Samsung Galaxy Quantum 2 smartphone presented with quantum encryption system (3 photos)


Protecting confidential user datais one of the most pressing challenges for smartphone manufacturers. In May 2020, the unique Galaxy A Quantum smartphone with quantum cryptography went on sale in Korea. The device was released as a result of a partnership program between Samsung and SK Telecom.

South Korea recently announced the start of 23April sales of the second modified model of the Galaxy Quantum 2 smartphone equipped with a quantum random number generator (QRNG). The development of the QRNG chip, recognized as the smallest in the world with overall dimensions of 2.5 × 2.5 mm, was carried out by engineers of the Swiss company ID Quantique. Its work is based on the generation of random codes formed on the basis of light noise from photons emanating from the built-in LED and registered by the CMOS sensor.


Quantum encryption dramatically improvesreliability of storage of user data, such as passwords, bank codes and other information. In the future, it is planned to introduce technology with a QRNG chip for use in IoT devices.

The second generation of the smartphone with quantumencrypted Galaxy Quantum 2 will be released only on the domestic market of Korea. The device will receive a 6.7-inch screen with a Super AMOLED matrix that supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz.


The hardware part will run on an 8-coreSnapdragon 855+ processor and Adreno 640 graphics chip with a frequency of 672 MHz. The amount of RAM is 6 GB, and the permanent memory is 128 GB. The front selfie camera has a 10MP sensor, while the main camera has three sensors with a resolution of 64MP, 12MP and 5MP. Communication in 5G networks is supported.

Autonomous work is provided by the battery4500mAh capacity with support for 25W fast charging. The Galaxy Quantum 2 comes standard with a 15W charger. The smartphone is certified IP67 water resistant.

Starting April 23rd, Korea GalaxyQuantum 2 will retail for 699,600 won (about $ 623). Outside the country, the smartphone may appear under the name Galaxy A82 and will be deprived of the unique QRNG chip that provides quantum cryptography.
