Samsung Galaxy S III officially launched in India for Rs. 43,180
The much awaited Android based smartphone from Samsung has finally reached the Indian market. This is of course the latest flagship smartphone from the Korean manufacturer and it is called the Samsung Galaxy S III. India is not the only country where the smartphone is available as it already launched in various European and Middle Easter countries just before making it here.
The Samsung Galaxy S III will go up against the HTC One X which is already available in the market however it does have some extra features. When Samsung first announced the device in London the company said that it is the first smartphone ‘Designed for Humans’ well it might be true but it definitely is not priced for average humans. Samsung has officially priced the Galaxy S III at Rs. 43,180 which is a little less than the iPhone 4S.
The key features include the new quad-core Exynos processor which is clocked at 1.4GHz and the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI (called Nature UX) which is running on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Apart from the device has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display with a 1280×720 pixels resolution.
In regards to the connectivity the Galaxy S III features Bluetooth 4.0 which helps save up a lot of energy, it includes Wi-Fi, 3G capabilities, NFC, and Samsung proprietary S-Beam technology.
The device also comes with a bunch of pre-loaded Samsung apps and especially a new amongst them is S-Voice which is a voice recognition and assistance tool (like Siri) and it supports eight different languages. Users also get 50GB of cloud storage via Dropbox.
Apparently, only the 16GB variant has been launched in India but good news is that the device supports expandable memory via microSD card of up to 63GB in space, which means users can have roughly 80GB of space on their Galaxy S III.
The Samsung Galaxy S III also includes an 8 megapixel rear camera which supports 1080p full HD video recording and there is a secondary front facing camera with 1.9 megapixel resolution.
Well, the Galaxy S III seems like a slightly over-priced device, however we suggest our readers to wait for the device it hit online retailers as there is good chance you will get better prices. Do let us know if you think that the price is justified.
