The guys over at O2 Guru TV have been checking out the Samsung Galaxy S3. Presenters Nicola and Maddie went along to the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 event held in Earls Court, London.
The S3, which will be available soon on 02, comes in a choice of either “Pebble Blue” or “Marble White”. The phone packs a punch in the display department, with a 4.8″ HD Super AMOLED 1280×720 display and a super slim bezel edge. The s3 comes in at just 8.6mm thick and weighs only 133g.
The phone comes complete with an 8MP auto focus camera with an array of useful features, such as burst shot, buddy photo share and best photo. This latter feature makes sure you never miss a smile or catch someone blinking. It works by automatically taking a burst of eight pictures, making a continuous scene, and will even choose the best one for you.
In addition to the main camera, which can also shoot video in full HD 1080, the Galaxy S3 has an additional 1.9MP front facing camera which is obviously ideal for things video calling.
Following a trend in new smartphones, the S3 comes with a voice recognition system they call “S-Voice” which enables you to do things like setting (or turning off!) an alarm, answering or rejecting calls and even telling the camera when to shoot.
Another feature on the S3 is ‘Social Tag’ lets you link the faces in your photo album with their social media streams, enabling you to look at their pictures and see their current status.
The power behind the phone comes from Samsung’s very own 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor, partnered with 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
