Samsung Galaxy S III Revealed

Samsung Galaxy S3


Samsung has finally revealed its flagship android device for the year, the Samsung Galaxy S III – billed as official smartphone for Olympics 2012 – a sequel of Galaxy line of smartphones.

First thing you will notice about Samsung Galaxy S III is its gigantic 4.8 inch Super AMOLED HD screen (1280 x 720) on a minimal design – which by the way isn’t liked by many due to its huge size and Samsung’s conventional plastic pack.

On hardware front, Galaxy S III comes with 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4 Quad processor, which is said to offer twice the processing capability of the older Exynos 4 Dual used in previous Galaxy phones, while it consumes 20% lesser power.

Samsung said that it has optimized the power usage for processor by enabling each core to use exactly the amount of power it requires for processing.

Yes, Galaxy S3 will run on Android 4.0.4 or Ice Cream Sandwich.

Then there comes a 8-megapixel rear-facing and 1.9 megapixel forward-facing camera. Camera has zero shutter lag so you can capture photos instantly. The camera is also capable of taking 20 photos at once in burst mode, and a feature called “Best Photo” will pick the best shot out of a group of eight.



“With the GALAXY S III, Samsung has maximized the consumer benefits by integrating superior hardware with enhanced smartphone usability,” said JK Shin, President and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung.

Samsung has introduced a plethora of software enhancements for Samsung Galaxy S3, including a Siri challenger: S Voice.

Here are few of features Samsung Galaxy S3 will offer:

  • Smart Stay: Samsung Galaxy S3 will dim its brightness when you’re asleep. So long as you are awake and will look at the phone, it will maintain a bright display.
  • Direct Call: Samsung claims that Galaxy S3 knows when you want to talk. If you’re messaging and want to call instead, simply lift your phone to your ear and it will dial your friend automatically.
  • Smart Alert: It knows when you’ve been away from your phone – vibrating nudge lets you know missed calls or messages.
  • Social Tag: It keeps track of your loved ones: a glance at your friends’ photos will show you their current SNS status.
  • S Voice: Samsung Galaxy S3 responds to your words: you can tell it to wake up, answer, even take a photo.
  • S Beam: Place two GALAXY S IIIs back-to-back and you can transfer pictures, music, videos, and more.
  • All Share Cast: Stream your photos, videos – even the game you’re playing – onto big screen, with your phone doubling as a controller.
  • Buddy Photo Share: It shares with everyone instantly: as the phone recognizes your friends faces, it can share photos with them instantly.
  • All Share Play: Galaxy S3 lets you share with everyone: access to documents and
    multimedia files when you work somewhere else.

In addition Samsung Galaxy S3 will allow you to watch HD videos while you text, or while you are writing a long email. A distraction some may call it – fun for others.

Samsung also partnered with Dropbox to offer 50GB of cloud space for Samsung Galaxy S3 owners.

Samsung said that one should expect world over launch of Samsung Galaxy S3 in June this year. That’s the time when we are likely to see this smartphone surfacing in Pakistan too. No words on pricing yet, but it is anticipated it would land around Rs. 55,000 to Rs. 60,000.

    • (Only KARACHI) Samsung champ delux dous C3312 FOR SALE takreeban new set hai ,company ki taraf se opper screen wala protector bhi laga hoa hai,earphones bhi panni main pack hai, charger bhi nahi khula hai,meri FINAL price 7000rs (fixed) hai agar kisi ko chaiye tu is pe mail karey = [email protected]

  • Really beautiful with full powerful features… Leave behind all other companies…

  • First off you information is wrong…. It supports microsim only

    Secondly its not what the sam fans were expecting no vamera and gpu upgrade plus 1.4 quad thats like having a suzuki liana and calling it a salloon

  • And its not the best of droids lg just announced a compitetor with 2gb ram and a quad core specs arnt clear atm but im sure its gonna be something big because in MWC lg told us that it was planning to grow big this year and m sure sammyboys have underestimated the market like iphone

    Plus we have nokia planning big too with its pureview about to go on sale with a monster camera and the windows 8 lineup im guessing this year samsung would have a tough time keeping the lead

    And dont forget huwai its launching its flagship as well this month and panasonic is back in the game as well

    • Furqan is right… the point that i also want to highlight in the comparison chart

  • @ Furqan

    u r right but not fully coz the specs displayed here are mixture of One X & One S…
    and BTW HTC One X also comes with Dual Core S4 but for At&T (USA)….

    and for comparison with other phones, believe me One X is far better than every other phone , i have used it…

    • exactly my point! but the international version of HTC One X is different then what is mentioned here under HTC One X heading.

      There is no doubt that 1x is by far the best phone currently in market but the only thing that concerns me for HTC One X is the battery life. As Phone is Quad Core with 4.6 inch screen but has only 1800amp battery.

      • seriously guys you got to update yourself, Exynos 4 has already riped off tegra 3. S3 is far better phone than one x check out the benchmrks on Gsmarena.

    • The new softweares like siri challenger, beam are awesome. Htc one x lacks in this area

  • @ all benchmark Results proved that HTC one X is not leading right now as S3 replaced first position in Quad core Product line.

    • and that too without a fully tweaked software. Commercial version of s3 will provide even more better results.

  • Jo center function tha S3 ka wo to janab ne bataya hi nahi S3 wireless charging hai ye 2 meter tak wireless charging karta hai baat ye nahi k 2 meter ka faida hai ya nahi but ye function or technology samsung ne launch ki hai zahir hai ye start hai next model mai charging range 15 meter hogi in my idea jo asal baat th wo to batai hi nahi

  • What makes you think it is alright to steal Engadget’s comparison chart and post it here without giving them credit? You give pakistanis a bad name.

  • I don’t like galaxy series. Nothing impressive in S3 almost same crappy design and boring touchWiz. One X is beautiful. Why 4.7 inch screen? is it a tablet or something :p
    Thanks for copying the spec chart from another blog ;)

  • Nice information about Samsung Galaxy S III thanks for sharing.Keep it up.
