Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III (S3) Launch in Malaysia!

Hi, third generation of Galaxy S.

On 24 May 2012, Samsung Malaysia Electronics (SME) has officially launched the latest Samsung Galaxy S III at One World Hotel, Petaling Jaya. I'm one of the lucky ones to get a first-hand experience on this sleek, mighty not-the-ordinary mobile phone.

Mr. Kwon Jae Hoon, Managing Director of SME Sdn. Bhd. has introduced this new device as a best-in-class smartphone which is:

  • Intuitively simple
  • Effortlessly smart
  • Designed for humans
  • Inspired by nature
  • Leads you to an extraordinary life!

MC of the night, Wan Zaleha. 

Being a Samsung supporter with my little Samsung S Plus, I discover that the new Galaxy S3 is simply amazing with its huge screen size of 4.8 inches (with Super HD AMOLED) and thickness of only 8.55 mm! The best thing is yet to come--- It is the first device featuring quad core application processor. Now there's no more hassle of phone lagging with applications running slowly.

 Both product directors did the live demonstration on how to use this phone smartly. 

Here are some of the features which I personally find it pretty cool:

#1 "Burst Shot"

The phone will captures continuous shots, and selects the best 8 photographs to ensure a more enhanced camera experience. With 8MP camera featuring a zero-lag shutter, now you tell me how GOOD your pictures will be!

 #2 All-Share Cast

I can now share screens among multiple users on the same Wi-Fi network and enjoy doing the same thing together on our own separate devices!

#3 Pop-Up Play

This is the most useful feature I can ever find! I can play a video anywhere on the screen while checking emails, without having to close and restart the videos! 

 #4 S-Voice

Hi Galaxy, I know now you can understand, listen and respond to every word of mine. Like automatically snooze my alarm when you hear me yelling "Snooze", without having me to search high and low just to click on the screen.

 Smart phone, specially designed for human.

 The phone looks especially good in pretty hands.

During the media launch, we were given an opportunity to fiddle around with this new creation. The crowd was so huge and everyone didn't want to leave their hands from the phone!

Now that it is my turn to feel the goodness myself. It is just so smart that I want to bring one home!

Courtesy to Samsung for such brand-new experience. It is really an eye-opening (so literally! lol) event, learning that the new introduction of Samsung Galaxy S III will be Malaysian's No.1 favourite very soon.
