Samsung announced the Galaxy Quantum 2, successor to the Galaxy A Quantum exclusively in the South Korean market. A long tease of the pictures and specification buzz by the Galaxy Quantum 2 finally received an official launch in association with SK Telecom. There are few things responsible for the buzz emerging in the market.
The Galaxy Quantum 2 might launch as Samsung Galaxy A82 5G in the global market. This particular assumption is based on the fact that the device holds a model number SM-A826. While the Galaxy A Quantum was announced as Galaxy A71 globally, rumours are marching in abundance that Galaxy Quantum 2 might be Samsung Galaxy A82 following the product lineup globally.
The second reason for the buzz in the market is due to the Galaxy Quantum 2 comprises of a chip developed by the company—ID Quantique—claimed to be the world’s smallest quantum random number generator (QRNG) sizing just 2.5 mm square. The chip is said to capture random noise with an LED and a CMOS image sensor. The Galaxy Quantum 2 is the second to be equipped with the feature (Galaxy A Quantum being the first) of built-in quantum cryptography technology in order to increase security in apps such as mobile banking. SK Telecom mentioned the QRNG chip “allows smartphone holders to use services that require security in a more safe and secure manner by generating unpredictable and patternless true random numbers.”
“The Galaxy Quantum 2 includes more quantum-secured applications than ever before, bringing applications and services to a new level of security in the mobile phone industry,” said Grégoire Ribordy, CEO and co-founder of ID Quantique.
On the one hand, the QRNG chip is considered to be extremely rigid to hack until unless explored to physical access to the particular device. While on the other, the benefits of the system might be overlooked by most consumers. Meanwhile, the chip is automatically beneficial for the app that uses the Android Keystore APIs making the technology more accessible for developers.
“With the Galaxy Quantum 2, we have successfully expanded the application of quantum security technologies to a wider variety of services including financial and security services,” said Han Myung-jin, vice president and head of marketing group of SK Telecom. “Our efforts will continue to keep expanding services that are safely and securely provided via the Galaxy Quantum 2.”
