Samsung Galaxy S III SmartphoneSamsung announced its new Android 4.0 smartphone today at its Samsung Mobile UNPACKED 2012 event in London.
The new Samsung Galaxy S III features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 2100mAh battery, a quad-core processor and front-facing HD video camera. The 8-megapixel rear camera takes several shots at once and selects the best one.

Samsung emphasizes the “intelligence” of the phone, saying it predicts the user’s intentions:


  • Smart Stay keeps the phone’s screen on as long as its front-facing camera senses that your eyes are still looking.
  • S Voice is the voice recognition system, recognizing eight languages. Direct Call automatically places a call to the person you were texting when you raise the phone to your ear.
  • Smart Alert gives you a special notification of any missed calls, texts, or e-mails when you pick the phone up.
  • Face Recognition automatically links to the social media profiles of your contacts that show up in pictures.
  • S Beam technology shares content with other compatible phones by touching them together.
  • AllShare Cast displays the contents of your screen on compatible devices, or any HDMI device with the AllShare Cast Dongle.

The Galaxy S III will be available as a 4G phone in North America this summer, 2012.
