Samsung Galaxy S3 quad-core phone to launch in April?

Fans and users of Android phones, and in particular those close to the Samsung Galaxy range, take note. There is such a thing as the Samsung Galaxy S3, and it’s already being used by known gadget gossipist Eldar Murtazin.

Murtazin is a well-known insider to mobile phone companies, recently predicting Nokia’s tie-in with Microsoft. He now claims to have a Samsung Galaxy S3 in his possession revealing that the phone will be available this April, also sharing the specs publicly through Twitter.

Murtazin says that the Samsung Galaxy S3 and its release window will mimic that of previous version, the Samsung Galaxy S2 by releasing after the Mobile World Congress convention next month by hitting the shops in April.

Telling all on his Twitter page – @eldarmurtazin revealed to followers: “HD resolution, 12 mpx camera, sw tweaks, android 4 – i like my new phone. Eager to see official announcement in Barcelona.”

So that’s a 12-megapixel camera and the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system there. He also claims the phone will pack a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. However it is still worth remember that as Samsung has yet to announce anything, Murtazin’s tweets, and claims to already have he handset in his possession have to be classified as a rumour.

Murtazin recently predicted a new Nokia Lumia 910 model will arrive in the UK in May, before the Nokia Lumia 900, so also watch out for that, should the prediction come true.
