It is said to be the world’s first 5G phone featuring the Quantum Random Number Generation(QRNG) chipset. Switzerland based SK Telecom subsidiary, ID Quantique developed the QRNG S2Q000 chipset.
The QRNG chipset is said to produce quantum crypto-based unpredictable as well as patternless pure random numbers or keys thereby ensuring safe SK Pay, T ID login, and initial.
