Samsung Galaxy S3 launches with whopping 4.8-inch screen


Samsung Galaxy S3 launches with whopping 4.8-inch screen

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been officially unveiled in London to have a whopping 4.8-inch screen and powered by a quad-core processor set to deliver stunning performance in this Android smartphone. Read on to find out more about what is already being called ‘the smartphone of 2012’!

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is here and we can reveal that it comes with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display and depending on which model you plumb for will have between 16GB and 64GB of internal memory.

Powered by the Exynos 4 Quad processor, it offers incredible CPU and 3D performance while consuming much less power than previous chips. The Samsung Galaxy S3 itself weighs in at 133g and considering the step-up in screen size it’s only 16 per cent larger than its predecessor.

Running Android 4.0.4 you’ll find all the latest software on-board, as well as a host of cool features, such as S-Voice (don’t call it SIRI) and S-Beam, which allows for NFC and WiFi wireless data transfer. You’ll find a pretty standard 8-Megapixel camera on the back, with a 1.9MP front mounted camera suitable for video calls.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is set to come in two colours to start with, there will be the now standard marble white but it will be joined by a pebble blue, for those who are looking for something a little different.

If storage is your thing then you find that the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with 50GB of free storage online courtesy of Dropbox. This isn’t for the life of the phone, rather for the first two years, but which time you’re likely to be looking for an upgrade anyhow.

Pricing has yet to be announced but we can expect to see it ship later this month as the likes of O2 and Vodafone are already getting pretty excited about adding the phone to their rosters.

So, what do you think, is the Samsung Galaxy S3 the smartphone you’ve been waiting for? Does it live up to expectations? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments below.
