Samsung's Internet-less phone

Samsung is creating a smartphone which can't connect to the Internet.

The technology giants have been one of the biggest names in smart technology in recent years, with their range of Galaxy model phones taking users online in seconds.

However, in an effort to help break people's addiction to surfing the net, the company has devised the Galaxy J2 Pro, which is a smartphone that goes out of its way to block mobile data connections.

The phone won't be able to connect to wifi networks or have any access to mobile data such as 4G or 3G, but will still boast an impressive memory and decent camera.

Samsung has billed the phone as a device perfect for students and seniors, as it aims to prevent young people from becoming distracted by social media when studying in school, and could help simplify modern living for older people who may find full smartphones too complicated.

To help launch the new device, Samsung are even running a special discount for buyers aged 18 to 21 when the phone launches on June 30.

Despite not being able to connect to the Internet, the specifications of the model aren't too bad, with a 5-inch QHD AMOLED screen, an unnamed quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and a microSD card slot.

The phone also boasts a 5-MP camera in the front and a 8-MP camera in the back, allowing users to take pretty impressive photos provided they don't want to share them on social media at the click of a button.

Samsung's Galaxy J2 Pro will be available in South Korea in June for 199,199 won (around £130), but according to Gizmodo, it seems unlikely that the device will make its way to the UK.
