Galaxy S III

Samsung Galaxy S III Launched – 4.8″ 720p Super AMOLED Display, 8MP Camera – Specs & Features

The Next Galaxy, i.e. the Samsung Galaxy S III is finally into the scene. Thousands, literally thousands of false news kept the readers busy on just dreaming about what would be possible specifications of the Galaxy S III, but the truth has come out. The Galaxy S III rocks, its truly superb and keeps everything else at bay today. And no, its not the #NextGalaxy but the Galaxy S III would be the official name of the phone.

Check how Samsung Transformed to the best every year, from the Samsung Galaxy S in 2010 to the S III this year.

Samsung Galaxy S III

Here are a few features that we have found out, as the event goes on live right now:

  • 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED Display
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 1.9MP front camera with “face recognition”
  • 2100mAh Battery
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS

S Voice for the Samsung Galaxy S III is what the Siri app for the iPhone 4S is. It recognizes your voice, listens to your command and acts the way you want it to.

Here are some of the best features of the Galaxy S III:

Smart Stay – The front camera of the phone recognizes whether you are actively looking at the phone screen and using it, and until that the screen is turned on. If the camera doesn’t detect your viewing, the screen would turn off automatically.

Direct call – This feature is helpful when you are trying to text message someone but in the end decide not to do that and call the same person. For making the call, you just need to lift the phone towards your face or ear and the call would be dialed automatically.

S Voice – We talked with a bit of over excitement here about this feature, and compared it with the Siri for iPhone but actually it isn’t. It listens to your commands, but a very few ones. Searching using the Google search, turning the camera on, calling someone, checking the weather etc. is what all is done listening to your commands.

S Beam – The Near Field Communication transfer is taken to the next level from the standard ICS based NFC that came earlier. The tapping and phone-to-phone transfer is possible in a faster and better way.

Burst Shot (Best Photo) – 20 captures in a super-fast mode, and all are displayed at once and out of them you may select the best shot and all the other are deleted. This is nothing new, as the HTC One X Camera already had a better way, capturing 99 pictures in the same burst mode.

Wireless charging is what we have heard of, but aren’t sure how it works until we directly test it out.

May 29th is the date when the Samsung Galaxy S III would be actually available in the market in the West, and in the Eastern nations like India, the market would get it for sale in June.

We are still updating.

After the break: The previous news, rumors and talk about the Galaxy S III. Whatever has just been released, is updated above.

How many of you have already bought a Samsung Galaxy S I9000 mobile phone and are confused on should to upgrade to S2 or wait for something better? Here is a good news for all of you because Samsung’s mobile division president has hinted that the Galaxy S3 is soon going to be launched with some awesome configuration. In an age where Samsung has ruled the Android Market with its “Galaxy” Series signature after the hit and hot selling success of Galaxy S as well as Galaxy S2 phone, time has now come to speculate about the Samsung Galaxy S3 handset which is already in the making for making itself available in the year 2012.

First of all Samsung is trying to beat all the Apple Records in terms of sales and the Galaxy S2 has helped them in doing the best by bringing Samsung into Number #2 top mobiles selling company. If you are already having a pretty good mobile which you are not yet planning to sell away or upgrade then its suggested to wait for around a years time for the Galaxy S3 or the Galaxy 3D models. While the lawyers of both Samsung and Apple are busy in fighting it out for the supremacy in the technology space, the Engineering units of both are busy in creating an unforgettable and powerful smart phone with iPhone5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.

Samsung Galaxy S3

We have very less details on this handset as of now but Apple would of course get the first preview because of the ongoing legal battle between both the companies and we should expect some actual snaps of the phone by this year end. It is being speculated that the model number for the Samsung Galaxy s3 will be GT I9300.

