Last week a picture of the Samsung i9300 was leaked (see this post) and we investigated if it could be the Samsung Galaxy S3. Today new information has been released about the Samsung i9300, and we can confirm it’s not the Samsung Galaxy S3 (as we already guessed), but a mid-range phone called the Samsung Galaxy M.
The Samsung Galaxy M seems like an interesting phone, but it’s not the phone this website is about. So why did we decide to write this post? Because the Samsung Galaxy M comes with some interesting new features, that might end up in the Samsung Galaxy S3!
Samsung Galaxy M
Although the Samsung Galaxy M will be a mid-range phone, it has impressive specifications:
- 1.4 GHz dual core CPU
- 4 inch SUPER AMOLED HD display
- 370 ppi
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
The phone will be available to the public around May (The Galaxy M will be launched before the Samsung Galaxy S3). Since May is just a month away, this phone will probably be introduced in the next few weeks.
What made the Galaxy M draw our attention are some of its new features, which might end up in the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The phones front camera will track your eye movement, as soon as it notices that you are lying down, it will auto-rotate the screen to follow your eye movement. This looks like an interesting feature to us, but wouldn’t this cost a lot of battery power? It will be interesting to see how this really works.
This is a feature that sounds great and one we will use often. When you get a message / whatsapp / email from one of your contacts and you want to call them, you simply put the phone to your ear and it will automatically dial their phone. No longer you will have dial their phone number yourself.
Take a picture with some friends, and your phone will automatically recognize the faces of your friends in your contact list. Want to email them the picture? Your phone will automaticaly add their email adress so you can send it away fast.
Rumors say the Samsung Galaxy M will also have the ability to monitor your heart-rate using add-on hardware. Although not everyone will be interested in this, it’s a smart marketing trick. Why? Don’t forget that Samsung is one of the sponosors of the Olympic Games that will start in just a few months!
The auto-dial and face recognition functions seem interesting and it would be great to see them integrated with the Samsung Galaxy S3
