Samsung Nepal launched the Samsung Galaxy J3 featuring the ‘S bike mode,’ an industry-first dedicated feature for two-wheeler riders that is designed to enable responsible and tension free riding.
Once activated at the beginning of a ride, any caller trying to reach Samsung Galaxy J3 user will be notified through an automated answering machine that the user is riding and cannot take calls so that the ride remains uninterrupted.
“Samsung is constantly in pursuit of meaningful innovations that make people’s lives better,” Pranaya Ratna Sthapit, Head HHP Division, Samsung Nepal, adding that ‘S bike mode’ is a result of that vision. “While studying the consumers’ phone usage behaviour, we realised that incoming calls are a major distraction to bikers,” he said, adding, “We are very happy that we have come up with something that will benefit millions of two-wheeler users and promote responsible riding.”
All the user needs to do is to switch on the ‘S bike mode’ of Galaxy J3 before setting off on the ride, and the smartphone will automatically inform the caller that the user is currently riding bike and is unable to take the call. The caller may choose to press ‘1’ to express urgency to talk with the biker for which the biker will have to bring his bike to
a halt in order to take the call.
Samsung Galaxy J3 is equipped with a 1.5 GHz Quad Core processor and 1.5 GB RAM for easy multi-tasking and fast speed. Samsung Galaxy J3 is priced at Rs 16,990.
Samsung Galaxy J3 provides an immersive experience with a large 5-inch HD super AMOLED screen. Whether you are browsing, watching videos or surfing the web at blazing fast 3G speeds, vibrant colours and the larger display brings life to the content. Excellent contrast ratio produces superior imagery with deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more vivid colours, while the large display facilitates better viewing of multimedia content.
The smartphone comes with a camera that captures high quality, crisp and detailed photographs with its 8 megapixel rear camera with an f2.2 aperture. It also features 5 mega-pixel front camera to provide great video calling and selfie experience. The new smartphone is a great shooter that takes detailed photos that look professional, in-focus, and well-lit.
