Jelly Bean and TouchWiz Enhancements
The Samsung Galaxy S® III is now easier, faster and even more beautiful than before. Experience the innovative features of Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean. With new ways to share stories and discover music; camera enhancements for more creative photos; TecTile technology that adds a new level of functionality; and much more. Learn about the Galaxy S III update.
If sharing is your thing, the Samsung Galaxy S® III is your phone. With S Beam, you can share large HD files in seconds - just touch compatible devices back-to-back. S Beam takes full advantage of NFC (Near-Field Communication) and Wi-Fi Direct technology, making it quick and easy for you to share photos, videos, documents, calendars, contacts and more. And you don’t even need Wi-Fi® or a cellular signal.
As much as you like a crowd huddled around admiring your new phone, it won’t be necessary with AllShare® Play. Because now, you can play your music, videos and slide shows on any compatible HDTV or computer for all to see. Go big.
Share Photos Instantly
Share Shot lets you share your photos with up to five friends–as you take them. What does this mean? You don’t have to remember to share later; just share on the spot and forget it. Sharing has never been so much fun, so fast or so hassle-free.
The Galaxy S III goes beyond swiping and pinching. Special motion gestures let you do things easier and more intuitively than ever before. For example, to capture a screen shot, just swipe your hand across the screen. To get to the top of a list, just tap the top of your phone. Or if you're texting someone and want to call them, just put the phone to your ear. It doesn’t get any smarter than that.
Speak, and the Galaxy S III will Listen
S Voice™ responds to your every voice command, acting as your on-board personal assistant to give you helpful, accurate information, dial phone numbers, send messages, open apps and more. It will follow your commands and answer your questions quickly and intelligently. You can tell your phone to wake you up, take a photo, answer a call, send a text message or play your favorite song. In fact, thanks to S Voice, you might never talk to real people again.
Simplify any Task
Samsung TecTiles™ is the short-hand way to operate your Galaxy S III. Just program your “tiles” to automatically handle repetitive actions, like changing settings or performing certain tasks. After that, all you’ll need is a simple tap of your phone. It can launch apps, connect you to Facebook® or Twitter® or share a contact with any NFC-enabled phone.
Memories in a Moment
The Galaxy S III is as powerful as it is stylish. For starters, the camera has 8.0 megapixels and absolutely zero shutter lag, so you can catch memories the moment you press the shutter. Want more? Take up to 20 continuous shots in seconds with Burst Shot. The front-facing camera even has a full 1.9 megapixels, so you can get yourself into the HD action.

The display is so bright and beautiful on the Galaxy S III, you won’t ever want to stop watching. With Pop Up Play, you won’t have to. It’s a picture-in-picture feature that lets you continue to watch your HD videos while you surf the web or check your email. It’s multitasking to the max.