Going with the specifications its expected to obviously be an upgrade of the Galaxy S2 with the Camera being 12Mp, quad-core processor, a super-bright AMOLED 3D screen with NFC, 4G Supported device etc. to name a few.  Especially when the HTC One X, Ascend P1 D and Meizu Mx Quad Core phones are out, it will be have to be atleast 1.5 Ghz quad core processor Samsung Exynos CPU. Also its expected that this would be the first phone which would feature the Ice Cream Sandwich. Also the screen size should be around 4.5″ which beats the LG Optimus 3D and also offer you with 4G connectivity support. Lets wait and watch how all this goes and when the phone would be actually be available to you and then you can decide if its worth upgrading your current phone or not. It is also said that this phone will be launched in the first half of FY’12. So, just in case if you have not purchased the last phone from the Samsung which is the Samsung Galaxy S2 then its probably just time to wait as you can buy an all new and probably the World’s best would be smart phone, the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Undoubtedly, Samsung is betting very big on this handset as its in no mood to disclose things about this Samsung Galaxy S3 anything Officially. This smart phone is going to be the World’s slimmest smart phone ever which was disclosed by our close source from Samsung. Another most important feature which is speculated is that it will be having the lowest SAR value which is basically the radiation emitted by the phone. With rising health concerns around the Globe and people’s preference on talking on the phone more than meeting personally, its very important ensure that you have a smart phone which has the lowest SAR Level. With higher SAR levels, the phone tends to get heated up which can in turn damage the brain. Considering the fact that by 2012, the 4G will turn into reality and almost maximum countries will be witnessing the 4G, this support also looks possible. So, in all if you have a look at some of the core features or say USPs then these will be 12MP camera with probably CMOS Sensor with it.

The below picture was recently popped up on the web claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S III would be launched world wide in May 2012. Hope these rumors are true and we really get a chance to see this device.

Samsung Galaxy S III Android Phone

Highlight Features of Samsung Galaxy S3:

  • NFC (Near Field Communication) Chip,
  • 3rd generation Super AMOLED 3D Screen,
  • Ultra Low SAR Levels,
  • Blazing fast Speeds with Quad Core Processor,
  • Probable 4G Supported Phone,
  • Slimmest Smart Phone ever

Am sure after reading this whole article you might just still want to know on by when this phone will be launching, for which we just can say one thing, stay tuned to as we will be updating this article as in when we get any inputs from our sources at SAMSUNG etc. We still haven’t added any concept photos of Samsung Galaxy S3 as of now  in this article, but as soon as we get any we will surely update this article with the same.

Galaxy S III would be priced at Rs 43,180 as the MRP price on the box and to get discount in the form of assured gift worth Rs 1500. You can purchase this handset at Samsung India eStore online.

    Only a few have been released and I was one of those lucky ones that found a place that sold them and it was worth the drive. I tried to bog it down by playing a movie on top of my scramble game and it was running like a champ. 2gb of ram is totally what makes this phone so efficient. I haven’t even scratched the surface of using all it’s functionalities. Operating this phone is like owning a new laptop in the palm of your hands. Best phone I ever owned so far, iphone5 has met some competition.

    I had the 4S and let me say.. I’ve never had an Android OS before.. this phone is a bit difficult to manage. Apps are slow (I have AT&T) opening, internet is slow opening as well and finding what you want (quick fix is using the google app), the phone feature sucks and doesn’t ever let me open the keypad and I try to be as fast as I can on it, and I don’t see the need for 5 different messaging programs, but okay.

    Out of the positive’s I’ve found, definitely a way better screen resolution and the screen size is amazing. I’ve only had this phone for 2 days but it’s not bad.. once you get used to it. I’m giving myself until the end of this week before I return it. A friend of mine said it’s possible it could be a defective phone. Battery life is amazing compared to the iPhone too. Camera isn’t too bad and the panorama style is pretty nifty. I haven’t had a problem with the S Voice understanding me yet, so no complaints there.. It’s taking some getting used to but not terrible yet.. 😉 Of course the iPhone is a bit more user-friendly.. so going from the iOS to an Android is a bit.. difficult and I’m an IT major getting my Master’s in IS. It’s just hard when you’ve used the iPhone for 4+ years to go to something else but heard great things on the S2 so giving it a try 😉

    I just got off of the phone with T-Mobile Customer Service and I have
    been told the following about the availability of the Galaxy S III:

    Only the 16 GB phone will be available in stores (white and blue).
    Rumor has it that stores will be getting the 32 GB phones in 3 or 4

    Only the 32 GB phone will be available for web order (white and blue)
    and the customer must pay shipping ($25.00 for overnight shipping).

