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 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.
