This handset for India-based motorcycle riders is now finally available for purchase via Snapdeal, for a price of roughly $135 USD.

Just as expected, the handset for motorcycle riders that launched earlier today is the Galaxy J3. Originally unveiled in China last year and also available in the US via Boost and Virgin Mobile, this handset reaches the Indian market as a Snapdeal-exclusive device.

Samsung Galaxy J3 for the Indian market has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: 1.5 GHz quad-core (no other details revealed yet) 
  • Memory/Storage: 1.5 GB RAM; 8 GB storage and microSD support
  • Display: 5-inch AMOLED multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 8 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, dual-SIM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • Thickness: 0.31 inches
  • Battery: 2600 mAh
  • Colors: white, black, gold

The Galaxy J3 has a plastic case and, thanks to the "S Bike Mode," bikers can automatically reply to incoming calls via pre-recorded messages that are available in 14 different languages. The system uses an NFC tag that can be attached to the helmet or the bike itself and then simply requires a press to enable/disable the bike mode while busy driving the vehicle.

Starting today, the Samsung Galaxy J3 retails for roughly $135 USD on the Indian market.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
