Some interesting comments coming from Inform Telecoms research timed to coincide with the latest move from Samsung as they have introduced the third generation of its flagship smartphone brand, the Galaxy S III. According to Malik Saadi of Informa Telecoms, this latest Samsung device belongs to the super-phone category of smartphones which also includes HTC One X, the forthcoming iPhone 5 and LG Optimus 2X – the super-phone market will generate above 50 million units in terms of sales by the end of 2012! Oh and FYI, the Galaxy S III will be branded as the official 2012 Olympics phone.
This about the Galaxy S III according to Saadi… What is unique about the Galaxy S III is the level of intelligence Samsung has created around its embedded features and sensors which takes smartphone innovation into another league. The device’s features are capable of communicating with each other and sharing information, enabling it to react intuitively and automatically to an action taken by the user. For example, the phone can recognise a face in a picture taken with the camera and will associate it with a contact saved in the address book. The phone will then automatically save the picture in a relevant file (e.g. family, friends, colleagues), tag it, and suggest you should upload it to facebook or Twitter. Galaxy S III could, potentially, also cannibalize sales of some of its popular smartphones including Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II, and Galaxy Nexus.
