Samsung unveiled today the new Galaxy S3 Android smartphone. It features a big 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1,280x720px. Other features of the Galaxy S3 include 16, 32 and 64GB storage options, 50GB Dropbox for two years, 2,100mAh battery, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera, 1.9MP front camera, 4G LTE, Android 4.0.4 and Exynos 4 Quad 1.4Ghz CPU.
The measurements of the Samsung Galaxy S3 are 136.6x70.6x8.55mm and the weight is 133g. I am not sure if the new bigger size will appeal to as many users. I am pretty sure that the iPhone 5 will not follow. What is interesting is that the camera is only a 8MP sensor. Samsung has put though a lot of photo features into the Galaxy S3.
Samsung has put several cool features into the Galaxy S3. Smart Stay keeps the phone on while you read. The camera is watching your face. S Voice is voice recognition that might become similar to Apple' Siri.
The Samsung Galaxy Release Date for the UK is supposed to be May 28. Other markets to follow.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
