The Samsung Galaxy Quantum 2 has built-in quantum encryption



Samsung and SK Telecom in South Korea announced the launch of Galaxy Quantum 2, the second phone from Samsung to feature integrated quantum encryption technology for increased security. This is the sequel to last year’s Galaxy A Quantum.

Quantum 2 includes a chip developed by ID Quantique, which claims to be the world’s smallest quantum random number generator (QRNG) at 2.5 mm2. It works by capturing random noise with LED light and a CMOS image sensor. According to SK Telecom, the QRNG chip “allows smartphone owners to use services that require security more safely and securely by generating unpredictable and truly non-standard random numbers.”

RNG quantum cipher is extremely difficult to crack without comprehensive physical access to a specific device. The benefits would look great to the average customer, but the QRNG chip automatically works with apps that use the Android Keystore API, making the technology more accessible to developers. SK Telecom promotes local compliance with services such as Shinhan Bank and Standard Chartered Bank Korea, as well as with its services such as T World. The carrier says it will work with more services in the future, including credit cards from Samsung.

The phone itself has high enough specifications, close to what I found in a high-end flagship phone a year or two ago. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, a 64MP camera, and a 6.7 inch 120Hz OLED screen.

The Galaxy Quantum 2 version has been approved so far only in South Korea. It will go on sale on April 23rd.
