Samsung Galaxy Quantum 2
The Quantum 2 may just look like any other A series phone but this one has a special feature up its sleeve.
The Quantum 2 comes with Snapdragon 855+ SoC, 6GB ram, 128GB Storage, a 4500mAh battery with 25w fast charging support. The display is a 6.7″ 1440P AMOLED 120Hz panel.
The rear camera module consists of a 64MP primary camera that has OIS support, and an f/1.8 aperture. The other two sensors of the phone are a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP depth sensor. The smartphone features a 10-megapixel camera at the front. Dimensions-wise, the phone measures at around 161.9mm x 73.8mm x 8.1mm, and weighs 176 grams.
QRNG security chipset
The QRNG or Quantum Random Number Generator chipset is the world’s smallest chipset at 2.5mm squared. What it does is that the chipset generates random codes by capturing noise from an LED and a CMOS sensor, for use with banking apps and services. Samsung is partnering with Shinhan Bank, Standard Chartered Bank Korea, and T World to support the Galaxy Quantum2’s QRNG chip.
Price & Availability
The Quantum 2 will be available globally as the Samsung A82. However, the price of the Quantum 2 in Korea is KRW 699,600 ($622 / PKR95,212). The device will be available for pre-orders starting from today i.e April 13th, and it will go on sale from April 23rd. As of now, Samsung has not confirmed any details regarding the global availability of the Quantum 2.
I think this phone is a little bit expensive for its specifications. If you are a fan of the A series I would suggest you look at the other models that may provide you a better price to performance ratio. But what do you guys think of this phone? Do you think it is good? Will you buy it? And what do you think it should cost in Pakistan when it launches here officially? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
