Samsung's third generation - GALAXY S III - is now available in Malaysia with features that include enhanced voice functionality, said the company.
Speaking on May 28 2012, Samsung Malaysia Electronics managing director, Kwon Jae Hoon, 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."
"With the introduction of the Samsung GALAXY S III, we are confident that Samsung will surpass the success of the Samsung GALAXY S II which sold 20 million units globally since its launch last year," said Kwon, adding that the new device could 'detect your face, voice and motions.'
"The Samsung GALAXY S III listens and responds to your words as well as your motions to offer maximised usability," he said. "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."
Weighing 133 grams and measuring 8.55mm thick, the Samsung GALAXY S III is the first device featuring a quad core application processor, according to Kwon. "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. As a leader in display technology, Samsung's state-of-the-art innovation is further reflected in the device's heritage Super AMOLED display that has been enhanced to include HD wider viewing angles on a 4.8 inch display."
