a teaser video or like in the case of Motorola when they revealed an image puzzle before announcing the RAZR smartphone.

In case any of you missed out here are some of the rumoured specifications of the next Galaxy smartphone:

  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 4.6-inch display Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1184 x 720
  • 1,4GHz quad-core processor
  • Mali-400MP GPU
  • 16GB Internal memory
  • Expandable via MicroSD card
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • NFC
  • 2250mAh battery

Rumours of this smartphone have been doing the rounds since late last year and over the last few weeks have gathered a lot of steam. The biggest bit of information came a few days back when a Vietnamese website posted a hands on video of the device. The website had detailed specifications of the smartphone, but what still remains in doubt is how this handset will look once it is officially unveiled.

As of now we have to just wait and see what Samsung has planned regarding their much talked about smartphone. For all the rumours and speculations surrounding this smartphone, click here.
