He added that it is an industry-first innovation designed to keep in mind the inherent need of the consumers, especially GenZ, for enhanced privacy when it comes to storage & access of the images, videos, and other content smartphones. 

Previously the Korean tech giant announced that it had started manufacturing smartwatches in India at its Noida facility as its step towards supporting PM Modi’s Make in India initiative.
