The official launch of Samsung GALAXY S III in Malaysia

Hi, that's me at the Samsung GALAXY S III media launch yesterday evening at One World hotel, all thanks to Nuffnang Malaysia . I have been waiting to see Samsung GALAXY S III with my own eyes after I watched the awesome live launching at Samsung Malaysia facebook a while ago. Although I am not a very techie person, I am a smartphone end user myself, my family & friends are smartphone user too, and smartphone is definitely one of the topic we often talk about. So let's see what Samsung GALAXY S III is all about?

Front view

I must admit when I saw the shape of the phone over the web, I dont really like it. But when I saw & hold on it yesterday, I must say Samsung GALAXY S III size is perfect for everyone palm regardless of your size. I have a small palm and this phone fits perfectly & comfortably.

Samsung GALAXY S III’s has 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, which allows HD multimedia experiences and 16:9 wider viewing angles.

Side & Back view

Samsung GALAXY S III weights at only 133 grams ( I feel its light for its size! ) and measuring at only 8.55mm thickness. I compared and it is as big as my palm but half the thickness of my finger! Its screen is bigger than larger than its predecessor and sligher a bit heavier, but not much different at 17g only.

At the Samsung GALAXY S III launch, Mr. Kwon Jae Hoon, Managing Director, Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn. Bhd. said, “Designed to be both effortlessly smart and intuitively simple, the Samsung GALAXY S III has been created with our human needs and capabilities in mind. What makes me most proud is that it enables one of the most seamless, natural and human-centric mobile experiences, opening up a new horizon that allows you to live a life extraordinary.”

Designed for humans and inspired by nature, the third-generation Samsung GALAXY S III is a smartphone that recognizes your voice, understands your intention, and lets you share a moment instantly and easily.

And this is Samsung’s latest pride and joy, Samsung GALAXY S III emphasizes on human-centric designs, natural interaction and instant sharing. It's comfortable grip, gentle curves, and organic form deliver a rich organic feel and design.

Inspired by nature, its design concept reflects the flow and movement of nature. The elements of wind, water and light are all evoked in the physical construct of the Samsung GALAXY S III. In its essence, the minimal organic design identity is reflected in the smooth and non-linear lines of the device.

Smart enough to detect your face, voice and motions, the Samsung GALAXY S III adapts to the individual user to provide a more convenient and natural experience. With the innovative ‘Smart stay’ feature, the Samsung GALAXY S III recognizes how you are using your phone – reading an e-book or browsing the web for instance – by having the front camera identify your eyes; the phone maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure.

Equipped with ‘S Voice,’ the advanced natural language understanding, the Samsung GALAXY S III listens and responds to your words as well as your motions to offer maximized usability. If you are messaging someone but decide to call them instead, simply lift your phone to your ear and ‘Direct call’ will dial their number. With ‘Smart alert,’ the Samsung GALAXY S III will also save you from trouble by catching any missed messages or calls; your phone will vibrate to notify missed statuses when picked up after being idle. Currently Samsung GALAXY S III S-Voice supports eight languages which include British and American English, Italian, German, Mediterranean, Latin, Spanish and Korean.

I didn't managed to try this function because there is no connectivity during the launch. I would want to see how different is this from Iphone4s Siri.

Sharing with Merryn has never been easier with S Beam.

Sharing is now easy and instant with the new ‘S Beam’ which allows any large files including movie files to be transferred by simply touching another Samsung GALAXY S III phone, even without a Wi-Fi or cellular signal.

With ‘AllShare Play’, users can be also used to instantly share any forms of files between Samsung GALAXY S III and your tablet, PCs, cameras and televisions regardless of the distance between the devices.

Samsung GALAXY S III is the first device featuring quad core application processor. This provides users with enhanced performance, faster web browsing, seamless multi-tasking, supreme graphics quality, and an instantly responsive user interface on a larger screen.

Me, JunFook & Amelia trying out the front camera, quality not bad!

Samsung GALAXY S III has 8MP camera and a 1.9MP front camera are also included in the device, giving users a variety of intelligent camera features and face recognition related options that ensure all moments are captured easily and instantly. I like the the ‘Burst shot’ function that instantly captures twenty continuous shots, and has the ‘Best photo’ feature that selects the best of eight photographs for us.

Which is your choice of colour?

Comes with 2 choice of colours, The Samsung GALAXY S III is powered by Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and a 2,100 mAh battery. I would definitely want to try out and see how long is the standby hour of this phone.

I can't enough trying out the phone and hopefully I am getting a review unit to try out. I am seriously considering to change my phone to this!
