Technology giant Samsung has launched the new Galaxy J3 smartphone with the S Bike mode. The smartphone, priced at Rs 8,990, will be exclusively available on e-retailer Snapdeal in India.

The S Bike mode is made for the riders who cannot take calls while riding as it automatically replies to calls with pre-recorded messages in 14 languages. Riders can also mark a few contacts as important, so that they can be notified even while riding. The Galaxy J3 comes with an NFC tag feature, which serves as a call assistant for the bikers.

The Galaxy J3 variant launched in India features dual-SIM support with a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) Super Amoled display.

The handset is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. It packs 8GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB). The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Galaxy J3 features the Samsung TouchWiz UI on top.

The smartphone sports an eight-megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash along with a five-megapixel front-facing camera.

Apart from 4G (with support for Indian 4G bands), other connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and Micro-USB. The handset is backed by a 2,600 mAh battery.

Addressing the media, Senior vice-president, Samsung India Electronics, Asim Warsi said, "The phone is offering specific features built to suit the resonance in several developing markets where Samsung operates."
