The most awaited android phone of the year in the Philippines, Samsung Galaxy SIII is really a jaw dropping device. Okay, not really. But when it comes to features, S3 really provides one of the best among those handsets currently available in the market. As a follow up to the successful Samsung Galaxy S II, a lot of expectations were thrown over this new device. Let us take a closer look below.
The Samsung Galaxy S IIIis presented with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for a fully optimized high definition display. It is powered with a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor, a Mali-400MP GPU, and a 1GB of RAM. Other worth noting features are the 8Megapixel main camera with LED flash, 1.9Megapixel front-facing camera, and LTE connectivity. The TouchWiz UI from Samsung is still alive and kicking in this handset together with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich which takes care of the great user interface rendering and overall performance. Here’s the official video demo from Samsung.
