New Galaxy smartphone can't go online because Samsung's thought of the children

Korean technology giant Samsung thinks that being able to connect to the internet isn't a skill required for its latest smartphone.

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. The exam is seen as vitally important and can have a massive influence on the rest of a student's life. However, in the J2 Pro is no modules support 2G or 3G and can not connect to Wi-Fi networks.

Samsung's press release (Google translated) says the phone "blocks mobile data such as 3G, LTE, and Wi-Fi" with the intent of helping students focus on learning (instead of, you know, getting distracted by Instagram and stuff).

The Galaxy J2 Pro is essentially a barebones smartphonr.

The rear also gets a major makeover - the dual camera module is pushed to the edges, like an iPhone 8 Plus - this is the first time a Samsung phone's rear panel has seen the complete abandonment of the traditional "centre-aligned" design. 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.

Also included are an FM radio, a DioDic4 English dictionary app, a calculator and a calendar app. If you want, you can even opt or a data plan that limits how many texts you can send.

There is a 5-inch QHD AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM.

Huawei's recently announced P20 Pro also features a 4,000 mAh battery with this latest device being applauded in reviews for its ability to last long into a second day without needing to be charged.

The smartphone is available in Gold and Black colours. The smartphone is powered by Android.

Target audience "smartphone" - local students who are trying to avoid a dispersion of attention because of the Internet.
