Samsung Galaxy J3 is the new budget smartphone that comes with an interesting Sbike mode

Samsung Galaxy J3, priced at Rs 8,990 has been announced by the company and will be available only on Snapdeal.

The phone has a special S-Bike mode to ensure safety of those using mobiles while on a motorcycle. Galaxy J3 is the first Samsung phone to come with such a feature, which company says was developed entirely by its R&D team in India, the second largest for the company after South Korea.

“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,” said Asim Warsi, Senior Vice-President, Samsung Electronics.
