Samsung has officially announced their latest flagship Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S III, and we finally get to find out what specifications this high end Android smartphone has.
The Samsung Galaxy S III features a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which means it can handle content in 720p.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is powered by Samsung’s new 1.4GHz quad core Exynos processor, and it also features a new GPU, there are also two cameras with a 1.9 megapixel camera up front for video chat and a rear facing 8 megapixel camera for videos and photos that is capable of full HD video in 1080p.
Other specifications on the new Samsung Galaxy S III include NFC, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and it will be available in a 16GB and 32GB version initially with a 64GB version to be released at a later date, there is also a microSD card slot which can take up to 32GB cards.
The Samsung Galaxy S III comes with a 2,100 mAh battery, and Samsung has also added a new range of software to the device, which include ‘Natural Interaction’, and according to Samsung this is:
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.
There is also another new feature on the Samsung Galaxy S III, called ‘S Voice, which Samsung describes as an advanced language user interface, so we presume this is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Siri.
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
The Samsung Galaxy S III will go on sale in Europe this month, and will launch in other markets in June, which will include the US, and will then be rolled out globally.
