Samsung has launched the Galaxy J3 featuring the S bike mode making this a first device that has dedicated feature for two-wheeler riders that is designed to enable responsible and tension free riding.
The Galaxy J3 is designed keeping in mind that 70% of Samsung India’s users are entry-level smartphone users and drive a two wheeler.
The core feature of this device is S Bike feature, which once activated at the beginning of a ride, any caller trying to reach the user will be notified through an automated answering machine that the user is riding and cannot take calls so that the ride remains uninterrupted. These pre-recorded messages are available in 14 languages while the user is riding a vehicle.
Remember that this smartphone aims at responsible rides; hence, even if the user picks up the phone to answer the call, he cannot answer the call till the time the vehicle comes to a halt.
“Innovation at Samsung revolves around the consumer as we aspire to bring a complete hardware and software solution. Samsung Galaxy J3 is the first affordable segment device that has been equipped with NFC hardware to activate the S bike mode with a single tap of the device on S bike NFC tag that will be shipped with every unit. The revolutionary S bike mode has been designed in India by our engineers to not only propagate responsible riding which is a concern for both consumers and government authorities but also ensure a tension free ride,” Mr. Dipesh Shah, Senior Vice President, Samsung R&D Institute India.
