The new Samsung Galaxy S3 was recently unveiled and now the manufacturers have announced that the handset will be the official phone for the forthcoming Olympic games which will be held in London. This means that their will be some limited edition versions of this handset produced especially for the events.
Before consumers start saving their money for one of these models it is expected that the devices will only be produced for athletes who are competing in the games. These limited edition phones will come with the Visa Paywave application pre installed to enable users to make the most of the NFC features that the model boasts. Visa co-sponsor the games and they hope that by the time the opening ceremony begins there will be 140 thousand contactless payment terminals in the UK. This will allow users to pay for goods and services by simply swiping their handset across one of these terminals. Money will then be debited from the users bank account thanks to debit card details being stored on the phone. DJ Lee, the executive vice president of Samsung and the head of their sales and marketing division commented, "The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been created with our human needs and capabilities in mind and is the ideal device to showcase the ease and convenience of Visa's mobile payment application at the London 2012 Olympic Games".
The Olympic Games is not only perfect for companies such as Visa to launch new payment systems but it is also ideal for Samsung to market their new flagship handset. After months of speculation the device was unveiled last week at a major PR event at Earls Court, London. The model boasts some super features which make it one of the leading devices currently available. The handset features a large 4.8 inch Super AMOLED screen which offers a very high resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Anybody who is planning on visiting an Olympic event and is lucky enough to have a Samsung Galaxy S3will be able to capture superb still images and video footage. The handsets offers an 8 mega pixel camera and Full HD 1080P video capture. Users even have the ability to take a photograph while recording a video clip at the same time.
The new Samsung Galaxy S3 is a feature packed new model that is sure to become one of the leading handsets on the market. The London 2012 Olympic Games is the ideal platform to promote the phone as well as introduce consumers to some of the excellent new contactless payment options that are available.