    The website will start taking orders at midnight Pacific Standard Time
    (2:00 AM Chicago Time). If the online order is placed before 2:30 PM
    PST on Thursday (and they still have phones left) the order will ship
    that day for delivery on Friday (if you have paid for overnight

    There is no statement of how many phones will be available on line and if they run out when the next shipment will be available.

    What models will be available from customer service at 1-800-TMOBILE is still to be determined.

    I think we should call and write customer support and tell then how
    stupid this is and how this defies all logic as far as customer
    satisfaction is concerned. has phones for Sprint available for pre-order. I could walk
    into an AT & T store and get the phone that I want Thursday morning
    without paying shipping.

    Is T-Mobile trying to drive their customer away?

    Please call (at the number above) and write to customer relations (at
    the address below) to complain about this absurdity. Customer relations
    doesn’t take phone calls and I can’t find an email address for them.

       hahahahahah sir, the iphone was raped by the galaxy nexus, then the galaxy nexus got raped by the evo 4g lte and then the samsung galaxy s3 raped the evo 4g lte, which means the galaxy s3 is the best phone out there, it’s the king. iphone 4s is going to be replaced by the iphone 5 soon (no later than october) so it’s up to you to wait for the 5 and see if it’s going to beat the galaxy s3 or just get the galaxy s3. you could also consider the htc evo 4g lte if you’re a sprint customer, there’s not a big difference except for the Ram which is 1GB greater on the S3. I would suggest that you don’t get the iphone because you will regret it 3 month down the road when the iphone 5 come out but if you get an android such as GS3 or EVO then you won’t regret it. GS3= 1.5Ghz Dual Core, 2 Gb of Ram, 8MPX Cam, 1.9 MPX(720p) Front Cam, 2100 mAH Battery, 4.8inch screen, 720p HD super amoled screen (1280×720) 306ppi….Evo 4g lte = 1.5Ghz Dual Core, 1 Gb of Ram, 8MPX Cam, 1.3 MPX Front Cam (720p), 2000mAH battery, 4.7 inch screen, 720 HD Super LCD 2 (1280×720) 312 ppi. Iphone 4s = 1Ghz Dual Core,  0.5 Gb Ram, no hd display, 8 mpx camera, 1.3 mpx front camera, 1420 mAH battery, 960×640, 326 ppi. Obviously the iphone 4s fails miserably against the two and a lot of other android devices. anyway, hope it helps

    I LOVE IT. The best phone just got better. S2 is the best phone hands down right now. Only bunch of idiots think icrap 4s( s stands for “SAME”, LOL)is even a match. insted of reading bunch of benchmarks that have been paid off by apple, why don’t you guys to to Best Buy or a phone store and play with Samsung s2 yourself and then be the judge of that. DO NOT TRUST ANY APPLE PAID BENCHMARKS. My samsung s2 will eat apple any day, there is no compereson. Samsung is #1 and apple is 10TH or lower. Samsung is blazing fast with a beautifull screen.
    ijuck4s comper to SAMSUNG s2 or even HTC evo 3D 4g
    can’t take the battery out yes battery come out on both
    800 duel core (SLOW) 1.2 duel core( FAST)
    small screen nice and large screens, HTC 3D
    led back light super OLED lights(NICE), LED on HTC
    3g ( no Icrap has 4g yet LOL) 4g on both phones
    can “NOT” add external momory you CAN add external memory
    8pix camera(copy from HTC and Samsung) 8 pix camera, HTC 8pix 3D camera

    Need i say more? APPLE SUCKS.

    These are just a few things that so called apple paid benchmark people leave out. Like i said NO MATCH. that is why Samsung is #1 in the world. Not everyone is dumb and stupid in this world and get fooled by apple and their lies and their stupid marketting.

