Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro Is A 'Smartphone' Without Internet Connectivity

Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro Is A 'Smartphone' Without Internet Connectivity”

So for students studying for a test as important as the suneung, or the national college entrance exam, in South Korea, having a phone that does the bare minimum might be a nice proposition.

However what's interesting is that Samsung has recently announced a new phone in the form of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro, a smartphone that doesn't come with internet connectivity.

The only thing the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro can do is to connect to a GSM network and send/receive phone calls and text messages, while any feature related to the Internet connection is inaccessible. Otherwise, the internet is unavailable on this smartphone.

According to the AnTuTu listing, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini will come with a Snapdragon 660 SoC under-the-hood, which means that the smartphone will be targeted towards a more budget-friendly buyers who want to have a taste of the Galaxy S9 premium series. With the Galaxy J2 Pro, parents can keep their kids confined to the content that they think is safe to watch by loading it onto the smartphone offline. Other than that, the specs of the phone include a 5-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, a 2,600mAh replaceable battery, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. It will retail in South Korea - and South Korea only - for 200,000 won (about $190). To be eligible, students will have needed to finish the 2019 or 2020 suneung.

If you're wondering who would buy such a device, Samsung says it could be used by the elder ones, who would not use the internet anyway, as well as young children, as a measure of protection.
