Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) will reportedly release on March 31 with a very interesting “Do not disturb” feature. A new promotional ad is created for the J3, bearing the hashtag #TapKickVroom. The news was revealed by the company on its official website, especially referring to the word “mystery” in it.
Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is seen holding a Samsung handset in his hand and a bike helmet on the other. Samsung’s official site reads, “Watch out for the new smartphone that will change the way you ride.” According to rumors, the new feature will help reduce the number of bike accidents, barring bikers from taking calls while they are riding.
Once you activate the “Bike Mode” option on your handset, your phone will send a text message to callers, telling them that they can try to call again later since the user is driving the bike. This new feature is considered as Samsung’s way of telling bikers to concentrate on their rides and stop worrying about calls or notifications in the middle of road, according to Tech Times.
India Today, however, reports that Samsung is yet to confirm the news, since it is too early to guess what “mystery” the company will unveil at the launch event. Fans can keep track of the special event through Live Webcast, which is expected to be attended by dignitaries, the media and Samsung’s fans.
Other than the purported “Bike Mode” feature, the Galaxy J3 offers a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display featuring 1280 x 720 pixel resolutions. Equipped with 1.5GBRAM, the handset is powered by 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. It has 16GB internal space with expandable 128GB memory via microSD card.
Camera features include 5MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash and the front camera is 2MP. This is a dual SIM phone with 4G LTE support and a 2600mAH battery. The phone boasts a TouchWiz UI architecture build.
