Samsung GALAXY S III Smartphone Announced

Samsung announced the GALAXY S III smartphone (model GT-i9300) that recognizes your voice, understands your intention, and lets you share a moment instantly and easily. The third generation GALAXY S offers a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel front camera enabling intelligent camera features and face recognition related options. It is powered by Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, with greatly enhanced usability and practicality to make life easier.

Introducing Natural Interaction
The GALAXY S III enhances the interaction experience between the device and user. Smart enough to detect your face, voice and motions, the GALAXY S III adapts to the individual user to provide a more convenient and natural experience. With the innovative Smart stay feature, the GALAXY S III recognizes how you are using your phone — reading an e-book or browsing the web for instance — by having the front camera identify your eyes; the phone maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure.

The GALAXY S III features S Voice, the advanced natural language user interface, to listen and respond to your words. In addition to allowing information search and basic device-user communication, S Voice presents powerful functions in regards to device control and commands. When your phone alarm goes off but you need a little extra rest, just tell the GALAXY S III “snooze.” You can also use S Voice to play your favorite songs, turn the volume up or down, send text messages and emails, organize your schedules, or automatically launch the camera and capture a photo.

In addition to recognizing your face and voice, the GALAXY S III understands your motions to offer maximized usability. If you are messaging someone but decide to call them instead, simply lift your phone to your ear and 'Direct call' will dial their number. With Smart alert, the GALAXY S III will also save you from trouble by catching any missed messages or calls; your phone will vibrate to notify missed statuses when picked up after being idle.

With the new S Beam, the GALAXY S III expands upon Android Beam, allowing a 1GB movie file to be shared within three minutes and a 10MB music file within two seconds by simply touching another GALAXY S III phone, even without a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. The Buddy photo share function also allows photos to be easily and simultaneously shared with all your friends pictured in an image directly from the camera or the photo gallery.

With AllShare Cast, users can wirelessly connect their GALAXY S III to their television to immediately transfer smartphone content onto a larger display. AllShare Play can be also used to instantly share any forms of files between GALAXY S III and your tablet, PC, and televisions regardless of the distance between the devices. Under AllShare Play is also the Group Cast feature that allows you to share your screen among multiple friends on the same Wi-Fi network. In addition, Wi-Fi Channel Bonding doubles the Wi-Fi bandwidth.

The GALAXY S III also sports a range of additional features that boost performance and the overall user experience in entirely new ways. It introduces Pop up play, a feature that allows you to play a video anywhere on your screen while simultaneously running other tasks, eliminating the need to close and restart videos when checking new emails or surfing the Web. Its 8MP camera features a zero-lag shutter speed that lets you capture moving objects easily without delay — the image you see is the picture you take. With the Burst shot function that instantly captures twenty continuous shots, and the 'Best photo' feature that selects the best of eight photographs for you, the GALAXY S III ensures users a more enhanced and memorable camera experience. HD video can be recorded even with the 1.9MP front-facing camera, which you can use to capture a video of yourself. Improved backside illumination further helps to eliminate blur in photos that result from shaking, even under low lights.

Mobile payment is also accessible with the device through advanced Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The gaming experience is enhanced through Game Hub, providing access to numerous social games, while Video Hub brings users high quality TV and movies. Furthermore, Samsung Music Hub will offer a personal music streaming service. Game Hub, Video Hub and Music Hub will be introduced in select countries initially and soon rolled out to global markets.

Price and Availability
The Samsung GALAXY S III will be available the end of May 2012 in Europe before rolling out to other markets globally. Samsung will introduce a variety of additional color options, but it will first launch in Pebble Blue and Marble White. Check price
