Samsung and SKT have come together and has announced a unique smartphone called Galaxy A Quantum. The device comes with built-in Quantum Security (Quantum Random number generator) and 5G capabilities.
The Samsung Galaxy A Quantum houses world’s smallest (2.5 x 2.5mm) quantum random number generator (QRNG) chipset which allows mobile phone users to use a specific service by generating unpredictable and pattern-less pure random numbers.
The handset comes with ID Double login, SK Pay biometric authentication and blockchain mobile electronic authentication service. The Quantum chipset generates random encryption keys used in three services and are passed through encryption-decryption process when date is stored or exchanged (when encryption key is necessary).
To further elaborate, there is a CMOS image sensor inside the chipset which detects the light (photons) emitted by LED light source to produce a random key, which is unpredictable. This random number is provided to T ID, SK pay and initial apps to generate encryption keys.
If you look at the specifications of Galaxy A Quantum, it has 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display and is powered by Exynos 980 processor. The phone has dimensions of 152.5 x 75.5 x 8.1 mm and weighs about 185 grams.
The smartphone houses 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM, which is expandable using MicroSD card. You get an on-screen fingerprint sensor for fast and secure unlocking. A 4500mAh battery powers the hardware and will support fast charging as well.
