Samsung Releases Tactical Edition Galaxy S20

Samsung has introduced the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition (TE), a mission-ready smartphone solution tailored to the needs of operators in the US government.

Samsung described the capabilities of the new Galaxy S20 TE as being able to ‘operate seamlessly with a range of existing peripherals and supports the requirements of tactical and classified applications, especially those designed to help operators navigate complex terrain, expansive distances, and the potential loss of communication with command units.’

Galaxy S20 TE also introduces DualDAR architecture, which delivers two layers of data encryption based on NSA standards to secure up to top-secret level data for classified missions.

Taher Behbehani, Head of the Mobile B2B Division, SVP and General Manager, Samsung Electronics America, said: “The development of this solution is a result of coordination and feedback received from our Department of Defense customers and partners.” 

“The Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition provides the warfighter with the technology that will give them an edge in the field, while providing their IT teams with an easy-to-deploy, highly secure solution that meets the demands of their regulated environment.”
