Galaxy S III front
Samsung's new Galaxy S III handset has a range of features and a slimline design clearly designed to take on Apple's iPhone 4S at its own game.
The Ice Cream Sandwich-powered smartphone, launched in London on Thursday, is set to go on sale in the UK from 30 May. A 4G LTE version, bound for the US and other countries with 4G services, will launch in those territories in June, Samsung said at the event.
Like the HTC One X and Nokia Lumia 900, the Galaxy S III is shrouded in a polycarbonate shell. The company said it put a lot of thought into the "human-centric" design of the handset and what it feels like to use, which it said were "inspired by nature".
For business users, the handset has a few features that could come in handy: voice commands, file-sharing without the need for a Wi-Fi or data connection, and up to 50GB of free cloud storage via a partnership with Dropbox.
