Samsung has today announced their next generation Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S III. The phone comes with an impressively large 4.8″ screen, continuing the recent trend of Android smartphones to have increasingly large screens. The display does come with an impressive 720p resolution, however, which is one of the largest seen on a smartphone today.
The phone also features a 8-megapixel camera, a 1.9-megapixel front facing camera, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, NFC, and a 2100 mAh battery, rather large for a smartphone.
The phone comes with some impressive tech that will actually track the eyes as the scan the screen in order to change the brightness of the screen to mantain a “bright display for continued viewing pleasure”. It also comes with what I’d argue is the closest thing to a Siri clone to grace the market. Also included is a “quickbeam” feature, which allows users to transfer up to “1GB in 3 minutes”, as well as “pop up play”, which sounds similar to picture in picture.
The Galaxy S III will also come with a new customized Android user interface,, meaning that this will follow in it’s older brothers’ footsteps and won’t grace it’s users with a completely stock Android interface.
Pricing and availability has yet to be revealed, however Samsung says to expect the handset within the coming months. The Verge has also revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be coming to US carrier Sprint “this summer”.
