Samsung Tease, "If technology is to be truly smart, shouldn't it fit into your life naturally?" - UPDATED
The www.tgeltaayehxnx.com website must be getting rammed because we can't get it to update anymore now that the timer has run out, however Samsung has just tweeted, "If technology is to be truly smart, shouldn't it fit into your life naturally? http://youtu.be/FdNMO-zm1ls #Unpacked" and wouldn't you know it there is a 15 second teaser that doesn't tell us anything else! =( I hope that's not all they've got for us. Eager Beaver.
Looks like the real destination was www.thenextgalaxy.com. Not a real surprise, but the password request has been removed since we last tried that site, but we still can't load a page. All of you must be trying to do the exact same thing.
Oooh another longer teaser video is HERE!
A few hours ago SamsungMobile tweeted "Destination: tgeltaayehxnx". Not the trickiest code, as it is clearly an anagram of The Next Galaxy. Going to tgeltaayehxnx.com takes you to the above countdown timer which as of this minute reads 46 Minutes. According to Engadget, once the timer hits zero, there will be a further anagram puzzle. Perhaps it will provide login details for thenextgalaxy.com which currently does not allow entry without them, and is registered anonymously. Oooh Sneaky!
This video surfaced in Vietnam, is supposedly a hands on view of the new Samsung Galaxy S3. As we mentioned in a previous post, this Galaxy S3 was also encased in a generic case to hide the real design. While it's obviously got Ice Cream Sandwich, and there is plenty to believe, I'm still unsure. The last one we saw in a generic case still had the home hardware button, which this one does not. We've also heard that up until relatively recently, Samsung was still unsure about whether or not to keep the home button, but then decided to keep it.
Furthermore, there is mention of an 8-megapixel camera which I find surprising considering the S2 had an 8-megapixel camera already. I would expect some increase there, if only to improve on existing hardware. if you can't see the video above, click here.
Ok, first off, THIS is the latest image of Samsung's Galaxy SIII that was leaked to Gizmodo Brazil. It's kinda interesting, kinda believable too, and it certainly doesn't look like a photoshop jobby. Now, the reason for the title of this post is that Samsung is so sneaky and I love it. According to The Verge, Samsung has been keeping the design of the Galaxy S3 top secret by using an old trick. When the handset has to go out and be tested in the real world, they're packing it inside a generic and random case! It's such a simple idea and so obvious too! Of course they would do that. This practice is common in the car design industry too which is why I have no doubt that these claims are legit. Their source also says that "No leaks of the final design have been accurate". So exciting.
We may FINALLY have a date for the big reveal. Samsung has gone out and invited people to "Come And Meet The New Galaxy" on the 3rd of May. Of course it could some other Galaxy device, but it just HAS to be the Galaxy S3 (Siii). After all, Samsung did say it would be announced in the first half of the year, and they're running out of time. I for one can't wait to see what they've got up their sleeves.
