New Samsung Galaxy Phone Has No Online Connectivity


There are a couple of capacities that now come as standard in current cell phones; one of them is having the capacity to go on the web. Be that as it may, proprietors of Samsung’s new Galaxy J2 Pro wouldn’t utilize it for web-based social networking, email, or the web as it does not have any versatile information availability.

The tech giant’s Korea-only announcement says that the J2 Pro “is a product that blocks mobile data such as 3G, LTE, and Wi-Fi, and needs to focus on learning and needs of senior users who are sensitive to data charges. “

The J2 Pro comes with some fairly entry-level specs: a 1.4 GHz quad-core CPU, 1.5 GB of RAM, a microSD slot, a 5-inch qHD (960 × 540) screen, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, and a removable 2,600 mAh battery. While it does have an LTE modem, its only function is for making calls and texts. It also comes with a music app and a radio app, as well as a voice recorder and a Korean-English dictionary.

The target audience for the J2 Pro are teens taking South Korea’s “College Scholastic Ability Test,” or suneung. The exam is seen as vitally important and can have a massive influence on the rest of a student’s life. Teenagers are expected to study for the test for a year, which is where the J2 Pro comes in. Its lack of online connectivity means Korean kids can focus on studying without distractions.

The device costs around 200,000 won, or about $190, which seems quite expensive when you consider some of the other low-end handsets available. However, Samsung is making the J2 Pro an appealing buy for students with a promotion: once someone has completed either the 2019 and 2020 suneung exam, they can trade in the handset for a Galaxy S, Note, or an A-series phone released after 2018 and have the J2 Pro’s cost reimbursed.

Unsurprisingly, it seems that the J2 Pro is only being released in Korea.
