According to the press release by Samsung Electronics America, Inc., the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition is bundled with a highly-customized software and feature set with "support for the requirements of tactical and classified applications, especially those created to help operators navigate complex terrain, expansive distances, and the potential loss of communication with command units". Galaxy S20 TE caters to the unique needs of military operators, through customization of numerous device features.

The Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition also has a night-vision mode that allows the user to turn the display on or off when wearing night-vision eyewear. Operators can easily unlock the device screen in landscape mode while it's mounted to their chest, and quick launch their most commonly used apps at the push of a button.

But this isn't just a Galaxy S20 with a paint job: it can hook up to military-grade tactical radios and mission systems via Private SIM, 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and CBRS (a 3.5Ghz frequency mostly reserved for the US Navy, satellite-to-earth communications, and very limited public use, per Network World).

And, of course, it wouldn't be Samsung if they didn't promote its DeX feature in case any soldier wants to hook their Galaxy S20 TE up to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse for a pseudo-computer experience. The Samsung Galaxy S20 TE will be sporting 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, Android 10 with One UI 2, and is to be released in the third quarter of 2020 "through select IT channel partners".
