If you have been noticing the smartphone market lately, you might realize that Samsung has been missing out on some of the key standard features of a smartphone which other competitors have been providing. In addition to the backlit capacitive navigation feature and sensors which were omitted in the Samsung J Series, Samsung comes up with a phone that is devoid of Internet connectivity. This is the new Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro, their latest phone in the South Korean market, as announced by Samsung Korea in their official blog.
Galaxy J2 Pro – Hardware Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro fulfills all the hardware requirements to classify itself as a smartphone. It has a 5-inch qHD Super AMOLED Display and 1.4GHz quad-core processor. It has a 1.5GB RAM coupled with 16 GB of onboard storage. It has an expandable memory of up to 256 GB using microSD card. It even sports an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. This smartphone can survive on a meager battery of 2600mAh. All these specifications are similar to that of Samsung Galaxy J2 sold in Indian market with the only difference being the connectivity. Yes, this phone doesn’t support internet.
You might wonder what the use of a smartphone is if it doesn’t connect to the internet. The answer you get from Samsung is that their target audience for Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is senior citizens and students. Senior citizens, because their basic requirement is calling and messaging and they can hardly use the phone for browsing. And students, because a lot of time is wasted surfing the internet which distracts them from studies. To offer more help to the students, they have included DioDict 4, an offline dictionary that works without internet. Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro can be rightfully called as ‘Detox phone’ because you can enjoy the latest features without being distracted by the internet.
Besides, to increase its appeal to the students, Samsung plans to give a full refund of the J2 Pro if they plan to purchase a Samsung A series or S series after passing their college. Would you consider purchasing the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro?
