Samsung's new phone that can't connect to the internet has everyone reminiscing about their old Nokias

The ultimate piece of tech.

THE SAMSUNG J2 Pro has launched in South Korea. “Snazzy”, says you.


However, the phone’s catch is that it deliberately has no data connectivity at all. It’s aimed at students to keep them from being distracted by the internet.

Some people reckon it’s a great idea, and that it’ll fly off the shelves as a result of people struggling with phone addiction.

However, it’s not exactly a new or revolutionary concept, seeing as phones initially had no internet to begin with anyway.

Like, is there anything to be said for bringing back Snake? Or perhaps making smartphones where the screen doesn’t crack if you look at it? Just a thought.

What’s next? TV that you can’t pause?! (Probably best not to even joke about that as Samsung have clearly gone mad with power).