    I gave the Galaxy s2…and WHAT A PHONE. Never had Apple before, so i cant comment. What i CAN say though, is everytime i “upgraded” to a new phone ( Nokia’s all of them ), i had an issue within the first 2 weeks. With THIS Samsung S2, with all honesty, can say i had NO probs. What i DID notice however, is that a lot of guys ( especially kids ) like to play around with different versions of the OS that sometimes is a “faulty” or “buggy” OS-version ( happened to me though ). With the current ICS 4.0.3 XXLPR, i have NO problems what so ever. If you are a business man like myself, S2 ( or this S3 ) is the way to go…If you want to play games, get a PC 😉

They have the worst apps, this new samsung s3 has siri except it has a different name. samsung will get sued again by apple, and this phone will be banned just like the samsung 10.1 and the samsung galaxy s. Choose what you want, Apple is the win, with great customer support. If you choose samsung, it will be crappy, and you will be stuck with it for 2 years. Samsung always copy apple, and if you want to be legit, get the iphone. Iphone 5 will pown this samsung mijjir’s ass.

      ironic considering how my friends with iphones constantly ask to borrow my galaxy s (not even galaxy s2 for the matter) to use because they enjoy using my apps and using my 2G network (not even 3G). Add an “i” to anything and apple fanatics go crazy over it. I’ve never had to call customer service for my phone because it has worked wonders for the last two years (it’s not a question of getting stuck with it, it’s more of a question of why I chose to keep it for 2 years, because it has not yet failed me when i need it), but according to my phone, customer service is always polite and help her through her problems. I’ll be switching to the new S3 by the end of this month once my contract ends and I for one can’t wait. Go to any college lecture and look down. Out of 400 people, 200 of whom are playing on their cellphones, you would see that the majority of them are using galaxy’s. So to be legit only because of a brand or to be legit because I actually have a pretty awesome phone? Hm.

That’s why Apple is trying to hold up the next release in court with a series of frivolous lawsuits! You sound so Iphone biased…LOL!

    I’ve had my iPhone 3GS for just about two years now and the contract is about to end… Thankfully !

    The camera is rubbish, multi-tasking is rubbish, it cannot (and never will) display flash-based web content, Bluetooth doesn’t work with PC for file transfers, they secretly tracked customers movements until someone doscovered the database (why?) and STILL you can only reset it – not disable it, and most of all… Apple are hell-bent on stifling technological advances from the competition if they don’t get a slice of the pie.

    Quite franky, I’m sick to the eye teeth with Apple and their greedy walled garden and patent hypocrisy, so time for me to move up to Android and enjoy the freedom and functionality that so many envied friends and colleagues now enjoy.

    My partner had the same 3GS and quite literally hates it for some of the reasons I mention, so has just ordered the Galaxy-II. By brother, having owned the 3GS and 4, bought the S-II a couple of days back and absolutely LOVES it. I will await the S-III and tolerate the iPhone for a bit longer in anticipation of a release in the very near future.

    Well done Samsung – Fabulous TV’s and monitors, and now phones. Long may you reign !

    Sadly enough I read a post somewhere else today that the much anticipated Nexus Prime is infact turned out to be the Samsung Droid Prime, sporting a 4.65″ Screen. It will be the first to run ICS and will only be exclusive to verizon he3nce the DROID name

    • Billy

      October 26, 2011 at 10:11 am

      A Samsung rep today said the company would launch the Nexus on Verizon in the U.S., but later retracted that statement saying nothing has been officially confirmed.

      Analysts have speculated for a while and still expect that the Nexus will be offered on Verizon’s network at the time of its release, but other carriers now appear to be in the mix. Samsung said during the unveiling of the device that it would come in both HSPA+ and LTE versions.

      The HSPA+ version would be the best for T-Mobile’s network while the LTE versions would likely land at Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. However, Samsung may also be manufacturing the two different versions of the device for carriers overseas.

      Samsung and Google’s Nexus availability on all major U.S. carriers would make the device a legitimate competitor against the Apple’s iPhone 4S. The Nexus will take on the iPhone on whatever carrier it’s offered on, but the device likely won’t challenge the 4S’s overall sales numbers if only Verizon carries it.

