(KoreaHerald) Samsung Galaxy Quantum 3, the latest midrange 5G smartphone powered by a chipset with quantum cryptography technology, is poised to start shipping on April 26 in South Korea, domestic mobile carrier SK Telecom said Wednesday. IQT-News shares the news here.
The chipset with quantum random number generators will allow access for smartphone users to security features for digital activities via mobile apps — ranging from mobile banking to payments, social networks and games — as well as for external data storage.
“These days, smartphones are playing a pivotal role in financial transactions, which makes Samsung Galaxy Quantum 3 the most reliable device in this regard,” Lim Bong-ho, chief mobile officer of SK Telecom, said in a statement.
Unlike its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy Quantum 3 will feature a “quantum indicator,” which shows users whether the quantum cryptography works in the phone.
The new smartphone will retail for 618,200 won ($500) including value added tax.
Moreover, the new phone boasts a 6.7-inch screen, a display with a 120-hertz refresh rate, 8-gigabyte random access memory and a 108-megapixel rear camera.
