Samsung's Galaxy S III Already Gets 9 Million Pre-Orders
Recently named as the world's biggest smartphone maker, Samsung gets yet another record added to their name, and boy, it's really making a lot of buzz in the phone industry.
According to a report, Samsung has already received 9 million pre-orders of their newest flagship handset Galaxy S III since its initial launch in the first week of May this year.
The latest version of the famous Galaxy smartphone so far has gotten the above figures of pre-orders from more than 100 international phone carriers, and pre-orders are still coming in!
But what makes the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III stand out from the crowd? Well, first off, the device has all the looks, intelligence and social features that you've come to expect from a smartphone. It has amazing and interesting stuff on it including the new super-fast quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos 4 Cortex A9 processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB - up to 32GB of internal storage.
The new Galaxy S III also boasts an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera in the back and a 1.9-megapixel secondary front camera, an AllShare Cast feature, a Smart Stay feature, a SocialTag for face recognition, S Beam media share via NFC + WiFi direct, and a Siri-like nifty feature called the S Voice.
The newest "wonder" phone will be first available in Europe on May 29 and in the U.S. coming June of this year. The device is also expected to be available in select countries worldwide as well.
With all this said, does Apple need to worry about the soaring popularity and record-breaking feats being enjoyed by Samsung so far? Will iPhone 5 or the next version of iPhone top all the hoopla and surpass all the amazing new features of the Galaxy S III? Your guess is as good as mine, but we'll just have to wait and see.
