Samsung quoted Vodafone Group as saying pre-orders for the Galaxy S III have outstripped those of any previous Android-based smartphone.

The latest Galaxy phone features a larger screen than its predecessor while having a thinner body. It has more computing power that supports voice commands and an eye-movement tracking feature to keep the screen from dimming. - Sapa-AP
