Samsung introduces Galaxy A Quantum smartphone with Quantum Random Number Generator chip

The Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) chip, in theory, provides data encryption at such a high level that a smartphone cannot be hacked even with a targeted attack, let alone an ordinary mass hacker action.

Samsung, together with the largest South Korean telecom operator SK Telekom, presented the world’s first smartphone equipped with a quantum random number generator. The gadget called Galaxy A Quantum has a quantum chip Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG), which provides data encryption at such a high level that the smartphone can not be cracked even with a targeted attack, not to mention the usual mass actions of hackers.

This chip is capable of creating truly random and unpredictable encryption keys that cannot be picked up for hacking. Unlike conventional information encryption methods based solely on mathematical formulas, physics is also involved in quantum encryption. It uses a light-emitting diode that emits a random photon and a CMOS sensor that reads it. And all this is placed in a tiny chip with dimensions of only 2.5 x 2.5 mm.

So, the Galaxy A Quantum is the most usual Galaxy A71 5G with the Exynos 980 processor.
