Samsung Galaxy Quantum is official in South Korea: is a smartphone that was passed a little under the radar and that no one expected, but it is in fact a variant of the Galaxy A71 5G, presented little more than a month ago, which includes a cryptographic technology quantum.

In concrete terms, in the logic board of the smartphone there is a chip QRNG, or Quantum Random Number Generator, developed by ID Quantique, a swiss company controlled by SK Telecom. The chip, which is called SKT IDQ S2Q000, takes care of generating the numbers to be “very random” from which originate cryptographic keys more difficult to predict and therefore more secure. The question of randomness is quite an oxymoron, in the world of computing (but not only): you can even go to say that there are simply more or less complex to predict, and that the randomness really is almost impossible to obtain. The chip contained in the Galaxy Quantum includes a LED and a tiny CMOS image sensor. The sensor generates numbers on the basis of the light captured from the LED.

The rest of the specifications is completely the same as the model from which it derives, which we summarize briefly below:

  • display: Super AMOLED 6.7″ Infinity-Or 2400×1080
  • processor: Exynos 980 octa-core processor (2x 2.2 GHz + 6x 1.8 GHz)
  • memory:

    • RAM: 6/8GB
    • storage: 128GB expandable up to 1TB
  • sensor for fingerprint integrated in the display
  • connectivity: 5G
  • front camera: 32MP f/2.2
  • four rear cameras:

    • 64MP f/1.8
    • 12MP wide-angle f/2.2
    • 5MP depth f/2.2
    • 5MP macro f/2.4
  • battery: 4.500 mAh battery with fast-charging 25W
  • dimensions and weight:

    • 75,5×162,5×8,1mm
    • 185 grams
  • colors: Prism, Cube, Black, Prism, Cube Silver, Prism Cube Blue

Samsung Galaxy Quantum will be starting from the 22nd of may in South Korea, with a price of 490€ at the current exchange rate. We do not have at the moment no idea if it will be made available from our parts.
