The Samsung Galaxy S20 TE supports various forms of communication including 5G, Wi-Fi 6, private SIM and CRBS radio (a 3.5 GHz frequency reserved for the military and communication with satellites) to cover all communication needs in the field.
Hardware features include a night vision mode, a body use mode that allows you to unlock the screen in landscape mode and a “stealth mode” that is similar to an extreme airplane mode as it blocks any RF emission.
The Galaxy S20 TE has the flagship features of the standard edition, including the DeX interface, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chips, and 12GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 TE will be available in Q3 2020 through select IT channel partners.
