The issue of security has been of much concern among smartphone users. Samsung and South Korean operator SK Telecom have now come up with a phone to address this. The Samsung Galaxy A Quantum is the world’s first smartphone with a quantum solution to increase security.
The Galaxy A Quantum uses a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG), developed by SK Telecom’s Switzerland-based subsidiary, ID Quantique. The QRNG chip used is the SKT IDQ S2Q000. It should increase the security of mobile communication. According to the manufacturers, it does this by generating random numbers based on quantum encryption technology. This, in turn, allows you to create reliable, unpredictable keys.
According to the operator, when a service requires identification and certification, the Galaxy A Quantum will let them use “quantum encryption”. This includes mobile payments.
