With these two new devices, Samsung is going big with its S features – S Power planning and S Secure. The S Secure feature enables users to lock and hide their apps, protect Wi-Fi and form a separate Secure folder for photos and apps. In contrast to the S Secure feature, the S Power Planning focuses on saving battery life so that the device could last longer. It reserves plenty of battery for taking calls, and it also forward calls to another user-selected number whenever the phone is on low battery. Interestingly, both the new S apps have been developed at Samsung’s India R&D center.
