Samsung Galaxy S III Gets Exclusive Cloud Services, Music Hub, Games Hub and More

May 4, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

After a heap of rumors, gossips and over the roof guess-works, Samsung Galaxy S III is now real and official.

The device, with a 4.5 inch HD Super AMOLED display and a quad-core Exynos processor, has itself packed with more than just excellent hardware specs.

In a move which looks similar to that of Nokia’s tactic with the Lumia line, Samsung has also announced special services and features exclusive to Galaxy S III in order to stand out from the clutter and competition of other Android devices.

The extra services Samsung announced on stage of the S III official release include a bunch of cloud based ‘hubs’ for music, games and videos and a S Health app.

The S Health app is to look after the personal wellness of the lucky guys who are going to get their hands on this cute device hot from the stores.

But Music Hub, from the primary details, seems like a Samsung competitor for Apple’s iTunes. The enhanced Music Hub service is cloud based and gives access to over 17 million tracks to its users.

The service which is similar to existing services like Rdio and Spotify also offers a scan and match feature which reminds us of the iTunes Match feature.

Music Hub will first hit seven countries but the Scan and Match feature will be available for only six of them in the beginning.

Music Hub has got company in the form of a Games Hub and a Video Hub where the former brings in games including social gaming while the latter is about TV and movies.

The news also points out that MirrorLink support and NFC features are also part of the package. Aren’t you thrilled about your next Samsung phone?
