Yes, you heard this news right. Samsung has released a new cheap phone at South Korea without any form of internet connection.
The new Galaxy J2 Pro from Samsung Korea is mainly focused on students seeking to avoid Internet distractions. The device is also suitable for older people who find many applications and features in modern smart phones.
Galaxy J2 Pro supports basic phone features such as calls, text messages, and pictures, but it lacks any 2G, 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity. The device will come with an external vocabulary app, Diodict 4, to help students with vocabulary in Korean and English.

Although the press release says nothing about the onboard operating system, the Galaxy sign hints on an Android-equipped device, possibly without any Google apps and certifications.
The Galaxy J2 Pro has a price of 199,100 won (US $ 185) and will be available in black and gold options.
