Natural interactive experience get a good upgrade in the Galaxy S III. It’s Smart Stay function can use the eye tracking technology of the front camera to determine how is user using the mobile phone, and to maintain the brightness of the screen to prevent the screen light off from when user is reading novels, etc..
Galaxy S III is also built-in a Siri-like customized voice recognition system that allows the phone to recognize a variety of commands at any time — as an example, Samsung says you can simply say “snooze” to shut off your alarm when it goes off. In addition, S Voice also has some other features, such as receiving text messages and e-mail.
Galaxy S III also built the S Beam function, and it is an enhanced version of the Android Beam system that launched in Android 4.0 and allows large files to be transferred between phones quickly — a 1GB file within 3 minutes, for instance. Something called “Pop up play” lets the user watch a video anywhere on the screen while continuing to use other apps, good for watching a video attachment without leaving your email.
AllShare media sharing system
Samsung is also enhancing its DLNA-based AllShare media sharing system with a few additional modes. AllShare Cast allows content on the phone to be immediately sent to a compatible display; AllShare Play lets you send media “regardless of the distance between devices,” suggesting that it may route content through the internet to reach its destination. The most intriguing mode may be what Samsung is calling “Group Cast,” which shares your phone’s screen with other users on the same network and allows them to annotate and add comments — good for an ad-hoc presentation with coworkers, for instance.
There’s no word on carriers or pricing, but Samsung says that Europeans can look for the Galaxy S III to launch on May 29th. Specifically, the company says that 4G versions will be coming to North America and Japan in summer — and the US will see it in June.
