Samsung Galaxy S III

Samsung unveiled Galaxy S III, making its debut in Europe on May 29 and a 4G LTE-optimized version for the U.S. market during the summer.


Some of the cool features on Galaxy S III as lifted from Samsung website are:

S Voice
Why not get a response from your phone? Tell it to wake up! Even better, you can tell GALAXY S III to turn off the alarm for a few minutes and let yourself sleep a bit more. Answer your phone (or reject a call), turn your music up (or down), and even tell the camera when to shoot.

Social tag
Now it’s even easier to keep track of friends and loved ones. Social tag lets you link the faces in your photo album with their social media streams. Once it’s set, all you have to do is look at their pictures and you’ll see their current status appear.

Direct call
Samsung GALAXY S III even knows when you want to talk. When you are messaging someone and decide to call them instead, simply lift the phone to your ear and direct call will dial their number for you. No more fumbling through call logs or contacts. Let GALAXY S III do the work.

Smart stay
With the innovative smart stay feature, GALAXY S III automatically recognizes when you are looking at the phone, whether it is to read an e-book or browse the web. The front camera looks deep into your eyes and maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure. What a bright idea.

Smart alert
When you pick up your phone, wouldn’t it be nice if it let you know what has been happening since you’ve been gone? Samsung GALAXY S III knows you came back and gives you a brief vibrating nudge to inform you about missed calls and new messages. How thoughtful is that?

S Beam
Sharing your content with friends nearby should be easy, quick, and even fun. S Beam lets you bond instantly so you can transfer documents, contacts, pictures, music, videos, you name it. Just put the backs of your phones together, connect, share and enjoy.

AllShare Play
There’s another way to share content on various devices. It’s called AllShare Play, and it lets us work together through the magic of DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct, giving us remote access to documents and multimedia files when we work on a different screen somewhere else.

Buddy photo share
It couldn’t be easier to manage and share your photos. The phone recognizes faces and links those for you, using your group profiles for guidance. Now you’re once touch away from sharing with everyone instantly.

AllShare Cast
Wouldn’t it be nice to mirror your phone display onto a big screen wirelessly? Now you can. AllShare Cast lets you do it, and it’s perfect for gamers. After the game you are playing appears on the screen, you can even use your phone’s buttons as a controller with gestures. No wires, no fuss.
