Samsung Launches the Galaxy S20 James Bond Would Love
Samsung has officially launched the so-called Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition, a special version of its flagship Android device that’s optimized for Federal Government and Department of Defense use. While the device comes with a rugged case, there’s nothing that adds extra durability to the Galaxy S20, and most of the magic happens in terms of software. So the first highlight is support for military operations with dedicated modes. One of them is tailored for night vision eyewear and makes it possible to automatically turn the display on and off.
A stealth mode can disable LTE and RF broadcasting, and Samsung says the device can be unlocked in landscape when it’s mounted on the chest. Samsung also emphasizes that the Galaxy S20 excels in terms of security, as it uses Samsung Knox, the company’s system that protects all versions of the Android device. "Not available in Samsung stores" But there’s more coming to customers with the Galaxy S20 TE. “DualDAR architecture further secures the device with two layers of encryption, even when the device is in a powered off or unauthenticated state. This multi-layer, embedded defense system helps Galaxy S20 TE meet the most stringent regulated industry requirements, including NSA’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSFC) Component’s List, and Mobile Device Fundamental Protection Profile (MDF PP) as laid out by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP),” Samsung explains.
“Galaxy S20 TE comes out of the box approved for use within the Department of Defense (DoD) using the Android 10 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) as laid out by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).” You can find all technical specifications in the box after the jump. The bad news is that you won’t be able to purchase this Galaxy S20 yourselves, as it will only be offered through select IT channel partners beginning with the third quarter of this year.
