SK Telecom and Samsung Collaborates With ID Quantique to Release the Galaxy Quantum 3

SK Telecom, South Korea’s largest mobile carrier, and Samsung Electronics have released the Galaxy Quantum 3, the world’s first 5G smartphone equipped with a quantum random number generator (QRNG) chip. The phone incorporates ID Quantique’s QRNG chip to provide secure cryptographic keys for encryption.

The device is designed explicitly with QRNG chips to solve communication devices’ privacy and security problems. ID Quantique‘s Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) chipset ( 2.5mm square) offers more security. It’s a lot more difficult to hack without physical contact with the device. Users can access services and applications with more safety thanks to the encryption function associated with the QRNG chip.

The social media and bank applications on our phones take so much of our personal information, which is not safe. The QRNG chip uses cryptographic algorithms to generate random numbers and patterns for encryption, thereby offering phone users hack-proof security. The data encryption also covers the external memory card in the device.

“the Galaxy Quantum 3’s native integration of the QRNG chip automatically enhances the security of a larger number of services used on the smartphone, bringing applications and services to a new level of security in the mobile phone industry.”

Grégoire Ribordy, CEO and co-founder of ID Quantique

The Galaxy Quantum 3 comes with a new feature different from the Quantum 2 and Quantum A. A quantum indicator on the status bar, so users will be fully aware they’re using a quantum device. An understanding of quantum computing will inform them of the safety the device offers.

SK Telecom is a Korean wireless telecommunication company. With over 30 million mobile customers, they have earned the spot as the largest wireless carrier in South Korea. Their products include AI, wireless telecommunications, and digital infrastructure services. In 2019, SK launched the 5G network, a technology that offers better benefits and speed in telecommunications and has since then continued to bring solutions that impact businesses and human lives.

“We expect that the Galaxy Quantum 3 will become the safest and most reliable device in these days where financial transactions through smartphones are essential. We will continue to achieve innovations to provide customers with more safe and secure services,”

Bong-ho Lim, Chief Mobile Officer (CMO) of SKT.
