Samsung sold over 300 million phones in 2011, with the much loved Galaxy S II raking in the majority of the profits for the company. Over 20 million units were sold. Now, Samsung electronics has just released yet another amazing smartphone, the successor to the Galaxy S II — the Samsung Galaxy S III.
This phone comes in Marble White or Pebble Blue with dimensions of 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm. Yes, it is quite large, but the good news is that with its curvy edges, any inhibitions about its size fades into the background as it feels quite comfortable in the hands.
Let’s take a look at a few specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
The Processor: it has got the 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4 processor (the Galaxy S2 had a 1.2 GHZ dual core), which makes it amazingly fast, maybe even one of the fastest phones available today. This is especially good for 3D gaming and mobile internet. “The application processor is a crucial element in providing our customers with a PC-like experience on mobile devices,” says Hankil Yoon, Senior VP of Product Strategy Team at Samsung.
The Camera: the camera is an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video in front. You can bet on clear pictures and videos with this phone. Images are sharp, but not too much. Here’s something pretty cool about the camera—you can take still images while recording a video.
The Screen: the screen is a 4.8inch Super AMOLED 1280×720 HD touch screen. This screen makes everything bright and colorful and is amazing for web browsing. Images are so clear and, like I said earlier, they are sharp but not so much that it hurts your eyes.
The Galaxy S III supports NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 and comes with 16, 32 or 64-GB storage. But incase this isn’t enough for you the phone comes with a micro SD slot card, so you can expand the memory. It also has a larger battery, 2100 mAh, when compared to the Galaxy S III which had a 1650 mAh battery.
This phone was released late last month in 28 countries.
