Last year in June 2016, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) got a nominal price cut of Rs 500, but now the price of the smartphone has been further slashed. The Galaxy J3 (2016) which was initially priced at Rs 8,990, is now available at Rs 7,990, making the total price cut of Rs 1,000. The smartphone is exclusively available from Snapdeal and comes in black, white and gold colours.
The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) comes with S Bike mode along with an NFC tag with the phone. All you have to do is attach that NFC tag with your bike (like on the petrol tank) and just before getting on your bike, tap the phone with the NFC tag which will then turn on the S Bike mode. Once activated, callers will hear a message that the person is riding and they can leave their messages for a later reception. The user can choose to leave the pre-recorded messages in various Indian languages.
In emergency cases, the callers can press 1 to alert the biker that he/she needs to stop to take the call. Samsung has specially developed a ringtone for such emergency calls. At the same time, the S Bike Mode activates a feature called “Motion Call Mode” that flashes on the screen of the phone telling the user to stop in order to pick up the call.
Coming to the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) has a 5 inch HD display with Super AMOLED technology which claims to offer 100 more contrast and 40 percent more colour than the TFT display. It has a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 1.5 GB RAM. It comes with ultra data saving mode as well. The Galaxy J3 (2016) has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera – both comes with f2.2 aperture. Further, the smartphone is just 7.9 mm thin.
