Byte: On Thursday, Samsung unveiled the updated version of its flagship Galaxy smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S III features a 4.8″ display (bigger than the iPhone) with better resolution than previous models. It also includes a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos processor, a big improvement over the dual-core processor in the current Galaxy phones. Key new features include smart eye-tracking software that helps maintain optimum screen brightness, a direct call feature that automatically dials when you put the phone to your ear and a voice control feature.
The Galaxy S III will hit store shelves in Europe this month, with U.S. availability likely to follow later this summer.
