The launch of a new smartphone that is aimed to be offered to students has been launched by Samsung. However, apparently, it cannot connect to the internet.

The new handset is called the Galaxy J2 Pro. It has all the basic uses of a phone. It can be used to call, text, and take photos. However, there is no 3G or 4G or Wi-Fi.

The device is internet-free and is currently only available in South Korea. It will enable students to concentrate on studying without the distractions that arise from engaging in social media and browsing the internet.

The phone comes with a 5-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

The handset also features a DioDic4 English dictionary app, an FM radio, a calendar app, and a calculator.

The Galaxy J2 Pro boasts of a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, a 2,600mAh replaceable battery, and 1.5GB of RAM. The smartphone also has a microSD slot for extra storage.

Samsung’s newest handset comes in two colours – gold and black. It costs 200,000 won (£133).

Samsung is developing a promotion that is aimed at students who are between the ages of 18 and 21 taking the College Scholastic Ability Test – a college-entrance exam that is administered in South Korea – where they can trade in the smartphone for a Galaxy Note, S, or an A-series Samsung phone and have the cost of the J2 Pro reimbursed after taking the test.
