Samsung Galaxy J3 with 5-inch HD display and S Bike mode launched for Rs 8,990

“The Galaxy J3 allows users to ride peacefully without having to deal with calls and notifications”

Samsung has launched its latest budget smartphone dubbed the Galaxy J3 in India today. The phone is being targeted at motorcycle riders as it brings an S Bike mode for a distraction-free ride. Before riding, users can set the phone to a Do Not Disturb mode , which turns off all notifications, unless there’s an important call. If someone calls the rider, a message will be sent to the caller that the person is currently driving. The S Bike mode also has motion sensing features, which ensures that the rider doesn’t pick the phone up without stopping the bike.

Connectivity features include 4G LTE support, dual-SIM slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and A-GPS.

For imaging, the Galaxy J3 gets an 8-megapixel primary snapper with an LED flash. For selfies, there’s a 5-megapixel snapper in the front. It is fuelled by a 2,600mAh battery, which the brand claims can deliver 22 hours of talk time, 14 hours of video playback and 349 hours of standby time.
