After looking into Eldar Murtazin’s latest tweets, where he claimed knowledge of Nokia plans for the May European arrival of the Lumia 910, we learned about some additional messages he posted slightly earlier. Though the statements Murtazin made are a little less direct than his Lumia 910 comments, it seems that he claims first-hand experience with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S III, and offers a little insight into the phone’s hardware and Samsung’s release plans.
According to Murtazin, we’re looking at a quad-core processor in the 1.5-1.6GHz range. That sounds disappointing, since we’ve heard the phone associated with 1.8GHz or even 2.0GHz chips before, but Murtazin claims the phone is still blazing fast.
We’ve heard rumors that the Galaxy S III might find itself outfitted with an autostereoscopic 3D screen. Murtazin claims that he hasn’t seen any trace of that technology.
Like the Lumia 910, Murtazin reports the Galaxy S III will have a twelve-megapixel camera. Beyond that, though, he didn’t have hardware specs to offer. If Murtazin’s belief in the launch plans for the smartphone are correct, we’ll get our first chance to see it at the MWC next month, and it will hit European shelves in April.
