Samsung's 'distraction-free' J2 Pro can't connect to the internet

Создан смартфон без подключения к Интернету

While it does have an LTE modem, its only function is for making calls and texts.

That's right, Samsung's new Galaxy J2 Pro (it ain't a "pro" anything if it can't go online) is intentionally created to have no way to go online.

South Korea's tech giant Samsung Electronics last week launched a mobile phone without data access which is aimed at students who want to avoid distractions during examinations. The exam is seen as vitally important and can have a massive influence on the rest of a student's life.

Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is right now available in Korea for 199,100 won, in USA dollars its price is $185, in pound it is £130 and in AUS dollars it price is 240.

Broncos Release Running Back CJ Anderson
He had a solid 2015 regular season and postseason that was topped by a 90-yard effort against Carolina in a Super Bowl 50 win. Anderson was informed before the start of offseason workouts Monday that he would be released, multiple outlets reported.

There is no 3G, no LTE, no Wi-Fi, no nothing. Neither is there 2G.

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. There is also a vertical setup that reminisces of the Apple flagship and of course a variant with the usual camera placement for Samsung - in the center.

The smartphone comes with DioDic4 English dictionary app, a calendar app, calculator, and an FM radio.

Just to take it another step further, there are data plans that one can opt for that limit the number of texts one can send.

Mr Johnson said action had to be taken against Syria for the Douma attack during an appearance on The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.

The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) is available in Black, Blue, and Gold color, while Samsung is boosting the metallic finish on the budget smartphone.

As you might expect, this speedier chipset requires more power. The smartphone is powered by Android.

Now the phone costs for around Rupees 21,437 or $185. The company though is running a promotion for students taking the suneung exam. Students will receive a full refund if they upgrade to a smartphone that has internet after the exam is over.
