Since Samsung remodelled its ranges to create the A-series, the Samsung Galaxy A models have been counted in dozens. What was not included in the diagrams is a specific model with a quantum generator of random numbers, and that is precisely the basis of the new Samsung Galaxy A Quantum, a new terminal presented in South Korea in collaboration with the operator SK Telecom.
The Samsung Galaxy A Quantum is basically a Samsung Galaxy A71 5G with a new name and a new chip inside. It is a QNRG or quantum number random generator, capable of generating random numbers without any pattern and totally unpredictable.

The most random random numbers
On the outside, the Samsung Galaxy A Quantum is no different than any other current smartphone and, specifically, the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G, with which it shares 99% of its DNA. It is a terminal with Exynos 980, 8 GB of RAM, 6.7-inch AMOLED screen and 64 + 12 + 5 + 5 MP quad camera.
Inside, there is a tiny change. The first is included quantum chip random number generator, capable of generating random numbers without any pattern and totally unpredictable. This tiny chip has a size of 2.5 x 2.5 millimetres. Unlike other normal random number generators, this one ensures complete entropy from the first bit, relying on the noise picked up by the CMOS image sensor LED
This unpredictable random generation has applications in security, biometric identification and generation of encryption keys. Customers will be able to use this extra security provided by the chip in various operator services, such as T ID login or SK Pay.
The Samsung Galaxy A Quantum goes on sale officially on May 22, with a pre-order period starting tomorrow. Its official price is 649,000 Korean won, about 489 euros to change.
