In order to further increase sales of the Galaxy S20 model, Samsung uses a variety of marketing methods. Currently, the Korean company has announced plans to release a special modification of the smartphone, intended for use by the military and called Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition.
Model Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition essentially has no cardinal technical innovations and is not much different from the standard version of the smartphone. In the military version, Samsung developers added some software changes to the shell and used the more robust Juggernaut case. No changes were made to the components.
The Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition, called up for service, will have a traditional 6.2-inch OLED display. The hardware will run on a Snapdragon 865 chip and will receive 12 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD. The smartphone will be able to work with fifth-generation 5G networks and will be equipped with a main camera with three sensors.
Samsung developers offer for the Tactical Edition several specific functions that the military needs to perform certain missions. However, upon closer inspection, in these functions, you can consider the disguised standard features available on all serial smartphones. The so-called “invisibility mode”, which puts the smartphone into radio silence mode with the blocking of the LTE module and other parts emitting radio frequencies, is very similar to the standard flight mode, which also disables all modules emitting radio frequencies.
The DualDAR encryption mode, brought into line with the US defense requirements for data protection, is not fundamentally different from the same function already used by Samsung in corporate and standard Galaxy S20 models.
Unique software developments include the night mode, when the displays cannot "blind" military personnel wearing night vision goggles. It is also possible to unlock a smartphone in landscape mode.
Another function will be useful to the modern military, whose duties include compiling numerous reports and preparing the necessary documentation. Putting the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition into computer emulation mode, fighters can easily compile a report, plan a combat mission, conduct training and training while on the go or in the field.
The special version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition will not enter the open market and will be implemented for “individual partners via IT channels”. The program will be launched in the third quarter of this year. More accurate data on the appearance date of the army Galaxy S20 and their price are not reported.
