As one of the world’s leaders in mobile electronics, it’s no surprise that Samsung makes some of the best military-grade smartphones in addition to its regular civilian models. And after previously releasing of the Galaxy S8 Active, the Korean conglomerate has now pulled the cover off of an even-more rugged mil-spec smartphone with the new Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition.

Enshrouded in a hardwearing case backed by a folding shield, the phone packs a 6” 1440p display, a Snapdragon 865 processor, 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery (an almost 40% greater capacity than the iPhone X). Developed using feedback from DOD personnel, the S20 TE comes preloaded with military-grade encryption from the Samsung Knox mobility platform and can connect to a host of peripherals such as tactical radios and other mission systems. The S20 TE also gets DualDAR two-layer encryption (which meets NSA standards for top-secret level data), boasts a stealth mode that turns off all LTE and RF broadcasting, and a special mode for using the phone while wearing night-vision goggles. Though pricing has yet to be revealed, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition is slated for a release in Q3 of 2020.
