Beware, Samsung does not reinvent the wheel with the Galaxy J2 Pro. Nokia had, last year, reissued its famous 3310 for those who wanted to keep only the main features of a mobile phone, namely to call and send SMS.
Students and seniors, same fight
If the Galaxy S9, Note 8, or A8 2018 are primarily intended for average consumers, Samsung is targeting students and seniors, with the J2 Pro. The latter allows you to call and send a lot of text messages, but has no way to connect to WiFi or a 3G / 4G / LTE network. A perfect phone for students who do not want to be distracted by the wonderful world of the Internet, and all seniors who do not have the utility of an armored data phone plan.
The Galaxy J2 Pro, however, has a 5MP front camera and 8Mpx dorsal. On the app side, the owners will find an English dictionary, a calculator, a calendar and a radio.
In terms of hardware, the phone has a quad-core processor of 1.4 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of memory, a battery of 2600 mAh and a MicroSD port. All resting under a 5-inch AMOLED QHD display.
For now, the J2 Pro is exclusive to the South Korean market. Sold 190 dollars, it is also the subject of an exceptional promotion. Students who acquired the device, and passed the 2019 or 2020 editions of the exam suneung (a national exam that determines university entry), will be eligible for a drawback if they redeem it for a Galaxy Note, S or A released after 2018.
