Samsung and SK Telecom of South Korea have launched Galaxy A Quantum that comes with quantum encryption technology. The company claims that the phone is equipped with the world’s smallest quantum random number generator (QRNG) chipset that enhances data security on the device. Apart from this QRNG chipset, the newly launched phone is similar to the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G that was launched last month in the US.
SK Telecom said in a post that the QRNG chipset allows users to safely use services like authentication and payments on their phones by generating unpredictable and patternless random numbers. The chipset has a CMOS image sensor that detects photons emitted by LED to generate random numbers that are “unpredictable”.
In this way, the phone generates encryption keys for the services based on the random number provided by the chipset to strengthen service security. “All services go through an encryption-decryption process when data is stored or exchanged, and an encryption key is essential,” SK Telecom said in the blog post.

The newly launched Samsung Galaxy A Quantum features a 6.7-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED display. Under the hood, the phone is powered by an octa-core Exynos 980 SoC paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The storage on the device can be further expanded via an external microSD card.

Apart from this, Samsung Galaxy A Quantum runs on the latest Android 10 with One UI 2.1 at the top.
