Leaked patent shows display notch on a Samsung phone

There is technically an LTE modem in the phone, it's disabled for everything but calls and texting.

Samsung has already started working on the new Galaxy Note smartphone, expected to launch sometime this fall.

That's right, Samsung's new Galaxy J2 Pro (it ain't a "pro" anything if it can't go online) is intentionally created to have no way to go online. It's the most important exam of their lives. However, in the J2 Pro is no modules support 2G or 3G and can not connect to Wi-Fi networks.

Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is right now available in Korea for 199,100 won, in U.S. dollars its price is $185, in pound it is £130 and in AUS dollars it price is 240. Neither is there 2G.

What's more, Samsung says that students who complete the College Scholastic Ability Test - a college-entrance exam taken in South Korea - after 2019 and 2020 will be able to trade-in their feature-lacking J2 Pro for a Galaxy S, Note, or A Series phone.

It is also equipped with front and rear cameras and a high-resolution five-inch screen. There is also a vertical setup that reminisces of the Apple flagship and of course a variant with the usual camera placement for Samsung - in the center. But the rest of the baked-in apps are all business, including a voice recording program and a Korean-English dictionary to help with study.

Just to take it another step further, there are data plans that one can opt for that limit the number of texts one can send.

There is a 5-inch QHD AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM. The Galaxy J2 Pro comes in just two colours - black and gold - and retails for about 200,000 won (approximately Rs 12,000). It is also rumored to pack a 4,000mAh battery and even have an in-display fingerprint scanner. These may seem like useless specifications in today's day and age, but they are pretty good for the type of smartphone you are getting.

Samsung now has zero intentions of letting anyone other than the Koreans play around with the dumb phone but I'm not sure that this mobile phone would have many takers as it is.

Ever you find any smartphone without internet?
