The most striking features of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 include its super-sized 4.8-inch high resolution display, its sleek design and 8.6mm thin body. It also features a "natural language user interface" and can track users' eye movements to ensure the screen does not dim while they are looking at it.
Industry analysts are describing the Galaxy S3 as a challenger to Apple's upcoming iPhone 5 - putting Samsung one step ahead of the California-based rival.
"The Galaxy S3 is a real challenger to the upcoming iPhone," Francisco Jeronimo, an IDC analyst based in London, was quoted saying by Reuters. "This is likely be one of the most sold smartphones this year, though the real test will come when the next iPhone is launched."
Samsung sold 44.5 million smartphones in January-March — equal to nearly 21,000 every hour.
