Samsung announced the newest phone of their Android handset on Thursday at a London event, the Samsung Galaxy S III (S3). The phone is the third-generation of the Samsung line and has a lot of new features that will leave your jaw wide open, maybe influence you to move from a flip phone. Do those still exist?
The design of the phone comes out of the box with a ‘Pop Up Play’ feature that allows you to do two tasks at once. For instance, you can watch HD videos while you email or text. The display of the phone is powered by a Super AMOLED HD screen which gives more subpixel than other phones, resulting in a higher quality 4.8-inch touchscreen display. Pictures can be taken with a 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.9-megapixel forward-facing camera. In addition, when taking pictures, the camera is able to take up to 8 pictures via a “burst” capability so you can choose from the best picture.
A new feature is ‘Smart Stay,’ as long as you are looking at your phone, it will stay illuminated and you will not have to tap the screen to prevent it from dimming or turning off. This new function recognizes how you are using your phone whether it is reading an e-book or browsing the web.
A new feature called ‘S Voice’ allows the phone to recognize your voice and will follow your commands, a Siri-like feature. For instance, you do not have to manually interact with the phone when your alarm goes off, you simply say “snooze” when the alarm sounds and the phone will go into snooze mode. Another feature of ‘S Voice’ is its ability to play your favorite songs, send texts, answer e-mails, and schedule tasks.
‘Social Tag’ is a new feature which recognizes your loved ones so you can tag them in your photos. In addition to sharing, the phone can operate with other Galaxy S IIIs via a ‘S Beam’ which is a back-to-back feature. This kind of works like the ‘Bump’ application for iPhones. Place the two phones next to each other and you both can share pictures, music, videos, and more. Other sharing features include an ‘Allshare Cast.’ This feature will allow you to beam your picture onto another larger device, like a television, so you can see what you are doing on a larger screen. One really cool feature is the ‘AllShare Play,’ this allows you to access other documents which are not on your Galaxy S III so you can work on them when you are away from your primary computer at work.
Under the Hood
The Galaxy S III is powered by a 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4 Quad processor. The best feature about this processor is it will use less power than the previous version and is twice as fast at processing data. What more can you ask for in an upgraded phone? In addition, the new processor allows 1080p video recording and playback! That means, no more grainy videos being uploaded to YouTube!
So, will the Samsung Galaxy S III be the phone of choice for 2012 or will Apple finally reveal the new iPhone after seeing what the Galaxy S III has to offer and counter their attack? Leave your comments below!
