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 the internet regularly, according to a Samsung statement. The phone has launched at 1,99,100 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 university exams that are usually held in November. The exams are considered so important that South Korea streamlines public transport and deploys law enforcement agencies during the period.
