The Samsung Galaxy Quantum 2 has launched in South Korea today. One of the key features of the South Korea-exclusive phone is that it features a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) chip for enhanced security. The same device is expected to be rebranded as the Galaxy A82 5G in certain markets.
The Quantum 2 features a high refresh rate display, and it is powered by a Snapdragon 800-series chipset. For photography, it offers a 64-megapixel triple camera system and autofocus-enabled front-facing camera. The handset has arrived as the successor to last year’s Galaxy A Quantum smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy Quantum 2 specifications and features
The Samsung Galaxy Quantum 2 has a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with an Infinity-O design. The screen offers a QHD+ resolution of 1,440 x 3,200 pixels, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of 1,200 nits.
The Snapdragon 855+ chipset, which fueled some of the flagship phones in 2019, is present at the helm of the Galaxy Quantum 2. The SoC is accompanied by 6GB of RAM, and it offers 128GB of built-in storage. For additional storage, it has a microSD card slot. The handset carries support for 25W fast charging for its 4,500mAh battery.
The 2.5mm QNRG chip is capable of generating random number codes by capturing noise from low-budget components like an LED and a CMOS sensor. This chip helps in providing improved security for authentication, banking, and messaging apps. The phone also features an in-display fingerprint scanner for security. The handset runs One UI 3.1 based on Android 11.
Placed on the front of the Galaxy Quantum 2 is a 10-megapixel selfie camera with autofocus support. The rear camera island has a 64-megapixel primary camera with OIS support and f/1.8 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide snapper with 123-degree FOV, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Quantum 2 offers the usual connectivity functions such as dual-SIM support, 5G, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.
