Surprise! Samsung has announced that it’s developed a special version of its Galaxy S20 phone for the US federal government and Department of Defence.
Called the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition, the phone is basically a customised version of the regular S20.
Which means under the hood you get mostly the same components, such as the 6.2-inch AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 865 SoC, LTE and sub-6 5G support, triple-lens rear camera (12MP wide + 64MP tele for 3x hybrid zoom + 12MP ultra-wide), up to 8K @ 24fps video recording and 4,000mAh battery.
What’s different though is the software package and app support. As Samsung explains: “With a highly customised software and feature set, the Galaxy S20 TE can 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.
