Samsung in partnership with SK Telecom has launched a new smartphone that taps into quantum encryption technology for securing smartphone data.

The smartphone called the Samsung Galaxy A Quantum is powered with what the company says is the world's smallest Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) chipset. This chipset helps smartphone users safely use a specific service such as online payments by generating unpredictable and patternless random numbers.

As the company explains, all services go through an encryption and decryption process when data is stored or exchanged. The encryption key is essential for decrypting the data, which makes the overall process safe and secure.

Coming to the specifications of the smartphone, the Galaxy A Quantum comes with a 6.7-inch Infinity-O superAMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is powered by Exynos 980 chipset that is coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space that can be expanded further using a microSD card.

On the camera front, the phone has 32-megapixel front camera and a quad rear camera setup consisting of a 64-megapixel primary sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor, a 5-megapixel telephoto lens and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The phone is backed by a 4,500mAh battery with support for 25W ultra-fast charging.

Priced at 640,000 Won ( 39,300 approximately), the Galaxy A Quantum will go on sale in South Korea starting May 22 in Black, Blue and Silver colour variants.
