Samsung Galaxy A Quantum

The world’s first 5G smartphone with quantum random number generation (QRNG) chipset is now official. Samsung has announced the Galaxy A Quantum in partnership with SK Telecom in South Korea.

The QRNG chipset S2Q000 is developed by SK Telecom’s Switzerland-based subsidiary ID Quantique.

It helps users to safely use services such as SK Pay, T ID login, and Initial. This is done by generating unpredictable and patternless pure random numbers based on quantum crypto technology. It creates strong keys that are not biased and cannot be predicted.

SK Telecom said that it plans to share open APIs on SK Open API website and support technology development for developers. Hence, expanding  the quantum security to more services in the future. 

As for the device, it is basically a Galaxy A71 5G.
