Information from official press release:

Dual Camera: It allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. When capturing moments, users can choose from a variety of frame effects which blend the two pictures naturally and also adjust the size of the small picture inside the big one. Users can select 8 different ways to combine the two photos taken by the front camera and the rear camera.

Dual Video Call: It enables you to make and receive a video call with friends and family while showing what you are looking at during the call.

Drama Shot: It allows you to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse

Sound & Shot: It uniquely stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken.

Story Album: Photos taken by the phone are automatically gathered and sorted out according to your timeline, geo-tagging information, or a specific event to create a photo album.

S Translator: It provides instant translation, using text or voice translation on applications including email, text message and ChatON. This instant translation is possible both from speech to text and text to speech and ensures that you can rely on the correct information whilst abroad.

Samsung Smart Pause: It enables you to control the screen by where you look. When you are watching a video, the video pauses when you look away then it starts right up again when you are back

Samsung Smart Scroll: It allows you to scroll the browser or emails up and down without touching the screen. It recognizes your face looking at the screen and movement of your wrist and then scroll the pages up or down accordingly.

S Voice Drive: You can activate commands via voice control for optimization when driving. Once connected with a car Bluetooth, the phone automatically turns into driving mode converting text to speech so you can easily and safely check messages with no need to look at the screen.
