The Galaxy S III is Samsung's newest, highly anticipated flagship phone: inspired by nature, made for humans. The specs are unmatched and include a blazing-fast Exynos quad-core processor, and a massive and brilliant 4.8 inch super AMOLED screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. It brings multitudes of new cutting-edge features to the table: Smart stay, S-Voice, Pop-up Play and Direct Call to name a few. Add to that an 8 Megapixel main camera with burst-shot, face zoom and best shot, as well as a 2 Megapixel front-facing camera for video chat and you have an incredibly powerful and beautiful device.
4.8 inch Super AMOLED HD Screen
The S3's screen looks enormous, but the phone fits perfectly and ergonomically in the palm of your hand.
The phone tracks your eyes, so as long as you’re looking at it, the display won’t dim or turn off.
If you're viewing a contact, there's no need to hit call: simply hold the device up to your face and that contact will be dialed automatically.
Samsung’s enhanced notifications center will inform you of what has happened since you last looked at your phone in order of importance.
Burst Shot and Best Photo
The 8 Megapixel camera now offers a 20-shot burst mode and will automatically analyze and choose the best photo for you. You can also snap a picture while recording a video.
Face Zoom and Slide Show
Double tap a face to zoom in; automatic slide show generation zooms in on faces as individual pictures in group shots.
Social Network and Camera Integration
Your Galaxy will automatically recognize your friends in pictures, tag them, and allow you the option to send the images directly to them with the Buddy Share feature!
Samsung and Dropbox are offering 50 GB of free Dropbox storage for two years to hold all of those amazing pictures you're sure to take.
"Hi Galaxy!" Meet your own personal digital assistant. S-Voice allows you to control your phone by talking to it, for those "Turn up the volume" and "What's the square root of 64?" moments.
With just a tap, initiate high speed file transfer between two phones via NFC and WiFi Direct, operating at up to 300Mbps.
Pop Up Play
Play video in a window on any screen! How's that for multi-tasking?
All Share Play and Cast
Share your S3’s screen to a TV, or just use it as a fancy remote control.
