Samsung Launches Basic Smartphone for Students to Avoid Exam Distractions

SEOUL – South Korea’s tech giant Samsung Electronics launched on Friday a mobile phone model without data access which is aimed at students who want to avoid distractions during university entrance examinations.

The Galaxy J2 Pro is conceived as a basic version of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy range, with different technical features.

The J2 Pro does not have access to the 3G and 4G data networks, although it can be connected to the Internet on WiFi networks. It is also equipped with front and rear cameras and a high-resolution five-inch screen.

The model is targeted at students to avoid exam distractions caused by permanent connection to the network, and elderly people who do not use Internet regularly, according to a Samsung statement.

The phone has launched at 199,100 won ($185) in South Korea, and with a promotional scheme for students which allows them to exchange it for a high-end model after exams finish.

Tens of thousands of students take the exams, usually held in November, to gain admission into the most prestigious universities in the country. The exams are considered so important that South Korea streamlines public transport and deploys law enforcement agencies during the period.
