Innovative new features added in Galaxy smartphones - Samsung Electronics had launched industry first S-bike mode, a dedicated bike mode that lets consumers 'ride tension free' while encouraging responsible riding. This was based on the insight that two-wheeler riders receive a lot of unimportant calls and notifications while riding. The S-bike mode’s urgent call alert system notifies callers through an automated answering machine that the user is riding and is unavailable to take calls. However, callers have the option to press 1 in case the phone call is urgent. As a safety feature, the in-built motion lock ensures that the rider has to come to a halt before they can answer the call.
