India is a top market for Samsung, especially when it comes to affordable handsets and mid-range devices. Right now, the company is teasing an upcoming smartphone for the Indian market that is expected to be announced on the last day of the month. This Android handset targets a very specific category of users, namely motorcycle riders.

Samsung Galaxy J3 is headed for a few European markets and it would not be a complete surprise to see it launching in India as well. However, the Indian version will be focused on changing the way its users ride, as the teaser claims. Sammy Hub unveils that this handset will be loaded with a "Bike Mode" that helps motorcycle riders focus on their primary task by simply muting calls and notifications, as well as providing automatic replies to both messages and calls.

The Galaxy J2 launched in India last year as a low-end handset, so its successor is not expected to be much more expensive, either. Considering this, the "Bike Mode" is also expected to be only an average software/UI feature, without any advanced capabilities or dedicated hardware parts/accessories. The new smartphone for bikers is expected to be a Snapdeal exclusive handset. We will get back to it as soon as Samsung makes it official, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
