Samsung released its design for the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition, a smartphone for Department of Defence operators and the federal government. Every aspect of the phone was designed for maximum practicality, from extra encryption to drone feed integration and off-grid communication.
The S20 was based on the earlier S9 tactical phone, and Samsung says it is a "massive leap forward in tactical mobility." Samsung says it was tested in the field, and touts it as the"only end user device you'll need for mission planning, training, operations and daily use."
