Samsung has unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S3, at an event in Earls Court, London
The Galaxy S3 specs are also in and now we officially know about most of its features and performance specs. The ones that really got me going are the lovely 4.8 inch display and the introduction of S-Voice and S-Beam.
As one of the most anticipated devices of the year, this device is the first to come with a Exynos 4 Quad processor. It also has Android 4.0, a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 1 GB of RAM, and it is only 8.6 mm thick.

The phone adds useful features that, for instance, can automatically share a photograph you take with people whose faces are recognized, called ‘Buddy Photo Share, or display social media profiles directly on a photograph when those face are recognized. These are features that are useful rather than revolutionary.
An improvement to voice control, called S-Voice, that lets users control their phone using normal, natural language. So it’s like Siri, only it does more – you can say volume up, for instance, and the phone will filter out the noise of the song it’s playing so it can hear you.
So I feel it’s a worthy successor to the globally popular S2 although the device is in many ways much like its predecessor.
