It is still two weeks before Samsung will reveal the “next Galaxy” in London. However, Samsung Mobile put out a tweet today saying: “Destination: tgeltaayehxnx”. Although that may only be gibberish to you, it soon became clear that “tgeltaayehxnx” is an anagram for “The Next Galaxy”. In addition, after doing a quick search, the anagram is also being used at http://www.tgeltaayehxnx.com/. The website is a countdown to 7am EDT in the USA and 12 noon in the UK.

With so much time left before the actual event in London, no one really has any clue what the countdown will reveal. However, we do already know that the next device in the Galaxy series is on the way, with a possible “S-Cloud” storage service to match. Rumors have already revealed a possible 12MP camera and a quad-core processor for the Galaxy S3.

If you’re still puzzled on what an “anagram” is, try typing the word into Google and see what you find. Wikipedia is also a good place to get an answer on “anagrammatists”.

What do you think Samsung has up their sleeve for this morning? Let us know in the comments below. Meanwhile, we’ll keep you posted with any new developments!

[Update] Android Community found some additional clues in the internal structure of tgeltaayehxnx.com. Apparently, when the countdown will reach zero, visitors will be presented with a puzzle, that they’ll have to solve by rearranging the letters in “tgeltaayehxnx” to form “the next galaxy”. Once the puzzle is solved, visitors will receive a link to http://thenextgalaxy.com/, which is currently password protected. In other words, more teasing.

[Update] TheNextGalaxy.com is live – it’s a teaser video. See it here.
