Samsung Offers New Smartphone With No Internet Connectivity


The Galaxy J2 Pro has the bare essentials of a smartphone. You can text and make calls with it and take photos with the 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. There’s also an offline DioDic4 English dictionary app, a calendar app, calculator, and an FM radio. That’s it. And while there’s technically an LTE modem in the phone, it’s disabled for everything but calls and texting. Otherwise, there’s absolutely no Wi-Fi or data to speak of. If you want, you can even opt for a data plan that limits how many texts you can send.

It comes in two colors, black and gold, and costs around 200,000 won, or about $190. The rest of its specs are pretty good: a 5-inch QHD AMOLED display, 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and 1.5GB RAM. It also has a 2,600mAh battery and a microSD slot. Read more.



  1. I am thinking that it could be a Maaris Ayin issue for Bnei Yeshiva. Any way that Samsung could make a flip-phone version?

    • Ha ha ha. Zeyr gut gezuckt.
      I agree that things are getting way out of control, as far as takanos are concerned. This is all to satisfy the naysayers in the sidduch parsha. “This boy/girl is super frum because they only have a kosher phone”. Anyone with a Chase Bank App is a sheigitz and a meturaf who has no chelek in Olam Haba. Yeh right. And then they wonder why good kids are going off the derech. Who the hell wants to marry into such a takana family anyway? Enjoy a miserable life?

  2. Comment Just curious. What makes this a smartphone? Can you install apps just that there’s no browser? Please clarify.
