SK Telecom and Samsung unveil the Galaxy Quantum 3, the world’s most secure 5G smartphone featuring IDQ’s QRNG chip
SK Telecom (NYSE:SKM), Samsung Electronics and ID Quantique (IDQ), the world leader in quantum-safe security solutions, have worked together to release the ‘Galaxy Quantum 3’, the third Samsung smartphone equipped with quantum technology, designed to protect customers’ information.
In this new phone, IDQ’s QRNG chip enhances the security of a large number of services provided by the operator. Quantum random Number Generators protect the process from log-in/authentication/payment/unlock/OTP generation of service apps ranging from financial apps to social media apps and games offering a much higher level of trust to the users. The QRNG is also used to encrypt data stored in the external memory card.
In addition, for the first time in the series, ‘Galaxy Quantum 3’ offers a differentiated security experience to customers by providing a ‘quantum indicator’ on the status bar so that customers can realize that they are using a quantum security service.
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
