The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro has been launched in South Korea for a price of 199,100 KWR (US$ 190). Irrespective of the price, brand or OS, most smartphones today have one thing in common, and that is the ability to connect to the internet. However, the new Galaxy J2 Pro has launched without this basic connectivity feature. Yes, this is the first modern smartphone, which cannot connect to the internet through 2G/3G/4G or Wi-Fi.

A Smartphone Without Smart Features

The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is designed to restrict its users from accessing the internet. The smartphone is targeted at college students and senior citizens, who usually get distracted by the internet. Not being able to access the internet means one will not be able to install new apps or even update the software on the device. The phone comes with an offline dictionary, which will aid students to learn new definitions without connecting to the internet.

The internet addiction has become common these days, and Samsung appears to have taken it upon itself to fight this. Apparently, the Galaxy J2 Pro will help those who are constantly online to overcome the addiction. Unlike tablets, it does not even have a Wi-Fi connectivity option. As the phone has a micro USB port, one should be able to sideload applications and media files using a computer. Due to unavailability of the internet, this smartphone does not support features like GPS and Maps as well.

The phone has a 5 inch display with a 960×540 px display. The device runs on a 1.4 GHz Quad-core chipset with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB storage. Additionally, the smartphone also has an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. However, without internet connectivity, the photos taken on this device are likely to remain on the smartphone’s storage itself.
