Samsung J3 with S-Bike Feature launched in India
Samsung has again launched a new budget phone for the Indian market. The new phone Samsung J3 which comes peeped with the S Bike Feature is priced Rs 8,990 and will be exclusively available on Snapdeal. Samsung has an R&D team in India which is second largest after the one it has in South Korea. The India R&D team has come with this first of its kind feature for Samsung Phones and it is with a vision to ensure the safety of the bike riders.
Asim Warsi, Senior Vice-President, Samsung Electronics has rightly stated “We’ve noticed that a lot of our budget smartphone users are the ones who are also most likely to be using a bike. And very often when they are on a bike, they can’t tell whether the call they are getting is urgent. The S-Bike mode is aimed at solving this problem,”
The Samsung J3 comes with an NFC tag which can be attached to the bike. The user can later choose to switch on to the S Bike Mode from the smartphones setting. Once the S Bike mode is activated and come one calls the biker, the caller gets to hear a pre-recorded message which says the user is presently riding a motorbike and can’t take the calls. In case of urgency, the caller has the option to press 1 and the call will go through.Yet one can’t answer the call because a Motion Lock makes sure that the bike is completely stationary before the phone lets you answer.
Apart from the S Bike Mode the phone sports a lot of features that sure to attract consumers .
