In London, all of the rumors and crazy speculations were answered by Samsung as they unveiled the smart phone dubbed as “designed for humans, inspired by nature.” Yes, the latest addition to their elite list of phones is soon to be released in the market. And they gave us more treats by letting us take a peak of their latest serving. Let us all welcome the plausible iPhone “killer”.

The Hardware

Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S3 is comparatively larger than the S2. Nevertheless it would still completely fit in your hands. The design and style comes in two colors; marble white and pebble blue. It has slick curves that match to that of a completely molded pebble.

The phone’s big function, having said that, is its 4.8 inch AMOLED screen. The retina display around the iPhone 4S is certainly beautiful, but together with the three.5 inch screen some would undoubtedly crave to get a bigger and wider screen. But despite the huge screen, it really is thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4S.

The Galaxy S3 does that for you, and while it lets you enjoy the crisp and clear details of your phone’s icons multi-tasking is a breeze with its quad core Exynos processor. It also houses a gig of RAM. It would also come in 3 storage size; 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. The rear camera is also improved at 8MP, and what’s even better is its new burst shot picture that can take 3 photos in a second.

New Features and Software

One would always expect that if there’s a new smart phone, the hardware part is always a better version of what’s already out. So, here are the few things, non-hardware, which made us all excited about the Galaxy S3:

It might have been the first or perhaps we’ve just overlooked similar features on other smart phones, but when you tap on the Galaxy S3’s lock screen it will show you water ripples and you’ll hear the sound of water from the phone.

Among today’s smart phones with auto-dim feature, the users would always have problems with it. There are times that your phone dims when we don’t want it to. But with the S3’s “Smart Stay”, it uses the front camera to detect if someone is looking at the screen. If it recognizes a face, it won’t dim.

The unique “Pop up Play” feature is very convenient to those who would want to multi-task between watching a movie clip and reply to a text message.

Also, when you read a text message and you feel the need to call the sender right away you don’t have to look and dial for their number. Just bring up the phone to your ear and the phone itself will dial for you.
