Samsung Unveils Galaxy SIII

  • After many months of speculatory rumors, leaked images, etc, Samsung Mobile officially unveiled their next Galaxy device, the Galaxy SIII.  The Galaxy SIII features a 4.8″ Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280×720, Samsung’s 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor with 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, 4G connectivity (carriers unknown), and of course will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.  The device itself measures in at only 8.6mm thick and weighs 133g.  Its 2,100mAh battery will help provide long battery life to last the whole day.  The phone will come with onboard storage of 16, 32, or 64GBs, with additional storage available via microSD.

    The Galaxy SIII’s design and features stress the point of going back to nature and being “designed for humans.”  The phone’s design itself was meant to resemble a stone pebble.

    The new Galaxy has many cool new features that include eye-tracking, which will make the phone’s display to stay on while you are looking at it; Social Tag, which automatically recognizes the faces of your friends in your photos and allows you to share them with them; S Beam, which will allow Galaxy S3 owners to share files with each other simply by tapping their phones together; and many many more.

    The Samsung Galaxy S3 will be launching in 145 countries with 296 mobile operators on May 29th in Europe, May 30th in the UK, and the 4G will hit North America, Japan and Korea in June.
