Samsung and South Korean network operator SK Telecom have reportedly joined forces once again for the purpose of creating a second Galaxy smartphone equipped with a so-called quantum RNG chip for advanced security. The first Galaxy A Quantum phone was released last year and it was based on the Galaxy A71 5G. This year, reports claim that the upcoming Galaxy A Quantum 2 will be a rebranded Galaxy A82 5G which will be equipped with the impressive QRNG chip.
Galaxy A Quantum 2 / Galaxy A82 5G to go on sale next month
The Galaxy A82 5G and the Galaxy A Quantum 2 will share many hardware specs as they are essentially the same device with one key difference – the QRNG chip. Therefore, both the Galaxy A Quantum 2 and the Galaxy A82 5G are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 855+ chipset.
According to the Korean media, the Galaxy A Quantum 2 was created because the original model proved to be successful enough. The first Galaxy A Quantum topped 300,000 sales in its first six months on the market after it was released in May 2020.
The Galaxy A Quantum 2 will reportedly go on sale next month for around 700,000-800,000 won ($618-$706). If true, then the standard Galaxy A82 5G is likely planned to hit the shelves around the same time.