      Google’s release of its flagship Android device on multiple carriers at launch would be uncharacteristic for the company, although it may benefit sales. The HTC Nexus One first launched for T-Mobile and was supposed to eventually come to Verizon and Sprint, but the carriers later scrapped those plans. AT&T also offered the device, but only at an unsubsidized price.

      The Nexus S, the successor to the One, also launched on T-Mobile, before coming to Sprint with a 4G upgrade.

      Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus launching for Verizon would mark the first time the carrier offered Google’s flagship Android phone, but it may not have the exclusive on the device for long, and may even have to share it from day one.

    • Tom

      September 13, 2011 at 7:53 am

      In my opinion a phone is a phone, all phones will have some similarity on the exterior design and that’s normal. It’s fine to me and I don’t agree galaxy is copying iphones exterior. Look carefully and you can tell tons of differents between them. My advise is don’t get cheated by rumor. Listen to your heart and be decisive to get only what you want. After all you should pay for what you like and not other people like.

      • DJ

        October 22, 2011 at 7:11 pm

            GPU aside, it will still be sitting with a dual core. The s3 will certainly surface with a quad core CPU + a decent GPU that can handle all the android 3d games perfectly. The iphone 5 will most likely house the chip found in the new ipad. Since they have not been able to solve the overheating issue on the new ipad, I doubt they will make it a quad core CPU + quad core GPU cause that would mean the device catching fire. S3’s 1080p 4.7 inch super amoled plus alone is the reason to get it over the iphone.

            thats because it isnt as good. therefore it has less to think about so it can concentrate on a few things in comparisont eh the GS2’s many. its like a man: nit cant multitask so it doesnt even try. try playing music while surfing the net on it and it just dies. the iphone is crap. itll be a relief for samsung when the I5 comes out so even more people will end up buying a second phone, ie. a galaxy S3 within a few months of the i5.

            I have to disagree about the S2 being so great, I had an iPhone 3g, nice little phone got it just as the 4 was coming out so not the most powerful but never had a days trouble with it. I upgraded (apparently) to the S2 on contract renewal and it is the worst phone I’ve ever used. I haven’t had it a full year yet and am on my fourth replacement. Each one has the same problems….overheating to the point of not being able to keep it in a pocket, cutting out, random crashing, losing audio, drops signal to name a few issues. The latest one has nothing but my contact list on it, defeats the point of a smartphone if it can’t actually support/run apps without crashing.

            I have limited experience with the iPhone 4s but have run comparisons with people at work and iPhone beats my lump of crap hands down any day. Can’t wait to get out of contact and go back to a decent bit of technology that doesn’t have a hissy fit every time it’s used

            I too had an Apple 3gs and upgraded to Samsung S2. My results are exactly opposite. I did not choose Mobile Me so support after 3 months is non-existant. My battery life always sucked and before I had had the phone 2 years, I was charging the phone 2 or 3 times a day. I was advised by the people at AT&T to do a master reset and that not only wiped out my music files and applications, and corrupted those files on iTunes so that they could not be restored. I got my S2 7 months ago and have had no major issues. The few minor problems I’ve had have been resolved through AT&T technical support. I love the back button and task manager. Like any smartphone, the battery doesn’t last forever; but I have a back up battery. They’re are a few things that I preferred with the iphone; but, for me, the S2 does everything my iphone could and some things better. I also have an iPad if I need an Apple fix.

            I traded in my Samsung Galaxy S. Nothing but issues, email troubles and constant “ForceClose” It was also had terrible quality and felt like a large chunk of plastic. My new iPhone 4S is far superior, faster, smoother and completely reliable. It works seamlessly with my other equipment. It is also incredibly built and feels like a substantial piece of equipment in my hand. Apples ecosystem is also far superior. After using the 4S I would never go back to Android.

        The Samsung Galaxy S3 really rocks, it will be the best from samsung and something strong to stand against iPhone and HTC.
