Samsung and SK Telecom launched the Galaxy A Quantum in South Korea today. It is the world’s first 5G smartphone with a quantum random number generator (QRNG) chipset, and it is exclusive to SK Telecom’s network. The Galaxy A Quantum is a rebranded Galaxy A71 5G, and it is priced at KRW 649,000 (around $530). The Samsung Galaxy A Quantum will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow. The phone will go on sale in South Korea from May 22. Those who pre-order the phone will be eligible to get the Galaxy Buds for free.
Samsung Galaxy A Quantum features a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution and in-display fingerprint reader. It has a quad-camera setup on the rear, consisting of a 64MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide-angle camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. At the front, the smartphone has a 32MP selfie camera. The phone features the SKT IDQ S2Q000 QRNG chipset that was developed by SK Telecom’s Switzerland-based subsidiary ID Quantique. The SKT IDQ S2Q00, which is the world’s smallest QRNG chipset (at 2.5mm x 2.5mm), uses an LED and a CMOS image sensor. It creates truly random numbers with unpredictable patterns. The CMOS image sensor is used to capture the quantum randomness from the image noise that is emitted by the LED. The QRNG chipset enhances the security of various applications such as SK Pay, T ID login, and Initial. Further, the handset is powered by a 4,500mAh battery and supports 25W fast charging.
