The wait is officially over and Samsung has released the new Galaxy S III phone. This cell phone is sure to make Samsung a contender in the smartphone major players arena and give iPhone 4S a run for its money. It should be noted, however, that Samsung has become the number one smartphone brand, overtaking Apple in first-quarter sales. One of the reasons why Samsung is poised to do just this? Because the Galaxy S III is one phone that knows your face.
Face and Voice Recognition
The newest Galaxy cell phone has both face and voice recognition features that consumers will surely love. The company is billing it one of the first phones truly “designed” for human use. The voice recognition is tailored to the user’s voice and the face recognition is actually eye recognition, which for security purposes users are going to go crazy for. The cool thing about the voice recognition is that users are able to wake up their phones by using a simple pre-programmed command. Even better, the phone recognizes Facebook friends in images taken with the phone and asks the users if these photos should be shared.
The new Samsung has a slew of additional features that make it stand out in the cell phone crowd. These features include a 4.8 inch display as well as an eight megapixel camera. The Galaxy S III of course runs Android, so this is a premium opportunity to upgrade from your old Android smartphone. You might consider selling it, getting back some cold hard cash and then upgrading to the new Galaxy to take advantage of the numerous bells and whistles.
Price for the new phone, which will launch at the end of May, have not yet been announced. However, there are enough Samsung devotees out there that won’t care what the price is just to have a crack at what is cutting edge smartphone technology.
